Open Water Diver

The Carib Inn offers the PADI Open Water Diver course for those who want to become certified SCUBA divers. This is done through classroom, confined water, and open water sessions.

Once on Bonaire

Once you are here on Bonaire, the first day starts with a swim test followed by classroom in the morning and confined water in the afternoon. This is approximately a six-hour day. The next day is similar, usually finishing up all classroom and confined water skills, including the written exam.

On the following two days, the open water dives are completed from our dock or our boats, one each morning and one each afternoon. Our classes are small averaging two or three students per class. Everything is included except the Bonaire Marine Park tag, tags are required for all diving on Bonaire. If you will be taking this course, you need to fill out the Medical Form.
