Trips Per Diver

An online independent study of all the exciting new things you need to know as a soon-to-be certified open water scuba diver. This knowledge development can be done at your own pace in the comfort of your home on your phone or laptop before your vacation in the Cayman Islands.

The PADI Open Water Diver course enables you to dive anywhere in the world down to 60 feet (18 metres). We offer a premium service to all our student divers by including the eLearning in our course price so there's less steps for you and more free-time spent learning and having fun. The course paperwork will also be sent ahead of your arrival to be filled out online to ensure there are no unexpected delays to the start of your course with us.

You’ll learn and master in water dive skills from one of our highly-trained PADI Scuba Instructors during confined and open water dives. The skills you learn during these dives will prepare you to explore a whole new world. Ocean Frontiers recommends that you support your hometown dive shop by considering purchasing your mask, fins and snorkel, and physical logbook from them before you visit the Cayman Islands. After you are a PADI certified diver, you may wish to return to your hometown dive shop to purchase your very own scuba gear or sign up for a specialty class.
