Open Water Referral (Cross-over)

PADI Open Water Referral – Cross Over

PADI Referral Open Water Diver Course is ideal for vacationers, especially people who want to spend minimum time in our classroom during their stay in Roatan. Maybe you have started your course with another affiliation (like SSI), you can do a cross over to PADI thru this course.  A referral class works as follows: You begin your open water diver class training at home, completing the knowledge development and confined water portions of the class at your local dive center. Then you come to Roatan and only have to worry about diving!

By the time you get here in Roatan, you may only need to complete your four open water dives, so it’s into the ocean we go…immediately! A referral class is completed in 2 mornings, leaving the rest of your vacation free to dive some more or do other things!

You need to show up at the dive center in the morning and you will finish up around noon each day. You must bring the referral forms from your original instructor, your medical release if required, your logbook.


  • Bring your referral forms from your original instructor
  • Signed Medical Statement (if required)
  • Bring your logbook
  • Bring your Recreational Dive Planner

Be prepare to have a great time in Roatan!!

All of the other course requirements are the same as for the standard PADI Open Water Diver Course.
