Kathlyn and Jazzalyn arrived on Roatan already certified as PADI Scuba Divers, which certified them to dive to maximum 12m/40ft under the supervision of a professional. As PADI Open Water Divers, they would be able to dive to 18m/60ft and would be certified to plan and execute a dive with a certified buddy instead, so they knew that an upgrade was something they definitely wanted to pursue for greater dive options. The upgrade from PADI Scuba Diver to Open Water Diver is easy and fun, and Roatan is the perfect place to do it!
To upgrade from PADI Scuba Diver to PADI Open Water Diver, the girls finished Sections 4 and 5 of the PADI Open Water Diver course theory, completed Confined Water Sections 4 and 5 and went for the last two Open Water dives of the course. They both did great on the course, demonstrating great buoyancy and CESA and compass comprehension, so this course was a piece of cake!
We're excited to get to dive with them today as certified PADI Open Water Divers, and can't wait to show them more of what Roatan has to offer. Great job, girls!
