Go Dive with PADI Open Water

    Padi Open Water Referral

    If you’ve started your PADI Open Water Diver Course and have completed part, but not the entire course – this program is for you.
    The course is based on the student having completed all the theory sessions and pool work, which means you already own a certification pack and just need to do the four ocean dives – but don’t worry if you haven’t, we can quote you on what you need to do to complete your course based on what you’ve already achieved.

    We offer the PADI referral course over just two days (4 Ocean Dives) and includes dives at some of Bali’s best dive sites around Padang Bai and Tulamben, most notably the ship wreck of the USAT Liberty ship wreck, sunk during World War 2. The cost of diving these sites as a qualified diver and without an instructor would be around $215.
    You will need to have completed all of the PADI OPen Water Course theory, either on line or at a PADI Dive Center and also have completed all of the swimming pool training. This is 5 chapters of theory with Knowledge Reviews and Quizzes completed, as well as the 50 question Final Exam completed and all 5 pool training sessions completed. Your referring Dive Center should have provided you with a photocopy of your file, showing these to have been done, which serves as the referral form.
    The PADI Referral Course simply adds on to any one of our scheduled Open Water Diving Courses, during the last two days of the program which is the ocean diving.
    If you have not yet purchased a certification pack from PADI, then you will need to add this to become a certified diver. This adds $99 and can be added at the extras stage of your booking – although you should already have this from your referring Instructor or Dive Centre.
    Sometimes people need a PADI referral program because they were unable to complete their program. Maybe they got sick during the course or could not complete the program for another reason. If this is the case, please “Contact Us” and let us know. We will need to know hat you have successfully completed and we will be glad to quote you on a customized PADI referral Course to suit your specific circumstances

    Course Outline

    Ok, so you made it onto your course, now we just have some paperwork to complete before we head off into the classroom for the videos and educational materials.


    If you have not completed some of your PADI Open Water Course, then we can review and complete anything needed during the paperwork stage.


    Now all the classroom sessions and paperwork is complete, if you require it we can head to the pool to complete any remaining skills, if how ever you only have the 4 ocean dives left then we will head straight to the ocean.

    • Alternatively, if you have someone who just wishes to come along to the dive site, chill on the beach and join you for lunch (lunch is included in “Land Content”) the you can add this person in “Extras” and of course you can always “Contact Us” for help in booking either tag along divers or Land Content participants to join you
    All you need to do to book is choose the best date that suits you from the calendar, then how many people are in your group and click “Book Now”. This will take you to the “Extras” page where you can choose to add souvenir T shirts, hire corrected mask etc.  and confirm – or skip this page

    This will bring up a summary of your order and also calculate the deposit needed to confirm your booking. You will also need to complete your personal details. We use Pay Pal to accept deposits for your protection and you don’t need to be a member of Pay Pal to use this service. You can even use your credit card.

    You can either choose to “Pay Now” which will be just the deposit – or you can “Make another booking” and add to your order if you wish.


    Our scheduled dates are shown on our on line booking system, but sometimes this date is not convenient.

    If you wish to book a program for a date not listed as available on our booking calendar please simply contact our sales team through our “Contact Us” button. Most often we can confirm your request for a preferred date, and of course the more advance notice we have the easier it is to accommodate this date. If there are at least two of you wishing to dive on the same date this really helps us.
