PADI Open Water manual for your scuba course in Maui.

Beginner Scuba Diver

The beginner PADI Scuba Diver course is a single-day certification that includes two scuba dives. The cost is $399, which covers all of your rental gear, plus PADI certification fees. So, if you don’t have time to commit to a multi-day course, this could make your Maui vacation perfect. We advise that you consider booking early to ensure availability on your preferred diving date.

Open Water Referral Dives

Sign up for the PADI Open Water Referral Dives to complete four dives in two days. The Referral course is our most popular PADI certification, but you need to provide referral documentation from your previous instructor before arriving on Maui. We also offer private certification courses and small groups.

Please consider that this course requires good physical health. You must be comfortable swimming in the ocean and answer No to every question on the medical statement.

Open Water Diver

Getting your PADI certification in Maui is an incredible experience. If you feel you are ready to become a certified scuba diver, join our instructor team for a 2-day course. Our unique Maui diving location allows for easy entry into the ocean and coral reef to 50 feet.

The PADI Open Water Diver course has three main parts: dive theory, skills practice, and training dives. There is a quiz for chapters one to four, a final exam, confined water skills, and four open water dives. Remember, PADI Certifications are valid for life, so your training is thorough and professional.

Advanced Open Water Diver

Do you want to scuba dive to 100 feet? You can become a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver on Maui with Banyan Tree Divers. Join us to experience five dives, including, but not limited to, electives like Deep, Photography, Navigation, Wreck, and Peak Performance Buoyancy.

Your five dives take place over 2 to 3 days, depending on your Maui vacation plans. You can learn more on our website about the Advanced course and how to apply completed dives as credit towards your PADI certification.

Rescue Diver

Divers that are 12 years or older can sign up for the PADI Rescue Diver course. This course teaches you how to manage emergencies in the water, builds confidence in your scuba diving skills, and provides you with unique training. To earn your Rescue Diver certification, our staff creates realistic emergency exercises. These different scenes culminate in two rescue scenarios to develop a scuba experience for you to remember for the rest of your life.

Banyan Tree Divers wants to ensure that you have a memorable visit to Maui with our team of experts.
