Scuba Diver Certification

Quick Details


Become PADI or SSI Certified Diver in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands!

This program is for students who do not have the time to complete the Open Water Diver program, and provides you with the training and experience required to dive in open water environments under the supervision of a dive professional. It can be accomplished in one day! You will earn the PADI or SSI Scuba Diver certification, which can be upgraded to the PADI or SSI Open Water Diver certification with additional training.

This course is offered by PADI or SSI and offers you to be a fully certified Scuba Diver. It does have some limitations, compared to being an Open Water Diver, however. You must dive under the direct supervision of a Dive Guide and are limited to 12 meters/40 feet. If you would like to be able to dive more freely and a little deeper, check out our standard Open Water Diver courses!
