The PADI System of Diver Training

As a full-service PADI Dive Center, Scubawest is dedicated to excellence in diver training at all levels, from beginner, through continuing diver education, all the way to professional-level certification.

Start Diving!

This section will describe the several options open to those who are not yet certified divers and even for those who know they never will be. Scuba diving used to be something like being an astronaut -- easier to want than to have. But since those days, technology and training methods have developed as much in the field of recreational diving as they have in the field of home computers! Even children as young as ten can safely participate in this extraordinary sport!

If you are interested in completing the academic and confined water portions of your PADI Open Water Course at home, then coming to St. Croix and Scubawest to complete your open water dives during the first two days of your dive vacation, click on "Start Diving!" to learn the details!

Advanced Diver Training

Everything beyond the entry level! Specialty diver courses can make dive vacations that much more exciting and fun. And every certified diver should consider the Master Scuba Diver certification -- the highest non-professional certification level a recreational diver can achieve. The Master Scuba Diver Track includes all certification levels between Open Water Diver and professional-level certification. And for those divers who have been away from the sport for some time and would like an instructor-guided reintroduction, Advanced Diver Training is the place to be! Or...
