PADI Open Water Diver Referrals

Another option for the scuba diver or open water is to go to your local dive centre (at home) and complete all the theory and, if you want, all the skill development sessions before you come to sunny Fiji.

Then when you are here, bring us your referral form and we can complete the rest of your course in warm, blue tropical waters, called a PADI Open Water Diver Referral– definitely a more enjoyable option for those of you from colder climates.

PADI Open Water Diver Referrals. Have you completed your confined water training, knowledge development, quizzes and exam with a PADI centre elsewhere, during the past year?
