DISCOVER SCUBA

$135

Have you always wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you want to try scuba diving, but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is for you

 

While not a scuba certification course, Discover Scuba is a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.  First a brief introduction to dive theory, then several skills in confined water (either in our pool or just off the palapa), followed by a dive with your instructor in the clear waters of the Caribbean to a maximum depth of 40 feet

 

Equipment rental included; $5 marine park fee applies

An additional dive with your instructor can be arranged for $85

PADI SCUBA DIVER

$325

A subset of the PADI Open Water Diver course, the the PADI Scuba Diver rating is the perfect option if you’re short on time but really want to become a diver.  This course is an intermediate step for earning an Open Water Diver certification, if that’s your ultimate goal

** PADI REFERRAL OPTION

If you've already completed the knowledge development and confined water training with a PADI dive shop at home, you can do a referral to finish certification with Barefoot Divers (typically 2 half days with dives at 8:30 and 10:30 each day).  The cost for the 4 Open Water Certification Dives is $295. 

Please note that it's crucial that you bring all of the PADI referral paperwork (provided by your dive center at home) with you.  If the paperwork is inaccurate or incomplete, this can cause major delays in the process, as we cannot proceed with the referral dives until the paperwork is in order

UPGRADE FROM SCUBA DIVER

If you're a PADI Scuba Diver and would like to upgrade your certification to PADI Open Water Diver, it'll only take you 1-2 days, with 2 knowledge development sessions, 2 confined water sessions, and 2 Open Water certification dives. The cost is $285, and a log book is required (available for purchase at Barefoot Divers)

Equipment rental included during the course; $10 marine park fee applies

PADI Open Water certified divers may ​dive anywhere in the world to a maximum of 60 feet

 

 

No prior experience with scuba diving is required, however there are several prerequisites to participate in Discover Scuba & beginner courses:

  • Minimum age of 10 years.  While students 10-14 complete the same course requirements for Scuba Diver or Open Water, they receive a PADI Junior certification with some restrictions

  • Adequate swimming skills

  • Good physical health

 

A confidential PADI medical questionnaire must be completed before participating.  The purpose of the questionnaire is to find out whether there is a preexisting condition that may affect your safety while diving, in which case you must seek the advice of your physician and receive their clearance prior to engaging in dive activities

PADI BUBBLEMAKER EXPERIENCE FOR KIDS

1 hour  |  $100

Children as young as 8 can have the thrill of trying scuba diving in our pool, staying at a depth of less than 6 feet of water. Your child should be comfortable in the water, but doesn’t need to be a super swimmer

Brick Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands

TA best of the best.png

Barefoot Cay is one pearl in a necklace of cays off the south shore of Roatan in the Bay Islands. The resort is positioned perfectly for the trade winds to create a tropical breeze over the entire Cay

Centrally located between Roatan's more touristed West side and less-populated East end, our locale provides the perfect jumping-off point for exploring and experiencing the island; ask our front desk staff to assist with arranging taxi service, or a rental car if you'd prefer to venture out on your own

Our step-on pontoon passenger ferry is available 24 hours a day to transit guests across the narrow 85' channel that separates the Cay from the Barefoot Divers building on the Roatan shore, so guests have convenient access to the island of Roatan and all areas of the resort
