THE most important dive course there is!!!!

“Challenging” and “rewarding” best describe the PADI Stress & Rescue Diver course. Building upon what you’ve already learned, this course expands on what you already know about how to prevent problems, and how to manage them if they occur.

The fun part about this course is rising to challenges and mastering them. Most divers find this course both demanding and rewarding, and at the end, say it’s the best course they’ve ever taken.

If you would like to save time while here in Cozumel, it is possible to complete all the theory studies at home, on-line, to your own schedule and at your leisure. This will make your course here so easy, typically just two-three half days nothing but fun. If you choose this option, your Rescue course here is only $340.
