Ice Diving Course

Explore the unique aquascape found only under ice. You can be one of the few that have ever dived under a solid ceiling of ice. Plus, imagine the look on your Divemaster’s face on your next Caribbean trip when you flash your PADI Ice Diver certification.
You might get a chance to play with your exhaled air bubbles on the bottom of the ice or an opportunity to try the unique sport of upside down, bottom of the ice, skiing.
You will complete a minimum of three ice dives for your certification. Dives are typically done as a group working with support personnel, divers, tenders, and safety divers. You are under the ice to learn to control buoyancy, navigate under the ice, and keep in contact with the lead diver and tenders via line pulls.

PADI Open Water Referral Courses

We offer referral courses during the winter months to expedite dive training for people headed to warm beaches with lots of sun. Just do your diving done down south!
The PADI Open Water Diver course is typically comprised of three components. With a Torpedo Rays Referral Course you'll do the first 2 components with us, and the ocean dives down south. Here's how it breaks down:

  • Academic Curriculum - Completed Online
  • Pool (Confined Water) Training - Completed in the pool
  • Ocean (Open Water) Training - Done on vacation!

The benefit of the referral course is that you will get top notch, local instruction on the academic curriculum, and pool training.
Then, the best part is you finish your ocean training abroad on your vacation. No class rooms and no book work on your holiday. Only diving, and lots of fun!
