We are planning a trip this July and want to get certified in diving. My husband needs a refresher, and my 15 yr old son needs certification. We are looking into the course work at home and the dive in Ambergris. How does this work? and can you tell me the approx cost??? and time involved.
Can't wait--first timers!!!

It is very possible to do what you are asking. Finish all the course and pool work at home and get a referral for the open water dive portion. Once here it is 2 days of diving and you are certified. For your husbands refresher it will depend on how long it has been since he dove but we typically include a refresher with the first dive if it is needed at no additional cost.
The referral course runs $250US. If you have any other questions feel free to email us.
