Diving Courses

Want to join or expand your knowledge about the world of scuba divers?

If you’re not a scuba diver, or maybe it’s been a while since you’ve been in the water, there’s no better place than Corn Island, Nicaragua to learn to dive or get a refresher. You could be a certified Open Water scuba diver by the time your vacation is over! We’re happy to offer certifications through both PADI and SSI, from beginner courses all the way through to Divemaster*.

Class sizes

Class sizes at Dos Tiburones are always small to facilitate the maximum amount of personal instruction that each student receives. Safety and comfort are our primary concerns, and your first diving experience will be done in the island’s only pool, thanks to Casa Canada Resort. When you’re ready, you’ll move on to dives in the warm Caribbean sea where you’ll see corals in abundance, stingrays, eagle rays, hundreds of varieties of reef fish, and maybe even a sea turtle or a dolphin or two if you’re lucky!

Try Scuba Diving

You can try diving without a large commitment of time and money with a half day Discover or Try Scuba Diving course where you will dive with an instructor by your side! Or take the full Open Water course and you’ll be able to dive anywhere in the world for a lifetime! Already certified divers can take the next step with our Advanced Open Water/Advanced Adventurer courses, or beyond to Rescue and Divemaster certifications.
