Getting Your Scuba Diving Certifications

We want you to spend as much of your time on St Croix as possible in the water! So, we’re partnered with PADI eLearning which allows you to take the first part of your certification course online at your own pace from anywhere in the world. After you’ve completed PADI eLearning, you’ll book your Course Completion with Cane Bay Dive Shop and hit the water with one of our PADI-certified instructors.
