I have been on resort courses before and we plan to get certified before the honeymoon if we can squeeze it in. I’m sure you’ll pass your tests! THe open water stuff can be challenging if you haven’t been swimming regularly!

My friends got certified on their honeymoon and you can definitely tell the difference between someone who got resort certified and classroom certified. I think classroom is definitely the way to go!! I’m signing up soon for my certification. I’m so excited!!

I got scuba certified when I was 16 to go on a trip through my high school & it was the best thing I ever did! I have dove in Belize & the Cayman Islands & cant wait to dive again in Hawaii on our honeymoon.  The classroom is definitely the way to go! Good luck everyone

I signed up for PADI’s online course, then did my open-water dives with an instructor in Puerto Rico (this was convenient for me because I lived there at the time!) This exact setup obviously is not an option for everyone, but it can be a great comprimise to do the online stuff before you leave, then just complete your final open water dives for the certification once you get to a tropical locale (as long as they have PADI instructors.)

So worth it ladies – SCUBA is such a blast, and an awesome way to share a special experience with your man.

I got certified in Thailand a few years back and my husband I entertained the idea of going scuba diving on our honeymoon in Bora Bora. But when we got there, we were way too lazy and the water was so clear, we were pretty happy with snorkeling and kayaking for free.

I do have to say that I also had trouble with my swim test, which was conducted in choppy waters off of Koh Lanta, but he let me pass. And the 2 days of scuba diving were really tiring. But then again, I’m also super out of shape.
