Passport Diver

Earn your Passport Scuba Diver certification by completing the required open water dives with a Go Dive Instructor. Upon successful completion, you may continue to enjoy scuba diving under the direct supervision of an Instructor or dive leader for up to 12 months. Engaging in such activities during the initial 12-month period automatically extends your passport for an additional 12 months. NAUI Passport Scuba Divers are qualified to participate in supervised dives in conditions similar to those in which they are trained.

As an active Passport holder, you are encouraged to continue your diving education by attending a NAUI Scuba Diver Certification Program. The successful completion of a NAUI Scuba Diver Program bestows upon you the freedom to dive independent of direct supervision, and if you enroll within six months of your most recent Passport experience, your skills proficiency may be credited towards the requirements of the course. Read more
