No! We appreciate it when a guest offers to assist or provide moral support to a student during the Open Water Course. However, guest divers are not welcome to participate or assist in any part of the PADI Open Water Diver Course. It is not recommended for certified divers to dive with students during training dives for myriad reasons. One reason is that guests are not licensed or insured to teach the PADI Open Water Course. By assisting they place themselves and the instructor in an unfavorable litigious position. It is also a clear violation of agency standards to have non professionally licensed assistance in class, pool or ocean sessions. The Scuba Fusion Dive Center AND its instructors reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.
