Open Water Certification
  1. AcademicsHow Do You Learn Best?
    Traditional Classroom: Read at home on your own, then meet with an instructor to review the knowledge face-to- face, ask questions, and be more hands-on with gear. Flexible scheduling available.
    On-Line Learning: Work from your home to complete the learning online and then meet one time with an instructor for a review of any difficulties and a verification quiz.
  2. Pool SessionsLearn On Your Pace At Pool Develop and practice scuba skills in a pool under direct instructor supervision. As you learn new skills at your own pace, you’ll build the abilities and confidence needed for diving in open water, such as in a lake or the ocean. People take on average 4 pool sessions to master the skills. The cost of your lessons includes up to 6 pools sessions if you need the time at no extra charge. Currently we use 3 local pools. 
  3. Open Water Training DivesGet ready to experience everything you’ve learned with the freedom of open water. As soon as your open water training dives are approved by your instructor you will be certified as a PADI Open Water Diver, enabling you to embark on unforgettable adventures.
