Now is the perfect time to dive into a new adventure! The PADI Open Water SCUBA Course is your ticket to a lifetime of excitement. Courses are available for anyone over the age of 10, making SCUBA a fantastic family activity!

The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three separate components.

1.     Knowledge Development:  In this section, the diver will learn the basic principles of scuba diving, done online, in class, or as a self study.

2.     Confined Water Training:  In this section, the diver will learn and practice the fundamental skills necessary to become a certified scuba diver. This is actual hands on learning in the pool applying the basic principles that you learned in class or online.

3.     Certification Dives:  In this section, the diver will participate in and demonstrate skills during a four dive certification process. This certification process is conducted over two days. These dives are done in an open water (non-pool) setting.

Classes start off with a Thursday evening orientation, followed by two Saturday pool sessions. At the conclusion of the last pool session, we will meet briefly to administer a quick review quiz and complete your letter of referral. To enroll in a class, please contact the shop.
