Open Water Diver

This is the entry level certification that starts your scuba adventure. Training consists of some home self study, then 5 modules of pool and classroom time, usually about 20 hours total and can be completed over the course of 3 days. Then it's on to the lake for your 4 checkout dives, completed over 2 days. So, in as little as 2 weekends you can be an Open Water Diver! Certification prepares you to dive anywhere in the world! Explore ancient shipwrecks, observe fish interaction on a tropical reef, or see what lies just below the surface of your local lakes.
Open Water Diver allows you and a buddy to dive to 60 feet without any assistance from a scuba professional, such as an instructor or divemaster.

$355 for pool/classroom training - includes PADI materials and rental gear.
It is recommended for students to have their own Mask, Snorkel, Fins and Boots for class. Check with us for discount package deals!
