Class - Open Water Certification



This is the introductory class to scuba diving certification and can lead you into a new world of adventure and further certifications.

Upon your successful completion of this course you will obtain certification as a PADI Open Water Diver and that will allow you to rent gear and safely dive when and where you want!  It is also the first step to many other exciting classes and underwater adventures.

Before you can begin the in water training you will need to bring us the PADI certificate of completion for your on line training. Note: once you redeem your e-learning code there is no refund for the e-learning which paid directly to PADI.


The only things required for your course that are not included in the class price are your own personal dive gear, which is defined by PADI as your Mask, Fins, Snorkel and safety tube. You may either bring your own, or take advantage of our great dive gear packages and receive discounts on your class or gear. We highly recommend you take a look at our packages before you run out and acquire gear, as we have an awesome selection of high quality dive gear at unbeatable prices.
