Now is the time to dive into the PADI Open Water Diver course, the most popular dive program in the world! This is your ticket to a lifetime of intense adventure with PADI, the dive company that sets the standards in the global diving community.

The $295 covers your tuition to the classroom session and pool session. All your scuba gear (BCD, regulator w/ gauges, tanks and weights) is also included in the $295 tuition fee.You will need your own Mask,Fins,Snorkel of Scuba quality. Sporting goods snorkeling sets are not designed for scuba divers so they will not be allowed.
The PADI Open Water Referral Course is held pretty much EVERY weekend at our store with our heated indoor pool.
You have 2 choices for the PADI Referral Program

All Day Saturday PADI Referral 9am-12:30pm Classroom and then 1pm-5pm Pool.

Saturday and Sunday PADI Referral 9am-12:30pm Classroom and then Sunday 9am-1pm Pool.

PADI programs are performance based. You proceed as you demonstrate mastery of the course skills. We keep the Instructor to student ratio small and personal. One instructor to four students. This allows us to teach the pool session in one day, if you require additional pool time

Before you attend the classroom session you need to read the entire PADI Open Water Diver manual. In that manual there are 5 chapters and at the end of each chapter is a knowledge review. The knowledge review is homework REQUIRED for class and consists of 15-20 multiple choice questions. The knowledge reviews must be completed by each student and is required for entry to class.

After the homework and classroom work is done we will jump into our heated indoor pool to start diving! There you will learn all your confined water dive skills required to be a PADI open water diver.

Once the classroom and pool session are completed you are required to-do 4 open water dives in a true open water environment. We do our dives at a local rock quarry from May- October. Your PADI open water diver referral document shows that you completed everything necessary to complete your 4 open water dives out on vacation within 12 months of your pool work.
The best part of being a PADI diver is you can easily finish your dives at any PADI dive center anywhere in the world.
