Course Details

If you’ve always wondered what lies beneath the surface, now’s the time to find out. Start the journey of a lifetime with the PADI Open Water Diver course. It will change you forever. Our friendly and experienced staff will be your dive buddies, helping you to learn how to explore the underwater world as a SCUBA Diver! 

It's a fun and enjoyable process, and you can begin TODAY with independent study at your own pace!  Then, join us for fun learning in our comfortable classroom, in the pool and in open water.  This is usually done over two weekends.  Check our calendar to see how quickly you can join the Adventure.

Open Water Diver PART 1:

Before you know it, you'll be in the water experiencing the fun and freedom of diving.  It takes just a bit of independent study--at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home--to get ready to join in the fun.  The course materials and video will prepare for this great Adventure. After reviewing and expanding what you have learned with one of our friendly PADI Instructors, you head to the pool where you’ll learn everything from setting up your gear to easily getting water out of your mask without surfacing. Plus, you'll make new friends--dive buddies--and have a great time.

Part 1 is usually completed within 3 days, from Friday to Sunday.

This is where you have fun putting it all together and fully experience the underwater adventure – at the beginner level, of course.
