Open Water Scuba Diver

Scuba Diver (or Open Water Scuba Diver) is our entry level scuba certification course, open to anyone over the age of 10.  During the course you will learn the fundamental knowledge and skills to safely scuba dive in open water. When you complete your class you and your buddy will be free to explore and discover the many wonders of the underwater world…and you will have earned a certification card that is recognized worldwide!


You will begin your scuba lessons, or Certification, with the online course - you will be provided with a code to access the online training portion of your course when you sign up. The material you have covered online will be reinforced in the classroom, before attending the first pool session. The knowledge you have gained is then applied in a pool environment, where you can learn and hone your basic diving skills in a safe, controlled environment. After completing your theoretical and practical training in the pool, you will do 4 dives in an open water environment and experience first hand the fun and excitement Scuba Diving has to offer!
