 All of our certification courses are through the Professional Association of Dive Instructors (PADI) an internationally recognized organization that is leading the way people learn to scuba dive. The first level of certification is the PADI Open Water Diver course. The course consists of three parts: academics, confined water and open water.

Academics

  The academics portion is now online, giving you the freedom to learn all about scuba diving at your own pace, from the comfort of your home. To experience a sample of PADI’s eLearning program you can download the PADI Library app and go through the free introduction.

Prerequisites

The minimum age for PADI Open Water is 10 years old and everyone must be able to swim. We will have you complete swim and float test at the first pool session. 

Medical Clearance

Every scuba diving participant is required to fill out a medical statement that screens for conditions that may affect the safety of diving. Any “yes” answer doesn’t mean you cant dive, but we will require approval from your doctor prior to the start of class. You can download the form below.
