Open Water Certification


It’s instant fun. Just add water!


The PADI Open Water Course is your first step to a lifetime of adventure! You only need your own mask, fins, snorkel, and boots for the course. We provide everything else necessary for diving.

Get Certified in Three Easy Steps!


Pool Sessions


Learn the necessary skills to become a safe and comfortable diver in our 13 foot deep custom designed indoor heated pool. Our instructors will completely prepare you for actual diving conditions.

Designed as self-study, you can complete the knowledge development portion of the course in the comfort of your home. Your materials include the required PADI DVD, book, logbook, recreational dive planner, and other helpful information.


Certification Dives
