Open Water Classes

Where do I start?

Becoming a scuba diver is the first step in a journey that will forever change the way you experience the world. You will explore the wonders of a weightless underwater world, interact with incredible marine life and discover ecosystems hidden beneath the surface.


Learning to dive is much easier than you think and the best way to experience this amazing new sport is the SSI Try Scuba program


If you want to dive anywhere you want, with anyone you want, the Open Water Diver program is your international certification to be part of an exclusive group of underwater explorers that most people only dream about joining.

Step 3: Classroom
We will be going over the content that you learned in Step 2, review the questions, and take a test(we promise it isn't hard). During this time the instructor will go over pool and open water schedules as well as fitting you for the scuba equipment that you will be using throughout your training.

Step 4: Pool
Time for the FUN part! We will practice all those new skills over and over until they are second nature and you are comfortable.

Step 5: Open Water
Did we already say time for the FUN part? There are a total of 4 dives spread out over 2 days. This is where we get to put all of those new skills to use and you get to show us how awesome you are! Once all 4 dives are completed, you are officially certified as an Open Water Diver and can begin to explore the underwater world!
