 This covers the first 2 parts of the certification.  Once completed, you'll need to do four Open Water Dives which you can find here.

Minimum age for group classes is 12 years old.  10 & 11 year olds may take the class privately.

  • Come into the store to pick up your packet and fill out paperwork.  Once this is done we will issue your eLearning. The eLearning must be completed by the first day of your class.
  • Please look at the PADI Medical release everyone must complete to take this class.  You can find it here.  If anyone answers YES to questions 3, 5 or 10 on page one OR to any of the questions on page 2, please read and agree to the statement above by signing and dating it AND take all three pages of this form (Participant Questionnaire and the Physician’s Evaluation Form) to your physician for a medical evaluation as participation in a diving course requires your physician’s approval. 
  • Students must provide their own SCUBA quality mask, fin, snorkel and boots (if their fins require them), as well as bathing suit and towel for all class sessions.

PADI Open Water Diver Certification has three parts:

  1. Confined Water (or pool) Dives develop basic scuba skills and Watermanship Assessment consisting of a 10 minute tread or float and a 300 yard mask/fin/snorkel swim.
  2. Academic (eLearning) teaches about equipment, safety and dive planning.


      3. You'll do Four Open Water Dives where you'll demonstrate the scuba skills you learned in Confined Water but in an Open Water environment such as lake, quarry or ocean.

You will need your own Scuba quality mask, fins, snorkel and boots. This is basic gear that you will take with you wherever you go Scuba diving. Snorkel fins are not allowed.

If you like the water and adventure, you can probably become a PADI diver. Keep in mind the following:

  • You will need to fill out a medical form. Sometimes a doctor's approval is required before you can begin the class.
  • You must know how to swim. You don't have to be a great swimmer but you should be comfortable.
  • There is homework. The PADI eLearning is included in the class price and must be completed before the confined water/pool sessions.
  • Minimum age for the group classes is 12 years old. See the Youth flyer for children ages 10-11.
  • Classes are nonrefundable.  $50 pp transfer fee to change dates. Classes subject to price increase if changed.
