Open Water Course
Open Water Course
The Open Water Course is the first certification you need to go on your SCUBA diving adventures!
To enroll in an Open Water Course you need adequate swimming skills and need to be in reasonably good physical health. No prior experience with scuba diving is required. Millions of people have learned to scuba dive and have gone on to discover the wonders of the aquatic world through this course.
All students must be registered with our Dive Center in order to get access to student materials. Even if you are not sure when you want to take the class yet, registering is free and will save you a step later on. Click HERE to register now!
Lastly, all scuba diving classes require a current medical release (it expires every 12 months). All questions must be answered with a fully written YES or NO. If any answer is a YES, please have your physician fill out page 2 and bring it with you on the day of your class. If all the answers are NO, you do not need a physician's signature.
Take time to read it ahead of class so you have the chance to make any appointments with your physician, if needed.
You can find the most current version of the Scuba Medical Release here.
When filling out the student form for your class, you will have the chance to tell us which dates work best for you. If there is still availability for that particular class, we'll reserve your spot and you are all set! In case the class you choose is already full, our staff will call you to schedule to a different class instead.
