Open Water Diver Course
The PADI Open Water Diver Course is the classic beginner course. This course offers a lifetime certification to dive to 60 feet/18 meters anywhere in the world. Once you have completed the course you will receive a certification card you can take anywhere you go as a record of your training experience.
What does it involve?
YES! we do our open water dives off a boat!!
When first learning to scuba dive, many students experience a steep learning curve with the excess gear - a 35 lb scuba tank, 30lbs of lead weight, a hood, gloves etc. is a lot of equipment when you are trying to learn in a unique new environment. When we teach shore dives, many students find it difficult to navigate the shores of BC with an extra 60+ lbs of weight on their back. Diving in cold water can be more challenging than diving in the tropics; as such, we do our best to eliminate unnecessary challenges for our students.
Why learn in a drysuit?
The diving in BC is cold: so is the top of Mount Everest. If you are properly equipped, you will have fun. Over the years we have found that teaching students in wet suits is not fun for us, or the students. To ensure our students are comfortable, we have brought in a full range of drysuits and undergarments to guarantee everyone stays warm and has a fun time learning how to dive.
$549.95+tax includes all gear and PADI eLearning
