OPEN WATER DIVING COURSE
REGISTRATION FILLS UP QUICKLY
our scuba classes run like this:
you do the on-line course that is supplied by PADI at your own speed.
SATURDAY | 2PM. We will go over gear assembly, Hand signals, safety comprehension and what we will be doing in the pool.
4pm-6pm We will be in the pool for 2 hours going over a bunch of scuba exercises required for the day.
6:30pm We head back down to the shop put all scuba gear away and sign off the log books.
SUNDAY | 2pm. Meet at the shop. Another reiteration of gear assembly unassisted. Review of online curriculum plus an explanation of the set of skills and hand signals being performed for the day.
4pm-6pm In the pool.
So from here you are either done all the confined water work, or you may need a couple more days to complete all the required performance skills. If you feel you would like more pool time regardless, we can always book more time to practice before going into the lake.
As for the on-line course you need to have that done before the open water (lake) portion of the class.
Now it depends on how you want to do the “Open Water Testing.” If you do plan to do the lake portion with us, we will only charge you for that portion of the course, once it's completed. It is an additional $150.00 to do the lake portion with us, which covers 2 days in the lake for 2 dives each day. Including rental gear and the instructor.
If you need extra days beyond those 2 days to complete the required performance skills, that is an additional $75.00 per day, for 2 dives each day.
You can finish with us in the spring, summer or fall, or finish somewhere else that you may be vacationing or traveling.
If it is with us, we are not doing Open Water Tests in the winter months, so it would have to be before the end of Oct.
If you are wishing to complete the open water portion elsewhere, we'd be happy to refer you to another PADI shop that is qualified to complete your training.
