OCEAN PACIFIC

OPEN WATER DIVING COURSE

REGISTRATION FILLS UP QUICKLY

our scuba classes run like this:

 

You do the online course, which you get from us. The online course is done at your own speed but we require you to complete the first 3 chapters before coming into the pool. The final 2 chapters need to be completed before coming into the lake.

 

SATURDAY

1:30pm Verify paperwork is done and Q & A session about scuba.

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.

So from here, you are either done with 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 online course you need to have that done before the open water (lake) portion of the class.

Open Water Testing


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, 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.

Complete cost $799.99+tax
*$255.00 Deposit Required
Gives you – online course, classroom time, pool classes+lake classes, equipment for the pool+lake time, logbook, PIC – card, and instructor.
 
The open water done with Ocean Pacific will be 2 days in the pool. Then 2 days in the lake, for 2 dives each day.
 
If we did do it on the BC Coast it would run over 3 days and cost an additional $300.00 - $450.00 per person for a chartered boat dive and accommodations.

Important Info

If you have your own gear and you plan to use it for the course you must bring it to us to be inspected a couple of days before the class starts. Because of our insurance, we must make sure it is up to our standards before any use in the water. This work could cost you.

 

If you are taking your Open Water Dives with Ocean Pacific And can not make the one that is
scheduled you can either wait for the next one or you can hire our instructor(s) at a rate of
$185.00 a day privately.
