A Quick Overview of the Open Water Course

  • Step 1 - Academics. Before you get wet you need to learn basic diving concepts by meeting with the instructor and class members to review home study materials. There are two classroom sessions.
  • Step 2 - Pool Dives. In two pool sessions you learn how to assemble and use all the equipment discussed in Step 1. All of our pool training is done in local community pools.
  • Step 3 - Ocean Dives.You take everything you have learned in the first two steps and go diving! All your training dives are done from local dive charter boats here in Fort Lauderdale. No beach dives or lake dives! When you have completed four ocean dives you will receive your PADI Open Water scuba diving certification
