Ready to become a dive?  

This is where you start!


Diving is an adventurous and challenging lifestyle shared by millions of people worldwide.  Your PADI Open Water Course will consist of 3 phases:

1) Academics, 2) Water Skill Development and 3) Open Water Training.  


You may begin scuba diving your very first night of class!  The Saturday and Sunday following your last pool session, we will travel to a local open water training sight. There you will apply your new diving skills on 4 open water dives.  We are sure you will discover your diving education exciting, challenging, and most of all, fun!  


Your PADI Open Water Course is a 3 week program and meets Tuesday/Thursday or Monday/Wednesday evenings from 6:30 - 9:30 PM.


Scuba Center will provide you with state of the art diving equipment that is safe and comfortable to use, professional instruction and PADI Open Water Certification upon successful completion of the course.
