Open Water/ Advanced Combo

Class Description

Take advantage of the $150 savings by combining our two most popular classes. The combo includes training materials, pool session and 10 Open Water dives. The Open Water class is a three day program. Typical schedules are Friday-Sunday or we also offer weekend only classes. The Advanced Open Water class also takes three days and will start after completion of the Open Water class. The dives for the Advanced class can be Monday-Wednesday or Friday to Sunday.

After completion of the classes we process your certification card on line so you can start diving right away. You will also be qualified to take  numerous specialty classes like wreck diver and underwater photographer.
All students that graduate will receive a $25 credit towards the next class.

Prerequisites: You must complete all academic work either on line or with your text book prior to starting the classes. There is an orientation for the Open Water class that is held the day before your start date. If you can not attend this orientation please let your instructor know to make special arrangements
