OPEN WATER CERTIFICATION CLASS

 

 

Our classes are PADI classes, which means they adhere to the training standards published by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors. The reality is that all instructors must meet the same standards for WHAT they teach. We’ve found the difference is in HOW it’s taught. Regardless of where you study, scuba education is divided up into three components:

Individual Study
Class Review / Pool Introduction of Skillset
Open Water Review of Skillset

 

We make the process simple and easy, and here’s our approach:

1.   YOUR SCUBA EDUCATION

Pick which way you’d like to study…. Online or through a course that can be downloaded onto a tablet, or simply order the books! This includes ALL of the educational materials you’ll need as well as the cost of your certification card. There's nothing else you need to buy to start learning!

 

 Education Package     $200     

2.  YOUR CLASSROOM REVIEW AND INTRODUCTION TO SCUBA SKILLS!

Take the time you need to complete the educational phase then let us know when you’re ready to move on to the next phase. This is the Class Review and Pool Instruction and is where you get introduced to the skills you'll need to be a confident and competent scuba diver!
This component includes a new name brand mask, fin and snorkel set that will be yours to keep.

 

Classroom Package     $200     

 

OR, IF YOU WANT TO REALLY GET READY TO DIVE....

You’ll still need to contact us for your Classroom time and Confined Water Pool lessons. In this package, though, you’ll get a new compass and new name-brand dive computer and a dive planning and buoyancy seminar to go with your education. You’ll also still get a new mask, fins and snorkel (all new too!). This equipment will be yours to keep forever and you’ll be ready to plan and conduct a dive. This additional $350.00 gear and education package typically costs around $700.00 at most brick and mortar stores.)

 

Classroom 2 Package     $550     

3.  YOUR VERY FIRST OPEN WATER DIVES!! (AFTER THIS YOU CAN CALL YOURSELF A SCUBA DIVER!)

Schedule your open water dives (you will need to do 4 open water dives (maximum 3 per day for training dives). Included in this price are the entry fees and gear rental for the open water site. At most brick and mortar stores, this portion of your training can cost as much as $400.00)

 

Dive Package     $200     

 

 

We can also arrange lodging for $99.00 per night at the open water site! We can chat about this during your scuba training!

As divers, we are firm believers in owning all of our own equipment. Most divers will eventually own their own equipment. It's more comfortable. It's safer. But you should, as a diver, have the option to select from a wider variety of price points and brand names than a typical brick and mortar store can offer. After your certification is complete we can still help you pursue your new passion! If you get an open water certification through Nocodivers, our online shopping resources can help you round out your own personal dive kit with up to 30% savings on regulators and BCD’s over what you’d pay virtually anywhere else. We will provide details on this part of our savings package during your class, pool and open water experience!

Advanced Open Water

  $450.00 (compares to approximately $600.00-$700 at most brick and mortar stores)

Once we’ve seen you through your Open Water Certification you’ll no doubt want to come back and learn more.  We’re always learning and it’s no surprise that many of our scuba family feel the same way.  When you’re ready to be an advanced diver, we offer a comprehensive package that meets the requirements for PADI open water and exceeds what most any brick and mortar store can offer.  The course includes:

 

All Educational Materials
Deep Adventure Dive
Peak Performance Buoyancy Clinic
Underwater Navigator Specialty Course

 

Altitude Adventure Dive
Night Adventure Dive
Nitrox Enriched Air Specialty Course
Equipment: SMB, Night diving light set. Lift Bag

 

If you’re going to be an advanced open water diver, you should have your own dive computer.  If you’re going to dive using Enriched Air (Nitrox) you should have your own dive computer.  This and the underwater compass are the only things not included in this course.  If you’ve done our “The Works” course, you’ll be ready for this course.  If not, we can help you get your own dive computer and compass for up to 30% off.  It’s not included in this course because if you took ”The Works” open water course, you’ll already have it!  Call for details on making yourself a truly advanced open water diver.  And yes, you’ll have to provide your own transportation lodging and food on the open water trip.  This course is done during a weekend adventure or on one of our Cozumel certification trips.  Call for details!
