No prior experience with scuba diving is required.  A medical history form must be completed by all divers prior to participating in this activity.  You are responsible to make sure you are medically qualified to participate in this sport.  You may be able to get college credit for the Open Water Diver course.

What will you learn?

The PADI Open Water Diver course is, by far, the world's most popular scuba certification course. Millions of people have started diving as certified PADI Open Water Divers. Learning to scuba dive requires both knowledge development (facts, principles, concepts) and dive skills (techniques, methods).

The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

Knowledge Development Videos and quizzes (you have 3 teaching options)

Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills in a swimming pool

4 Open Water Dives, using the skills you’ve practiced and exploring the world under the waves!


Our Classroom Process  

Your PADI Crew Pack (student folder, Open Water Manual, Recreational Dive Tables and Training Logbook) will be mailed to you in advance of your arrival date. You will read the material and answer the Knowledge Review questions at the end of each module (5 total) and bring these with you to class.  

Your PADI Instructor will review the Knowledge Reviews with you, and together, you’ll watch and discuss the PADI Open Water Videos. These videos will reconfirm your open water manual information and also preview your pool skills training exercises.  After each video and discussion, you will take a short quiz.  At the end of the 5 videos, a final exam is given.

PADI registration and PADI permanent Certification Card is also included.

We are at the dive center 7 days a week for you, and we have PADI Instructors at Captain Hook's throughout the day to help with any questions you may have.
