Basic Open Water

Basic Open Water is the beginning course for Scuba diving training, and is the first step towards exploring the underwater world.  This forty hour course is designed to safely provide the knowledge, technique, and experience needed to become a safe, and independent diver. We provide a high level of instruction, going above what PADI requires to prepare you for diving in the Pacific Northwest.

The cost of the class is $410, which includes all educational materials, as well as all equipment needed for the pool and for Open Water; students must have their own Mask, Fins, and Snorkels for the Open Water Weekend.  The mask, fins, and snorkels will be provided throughout the pool sessions, so students can find and use the equipment that fits them prior to purchasing it.  Personal costs such as gas, food, accommodation, and two air fills (approx. $12) for the Open Water weekend are not included. We also offer Referral Training, which includes all of your educational materials, as well as equipment for the pool, for $325. The Referral paperwork will be given to you when you complete the required classroom and pool work, for you to present to your certifying instructor.

The class size is limited to 10 people, and is based on a first-come, first- served basis.  A non-refundable deposit of $150 is required to secure your enrollment in a class. Students must be at least 12 years old (dependent on instructor discretion), and able to swim and support themselves comfortably in the water.

Private Instruction:

We offer private instruction if you are interested in that based on learning style or scheduling conflicts.  Private lessons are scheduled one on one with your instructor, and can be completed in an accelerated timeline.  The cost is $450 for private referral, and $600 for the complete course with Open Water dives. Please contact the shop if you are interested in setting up a private course.
