- Academics: You must Purchase a PADI Open Water Crew-Pak which includes a student record file, dive table and log book. These are essential materials. There are Knowledge Reviews for every Module in the class text that need to be filled out and handed to the instructor for each class meeting.
- Equipment: You will need to provide your own basic snorkeling equipment (mask, fins, snorkel, booties,and gloves). If you purchase them from us, not only do we offer a student discount, but we provide a liberal trade-in policy and a 10% off discount. If any item does not fit or just isn’t working, we offer a flexible exchange program. We want you to have gear that is comfortable, safe, and works!
- Health: SCUBA Diving, though weightless and extremely relaxing, has physical limits. You will need to have your health commensurate with the exercises of SCUBA. We have enclosed a check list that you need to answer no to all the options. If you have to answer yes to any, you must go to your doctor for approval to enter this class. (PADI Medical Form)
- The PADI Open Water Class Structure: PADI’s Open Water SCUBA course is meant to be taught in a sequence, i.e., Module 1 must be completed before module 2. Refer to the contract (Contract). The PADI e-Learning/Private instruction offers the most flexibility, but the e-Learning must be completed before pool classes can be started. Please refer to the schedule on our calendar, for the sequence of group classes. If you have to miss a class, private instruction @ $50/hr can be used to catch up but it needs to be accomplished before the next module. In Group Instruction you are committed to the Open Ocean Dates.
