This product consists of the PADI Open Water tuition for pool and open water dives.  Select your preferred dates from the drop down box at checkout. If you are unsure of the dates, you may choose "decide later".

Academics may be completed via book and video at no additional cost or online via PADI eLearning. ELearners take their exams online which avoids the need for an extra trip into the shop before the pool sessions. 

Each student will need their own personal gear (Mask, snorkel, fins, and booties and if you plan on doing your dives in the temperate water of Folsom Lake in the Winter/Spring, Monterey or Lake Tahoe, 3mm or 5mm gloves).  

Personal gear starts at approximately $225. It is highly recommended you do not borrow older gear or purchase it sight-unseen off the internet. Your personal gear is now part of your life support system and should be fitted by a dive professional. Student divers learning for the first time need properly fitted and in good working order personal gear for the greatest chance at success. Cheap or used snorkeling gear simply will not do. We meet or beat internet pricing and offer a fit guarantee. 

Be sure to allow yourself enough time before class to complete the independent study. It is several hours of of work.

Click here for the PADI medical questionnaire to make sure you have no "Yes" answers. If you do, you will need to print out the form and have a doctor sign you off before participating in any diving activities. If they are all "No" answers, you do not need to do anything. We will have a short form for you the day of class.
