Complete PADI Open Water Course Academics with academics, pool, and ocean/lake checkout dives
This product consists of the PADI Open Water Academics (online via workbook and video), all 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".
If you prefer to take the academic portion of the open water course online via PADI eLearning for a discounted $120 (MSRP $195), click here.
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 gloves)
Personal gear starts at approximately $180. 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. Cheap snorkeling gear simply will not do. We meet or beat internet pricing and offer a fit guarantee. If your mask doesn't fit, we will keep trying others until it does.
Be sure to allow yourself enough time before class to complete the independent study. It is several hours of study.
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. PADI eLearnings will receive a Docusign style form to complete before class.
