* Most days will likely finish earlier than indicated. Class time ultimately is dictated by how quickly you learn the material.

Our on-site classroom is complete with unlimited purified water, flat screen Hi-Def television, comfortable recliner seating, and perhaps most importantly – quality air conditioning. The “classroom” portion of your class will include over 3 hours of educational video in addition to the textbook. Combined those two media will prepare you for your initial Knowledge Reviews – a series of questions following each of the five (5) chapters. Once each student has demonstrated thorough understanding of the materials the instructor will administer the 45 question quiz, followed by the 60 question exam, with each also providing additional study and review time with the instructor.

Our on-site pool reaches a maximum depth of 2 meters and functions as the ideal place to take your first breathes underwater. The environment is ideal for learning on many levels – comfortable atmosphere, zero distractions, and zero currents. Here your instructor will teach you over 20 skills which are paramount in your evolution as a SCUBA diver.

Finally the class will move to the ocean for your four (4) open water dives. Usually we start with our first two (2) dives as shore dives and complete dives 3 & 4 from the boat. Each dive you will demonstrate proficiency in various skills which you learned in the pool. After the fourth completed dive, provided you have already passed your written exam, you will have earned your SCUBA certification and are a new diver!
