PADI Open Water Certification.
The Open Water Course consists of three main phases:
Classroom - Knowledge Development - Basic principles and theory of scuba diving
Pool Dives- To learn basic scuba skills
Open Water Dives - This is four dives done over a two day period. This can be done in a local quarry or on one of our schedule trips to Florida or the tropics.
This is generally taught in 5 classes. Students must be 10 years of age to be certified. Students will need their own mask, fins, snorkel and boots for the class (dive quality equipment - you can purchase this equipment at our shop). Tuition $279 (group class) plus Instructional Material $129
Advanced Underwater Diver:
Designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your Open Water Diver certification for divers 12 years and older. This course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. There are two required dives – Deep and Underwater Navigation – and you choose the other three, for a total of five dives. During the Deep Adventure Dive, you learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of deeper scuba diving. The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you better navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time. The other knowledge and skills you get vary with your interest and the adventures you have – photography, buoyancy control, fish identification, exploring wrecks and many more. Tuition: $250 + Instructional Materials: $59
Enriched Air Diver:
The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular specialty scuba course. Why? Because scuba diving with enriched air nitrox gives you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives. If staying down longer and getting back in the water sooner sounds appealing, then don’t hesitate to become an enriched air diver. Cost: $185
More Gift Ideas? How about gear? We have a wide variety of masks, snorkels, fins, wet suits, buoyancy control devices, dive computers, and other scuba accessories. Quite often, equipment needs to be fitted to the individual, so gift certificates are an easy way to ensure your gift will be exactly what your friend or family member needs.
While you can also find equipment on the web, there are four big differences in buying from Underwater World Scuba Center:
We provide service for what we sell.
You can see and touch what you are getting instead of guessing from a picture in an on-line web site
