Open Water SCUBA Diver

open_water_trainThe Open Water Diver Course is the most popular course and the first opportunity to introduce you to the SCUBA diving lifestyle. You’ll know why the first time you take a breath underwater. Your course begins with an at home study program either traditional books or elearning followed by a classroom review session, pool session and your first Open Water dives.

All students are responsible for purchasing course materials or e learning access codes. Those who buy traditional course materials will attend a 3-4 hour
long classroom review before the pool instruction. For those who prefer e learning, a 2 and half hour long classroom review of e-learning information and dive tables is conducted prior to the pool instruction. Students must provide their own mask, fins, boots and snorkel. Basic Gear Packages that include these items start at $159 and the store staff or your Instructor can help you select the ones best suited to you.

Cave Excursions and its Professional SCUBA Instructors want your SCUBA diving experience to be extraordinary. Please review the Student Registration  and Medical Statement (NAUI, PADI, SDI) relevant to your specific certifying agency. Answering YES to any question on the medical statement doesn’t automatically disqualify you from diving. It only means there’s a condition your instructor needs to be aware of to insure your safety while SCUBA diving. If thought necessary your physician may need to sign the Physicians release portion of the medical statement prior to any in water instruction.
