HOW TO BOOK YOUR OPEN WATER COURSE

Open Water Referral Students:
Students, from many agencies such as SSI, PADI, SDI, NAUI, IDEA, and PDIC, for example, who have completed all confined water (pool) sessions and all academic training with a certified SCUBA instructor within the last year will proceed to Open Water Training.  This program is normally conducted on two afternoons.  You will participate in a brief readiness assessment which will allow you to become familiar with your instructor, our equipment, and the environment. 

These students should book the “Referral Student” rate.  This will cover the 4 open water dives required to complete your certification.  Enhance your course experience by adding a 2 tank boat dive on our dive boat, the Maka Koa, for your second day of open water dives (open water dives 3 & 4) for an additional $99.00 plus tax.  Make it exclusive by adding a private dive master for an additional $150.00 plus tax per day (requires 2 days).
