The classroom portion of the course is designed so you can learn at your own pace and when it's convenient for you. Complete the academics online or with us at A.B.Sea's Diving!
Develop and practice scuba skills in a pool or water with pool-like conditions under direct instructor supervision. As you learn new skills, you’ll build the abilities and confidence needed for diving in open water, such as in a lake or the ocean.
Get ready to experience everything you've learned with the freedom of open water. As soon as your open water training dives are approved by your instructor you will be certified as a PADI Open Water Diver, enabling you to embark on unforgettable adventures.
With A.B. Sea's you can complete the PADI Open Water Course in two weekends (four days) and a few evenings of home studying. It is modular in design; if you can't it on schedule you can pick up where you left off without having to repeat any lessons. The class begins with an evening two hour orientation session prior to the first weekend of training. During orientation, you will be given your textbook, a PADI Recreational Dive Planner, and an instructional DVD to view at home prior to the pool sessions. You will complete the required PADI administrative paperwork, introduced to the scuba equipment, and fitted for a wetsuit (so be sure to bring your swimsuit!)
