- I WANT TO SCUBA DIVE, WHICH CLASS SHOULD I TAKE?
To be a PADI certified diver you must complete the Open Water course. This is the first level of scuba certification and allows you to dive anywhere in the world and it never expires!
- HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR CLASS?
In-store – Online – Over the Phone
Come see us or call into any one of our six western Washington locations (Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia, Edmonds, Federal Way, and Bellevue) to connect with one of our team members. You can also visit our online calendar to browse through our up-to-date selection of PADI courses.
- HOW MUCH DO CLASSES COST?
Class cost depends on the course. Our beginning open water course tuition retails for $299.99. That price does include the required learning materials (PADI Crew Pak), but not the required personal gear. The learning materials can be a PADI crewpak or PADI e-Learning course. Personal gear is considered mask, fins, snorkel, boots, and gloves.
Our All Inclusive Open Water Package is everything needed to become a PADI certified scuba diver.
