* First Session: The PADI Discover Scuba Diving Course is the first lesson. It takes 2-3 hours. The maximum depth for this dive is 40 ft. No reading or advanced preparation is needed. This dive is the First Open Water dive of the PADI course of study. If you decide to continue, we provide you the books for the full course for $50 (applied toward total cost of certification). We also lend you a video lesson ($30 refundable deposit). The video ($35) or a DVD version ($40) are also available for sale.
* Second Session: This session generally begins at 9:00 am and lasts 3-5 hours. It consists of an academic session followed by an in-the-water session covering skills needed during your open water dives. This will be your longest session. Before coming to class, you must read chapters 1-3 of the written material and complete the review questions at the end of each chapter. You should also review lessons 1-3 on the Video. We will start with a quiz on the three chapters. The "confined water" modules 1-3 follows the academic lesson. You will be doing a 200 yard swim or a 300 yard snorkel and a 10 minute float as part of these modules. Bring your lunch or purchase one on the beach.
Time permitting, you will complete your second Open Water Dive the same day. Or we can schedule your second session around your vacation plans.
