Are you ready to dive into the exciting world of scuba diving? The PADI Open Water Diver course is the perfect place to start! This comprehensive course consists of three parts: Knowledge Development, Confined Water Dives, and Open Water Dives.
During Knowledge Development, you'll learn everything you need to know to dive safely and confidently. You'll be thoroughly equipped for your underwater adventure, from principles and concepts to terminology. Then, during Confined Water Dives, you'll practice your skills in a pool or pool-like conditions. You'll even get to experience mini-dives that simulate the real thing!
Finally, you'll complete your training with four Open Water Dives at a local dive site. Once you've earned your PADI Open Water Diver certification, you'll be qualified to dive up to 18 meters/60 feet deep and in conditions that are as good as or better than those in which you trained.
At HDI, we offer a private Open Water Course that includes e-learning materials, confined and open water dives, ongoing instruction, and a lifetime of refresher courses. We also offer group classes with a maximum of four students, so you can choose the best option. Plus, if you're active duty military, a veteran, police, fire, EMS, or a university student, be sure to ask about our special discounts that are valid with ID.
Don't have your own wetsuit, mask, and fins? No problem! We offer rental gear for an additional fee. And if time allows, we'll even take you on extra dives outside of training for new experiences at no extra charge!

1.) Day listings are estimates; dive listings are minimums; courses may need to run longer to work on skills if necessary, and usually include other dives.
2.) We recommend that students purchase their own wetsuits, masks, and fins before class. However, they are available for rental for an additional fee.
3.) Boat trips are optional, permitting availability for additional fees.
4.) If time allows, we will do extra dives outside of training for new experiences at no additional charge on our part; however, training takes priority over extra experience dives.
