The fun part about this course is...well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible. You breathe underwater for the first time (something you'll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. During the course, you'll make at least five pool dives and four dives at local dive sites under the supervision of your Instructor.
In the Open Water Diver course, you learn to use basic scuba gear including a dive computer, and standard accessories. The equipment you wear will be chosen by a Carolina Dive Locker Representative to ensure your comfort throughout the course.
We offer a variety of home-study materials for the Open Water Diver course - book and DVD package or a multimedia DVD as well as online learning options.
Contact Carolina Dive Locker to personalize the best study option for you!
The Open Water Diver materials cover what you need to know about basic scuba diving skills, terminology and safety procedures. For each concept you'll read a description and watch a video demonstration. Then you'll jump in the pool (or pool-like environment) to practice these skills with your instructor.
We offer the Open Water Diver course through both PADI and SSI (Scuba Schools International). Both are fantastic options for your certification and we have instructors who can teach through both agencies.
