Are you heading to a warmer climate and want to go diving? Instead of wasting time on your vacation getting certified you can do the necessary academics and pool sessions with us. Then you can head off to the warm water to finish your certification.
The PADI Open Water Diver Referral course consists of online academics and three confined water (pool) sessions.
Then we can refer you to an instructor at your vacation destination to finish the open water dives in warm tropical waters.
Completing your confined water and academics while still at home saves you from wasting precious vacation days stuck inside doing course work.
Getting signed up
You can check our current class schedule on the Open Water Diver page. Dates don’t work for you? Give us a call at (206) 842-1980 and we’ll see what we can do for you.
If our currently scheduled pool sessions do work, please complete the medical waiver here. All no’s? Great! Feel free to purchase this course online or stop by the shop to get signed up.
If you answered yes to any of the questions, please visit your doctor and get signed off for diving before submitting payment.
Then you need to sign up and complete the PADI Open Water eLearning course, before the first pool session. It takes about 8 hours to get through all the coursework.
We need to see you in the shop any time before the first pool session to have you try on equipment and fill out paperwork.
After that it’s just a matter of meeting us at the pool where you’ll get personal attention from our excellent instructors.
Any questions? Give us a call during business hours at (206) 842-1980 or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The thought of dipping below the surface at night seems mysterious, yet so alluring.
Although you’ve been scuba diving at a site many times before, at night you drop into a whole new world and watch it come to life under the glow of your dive light.
Headed somewhere warm and tropical for vacation? Enhance your trip and reduce your stress by learning the basics before you go! Learn how to size a mask, breathe from and clear a snorkel, proper finning technique to get you to where you want to go, effective methods for diving below the surface, and much much more.
Take the PADI Underwater Naturalist Specialty course and you’ll see new things, even on the most familiar scuba diving sites. Why?
The lure of the deep. There’s something exciting and mysterious about exploring deeper dive sites while scuba diving.
Sometimes it’s a wreck that attracts you below 18 metres/60 feet, and on wall dives it may be a giant fan or sponge.
