Open Water Diver

You Can Become an Open Water Diver in 3 Easy Steps:

Digital Diving


Start the certification process by coming into Dolphin Dive Center and signing up for our Open Water Course. We teach Open Water the first weekend of EVERY month. When you sign up and make the first payment of $395 you will receive an email with your online training materials. You will need to complete the online training materials before your classroom/pool sessions.



Step 2 involves your classroom and pool instruction over the course of two days (Saturday and Sunday). You will start out both Saturday and Sunday from 1pm – 4pm at Dolphin Dive Center in our classroom. After the classroom portion you will head to the pool and learn how to scuba dive! You will be in the pool on both Saturday and Sunday from 6:30pm-9:30pm. The classroom/pool sessions of the Open Water Course are held the first weekend of EVERY month.
