Open Water SCUBA Training

Become a scuba diver, continue your scuba education or become a scuba diving professional and educate new divers.

Open Water Diver Course


Public Course

We conduct Public Open Water course on a regular schedule starting every four weeks. Learn how to scuba dive in a group of like-minded individuals brought together by their desire to explore the exciting world of Underwater.

Complete the home study followed by a single Knowledge Review session or complete all of the Academics online. Next we spend three evenings at the local pool practicing all required skills and by successful passing off the skills we continue on to the Open Water practice dives.

As part of the Open Water course each student will be provided rental equipment free of additional charges for the pool and Open Water sessions. Students are only required to provide their own personal items such as mask, snorkel and fins.

The public course is taught in two different formats. Meet once a week for four weeks and finish your open water dives on a weekend or meet every night and complete all training in just one week.

$300 per person, when is the course taught: evenings, starting at 5:30 PM; course length: five days

Private Course

This scheduling format is the most flexible. You decide when you want to come in for Academics Review, when to go to the Pool to learn necessary practical skills, when to go to Open Water to complete your certification. You will be the only student in class and receive one-on-one instruction. All necessary equipment will be provided for your course, free of any additional charges.

$500; when is the course taught: you choose, course length: minimum three days

Semi-Private Course, 2 to 4 people

Bring a buddy, save money and still choose your own schedule.

$400 per person; when is the course taught: you choose, course length: minimum four days

Group Course, 5+ people

If you have a large group of friends or coworkers, or you want to get your whole family certified, we can offer additional savings and personalized schedule via a Group Course.

$300 per person; when is the course taught: you choose, course length: minimum five days

Some limitations may apply depending on facilities and instructor availability.

Advanced Diver and Master Diver Development Programs

SDI Advanced Diver Development Program was created to make truly Advanced Divers. Under the old way of training a student could take an Advanced Diver course right after an Open Water course and only have a total of nine (9) dives, all under direct supervision of an instructor. SDI Advanced Diver Development program requires diver to have total of twenty five (25) dives and be certified in four different specialties. Master Diver is the highest non-professional diver certification and requires fifty (50) logged dives, four specialties and a Rescue Diver certification.

Bring proof of your experience and certification cards to Underwater Dynamics and we will be happy to reward all of your hard work by submitting for your Advanced or Master Scuba Diver certification. If you don't meet the prerequisites, inquire about our next scheduled specialty course or sign up for a private course and check the schedule of our dive club dives or dive travel schedule.
