Q. What do I need for the first class?
A. For most classes You will view the PADI videos (DVDs), read the PADI textbook and complete the knowledge reviews at the end of each module. Both the books and the video are included in the course fee and the book is yours to keep. You will also need to complete a PADI student record file (including a medical statement). Discover Scuba is the exception-there are no study materials.
Q. Are private lessons available?
A. Yes! We arrange a great deal of private lessons for individuals and groups-just call and make arrangements-we can work around your schedule.
Q. Is there an age limit?
A. For Discover Scuba, you need only be 12 years old. Otherwise, to qualify for Open Water, Advanced Open Water & Rescue Diver you need to be at least 12 years old.
