Book now to enroll in the course, get your e-learning materials and start learning. We will schedule your knowledge review sessions, confined water and open water dives with one of our PADI Instructors.
Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health and fitness. Chronic health conditions, certain medications and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a physician before diving.
Avoid disappointment, download and review the Diver Medical form to ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course. Instructors and dive center staff are not physicians and should not be asked for medical advice; only medical professionals can give medical clearance to dive.
If you (or your physician) have questions about medical fitness to dive, contact the experts at Divers Alert Network (DAN).
Minimum age: 10
Divers certified between the ages of 10-14 earn a Junior Diver certification.
Junior Divers automatically become Scuba Divers at age 15.
Children eight or older can try scuba diving in a pool-like environment. Ask us about a Bubblemaker experience. Children who are comfortable in the water can participate in the PADI Seal Team program, a multi-day pool diving experience.
Are you ready for the next step? Become an Open Water Diver, you are just half way into it. Improve your buoyancy skills while you complete the two Confined and two Open water dives that you have left for the certification. You will be allow to dive all the way down to 18m.
If you don’t have the opportunity to dive for six months (or longer), you can quickly refresh the knowledge and skills you learned in Open Water with the PADI ReActivate® program. Your PADI certification never expires, but after a long period of inactivity, you may want to brush up on diving fundamentals and safety procedures.
