This beginner-level certification course is designed for those with little or no experience in scuba diving. At Scuba Ventures/Blue Water Park, our goal is to teach students the skills necessary to participate in open water dives in conditions similar to those they will experience during their training. Once certified, you will have the knowledge and skills to allow you to safely, comfortably, and confidently dive to a maximum of 60 feet without the direct supervision of a dive professional.
Our group classes require a total of six sessions. The date that you choose here will be the first of your sessions:
All Open Water students are required to have their own dive-quality mask, fins, snorkel, dive boots, and wetsuit. The discounted class fee of $575 applies only to students who opt to purchase this gear from Scuba Ventures. For those who choose to shop elsewhere, the full class fee of $650 will be applied.
To ensure that students have sufficient time to begin their academic coursework before getting in the water, the deadline to sign up for any of our classes is one week before the first session. If you have any questions or concerns regarding dive training, please call or come by Scuba Ventures BEFORE registering for a class. 205-822-2121, 610 Montgomery Highway, Vestavia Hills AL 35216
