Open Water Diver Certification

San Carlos Beach OW Class

Course introduces students to the aquatic world and imparts the skills needed to safely perform open water dives with a certified buddy. The Open Water Certification is considered a major milestone in one's life and is a globally recognized achievement. Upon completion, Divers earn their initial PADI Open Water Diver Certification Card.

Course Cost: $500

Includes student training materials, tuition, and necessary rentals, except for personal snorkeling gear (Mask, Snorkel, Boots, Fins, Gloves). Discounts are available during training to the student diver for their personal snorkel gear through our partner dive shop, Ocean Sports Scuba and Free Diving of Lompoc, CA. Unlike some operations, there are no hidden fees or costs. 


Open Water Training is conducted over multiple days, which include evening academic sessions, pool sessions, and two days of ocean dives. Students must be prepared for long training days and, as always, mother nature gets a vote, so training may have schedule changes due to conditions.

Our training focuses on student proficiency and safety. We will not sacrifice standards for time. Upon completion, new divers will be certified to venture into the ocean with confidence.

Advanced Open Water Diver Certification

Middle Reef Point Lobos

Course expands the divers skill set and expose the diver to new conditions, which increases diver confidence and safety. Divers should enroll in their AOW class shortly after their OW certification to hone their skills and to expand their diving opportunities. Upon completion, Divers earn their PADI Advanced Open Water Certification Card.

Course Cost: $300

Includes student training materials and tuition; however, as certified divers, students are responsible for their own equipment. Additional equipment necessary for AOW training includes an underwater compass, dive computer, surface marker buoy (Safety Sausage), and, if a night dive is chosen, then the diver must procure a primary and backup dive light.

Divers will perform five training dives. A Deep Dive between 60 feet and 100 feet and a Navigation Dive with compass use are mandatory. The other three training dives may be selected after a discussion with the instructor. Training dives may include topics such as underwater photography, peak performance buoyancy, night diving, boat diving, drift diving, and even search and recovery
