Open Water Certification

Congratulations on wanting to experience one of the coolest things you can try - scuba diving. The initial certification level for scuba diving is your "Open Water Certification". If you haven't reviewed the sign-up process, please visit our beginner scuba classes page or contact us with any questions. Below is the basic layout of the course:
  • 2 days of confined water (pool) training with an instructor
  • 2 days of open water training with an instructor.
We start your training in a shallow pool (shallow enough to stand) as you begin learning the skills necessary to scuba dive (mask clearing, regulator clearing, etc). Your instructor will explain, demonstrate and coach you through mastery of these various skills both above and below the surface. Once you have mastered the skills in shallow pool, we move into slightly deeper water (it's actually easier here) to work on skills like ascending, descending, equalizing & moving/swimming underwater. This is your first taste of scuba diving and one of our favorite classes to teach!Once you've completed your pool dives, go ahead and schedule your Open Water Dives in the quarry or off the coast.
    • Raleigh Scuba Diving provides your BCD, tanks, regulators, wetsuit & weights for training.
    • Student must provide their own personal gear (mask, fins, snorkel). Click here to schedule an appointment.
    • Plan on each session lasting around 4 hours, minus transporting your gear, setup, etc.
    • Confined water pool sessions are completed 1st before moving into open water (although there are a few caveats).
    • All dives (pool & open water) and instructor fees are covered under this fee.
    • Quarry or charter fees are extra ($25 for quarry, $100+ for charters).
