$149 for an SDI Open Water Scuba Diver Certification Course ($329 Value)

The course includes the following:

  • Classroom sessions, pool sessions, and open-water dives
  • Textbook, worksheets, record, certification registration, and a scuba-diver certification card
  • Use of tanks, regulators, and buoyancy compensators

After classroom sessions cover the theory behind diving, certified instructors let small groups of students aged 10 and older get their fins wet in pool-based practice sessions before doing the real thing in open-water dives. Students must provide their own masks, fins, snorkel, weight belt, and weights. They offer evening and weekend classes. See the calendar for upcoming dates.

Please note that the open-water dives will take place at Crystal River.

Capt. Pete’s Diving Outfitters

To say that Captain Peter Williamson has been a scuba fanatic his whole life is somewhat untrue—he lived six whole years before even discovering what scuba diving was. A fan of the sport since the ripe old age of six and an avid diver since the age of 12, Captain Pete has attained three teaching certifications and a USCG 50-ton master’s license to captain a dive boat. When he’s not exploring coral or unpopular Atari game cartridges at the bottom of the ocean, he slings gear from all the major producers of scuba equipment in his dive shop.
