- $249 for an open-water Scuba-Diving Beginner Course at the Wayne YMCA (a $499 value)
This comprehensive scuba course outfits students with all necessary equipment—including an Open-Water Online E-Training kit, a weight belt, a slate, and a whistle—as well as major equipment rentals such as a regulator and a tank. Over the course of three two-hour classes, pupils get a deep understanding of diving in a safe pool environment and learn how to safely operate their equipment. This package alone does not confer a certification, as students must complete four additional open-water dives, which are not included here. View the full schedule.
