Students then spend one hour in the pool learning how to operate the equipment and explore submerged terrain. Students must bring their own bathing suit and towel.
The PADI open-water diver course includes an eLearning course, pool dives done over two days, and four open-water dives done over two days, and leads to receiving PADI certification.

Students must complete the previous level before advancing. They can take the course at their own pace; see the schedule for upcoming dives.
AquaSub Scuba Diving Centre
At Aqua SubScuba Diving Centre, students train with the very same PADI-certified professionals who introduced Survivorman's Les Stroud to diving. When the team isn't spotting the famed survivalist during television shoots, they guide students to diving mastery at their own five-star development centre and local dive sites. Their introductory lessons begin with orientation sessions to ensure that students understand underwater safety guidelines, hand mations, and dolphin turn signals. They also lead pupils toward PADI certification with open-water dives and preparatory electronic courses. The staff can also offer referrals for open-water dives at optimal sites such as local spots or the underwater coffee shop used in the movie Finding Nemo.
For students more interested in above-water adventures, Aqua SubScuba Diving Centre also offers stand up paddle board rentals, sales, and lessons for all ability levels. Led by Paddle Canada certified instructors, lessons take place on Lake Wilcox in Richmond Hill, Scarborough Bluffs Beach, and on Georgian Bay in Collingwood.
