All around experts. Great instruction ! Bring a lunch for pool day!! Remember its training for Safety. There are some additional costs but the price is well worth the adventure .. This is the tip of the Iceberg to a whole new world. First day we saw many fish and the second day we saw a Gray Whale (while on the boat) I got the Groupon for 249.00 and it is now down to 199.00. Do it!!!!

What You'll Get

Scuba diving has allowed humans to explore uncharted terrain and discover which of its majestic wildlife is delicious. Dive in to this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $199 for a semiprivate PADI Open Water Diver certification course (a $575 value)
  • $299 for a semiprivate PADI Open Water Diver certification course and two underwater scooter dives (a $1,025 value)

Beach Cities Scuba’s semiprivate Open Water Diver course is imparted over the course of four days, which can be tailored to fit the needs of each student. After a brief Wednesday-night orientation, the first weekend starts with a classroom session, which covers the basics of equipment usage and quizzes students on the favorite colors of all known fish before taking to the safe confines of a pool for five pool dives. Four subsequent dives take place in the open ocean, giving each student the chance to dive off the edge of a boat or from the beach.

Newly certified students can strut their subaqueous stuff during two dives aided by an underwater scooter. Students must provide their own mask, snorkel, logbook, glove, and fins, which can be purchased at a discount through Beach Cities Scuba’s store for up to $165 in savings; all training materials are theirs to keep. Textbooks and materials are not included and are available for an additional $70, which will be waived if mask, snorkel, logbook, glove, booties and fins are purchased on site.
