Bluewater Scuba, a PADI Five-Star Instructor Development Center, helps aquatic adventurers achieve underwater prowess during the comprehensive diver-certification course. The staff of professional PADI instructors guide students through up to 8 classroom hours, up to 12 hours in the facility’s heated pool, and 16 hours watching Free Willy on loop. The staff and divers then migrate into the aquatic splendor of a local rock quarry for four certification dives, divvied between two days. At the beginning of each pool-training and certification dive, amphibious pupils are outfitted with rental buoyancy compensators, regulators, gauges, and tanks. Afterward, the newly certified divers receive PADI Open Water Diver certification cards, which represent lifetime PADI certification and VIP access to local pools’ deep ends.
