Choose Between Two Options

  • $199 for a PADI open-water certification course (a $408 value)
  • $20 for a Discover Scuba course (a $50 value)

The open-water diver certification course consists of three phases: classroom and home study to learn scuba basics, five confined water dives to exercise scuba basics, and four open-water dives to review skills and explore. Enrollment includes diving-equipment rental and course materials. The entire course is completed in 31 training hours, and students swim away as PADI-certified scuba divers.

Gigglin' Marlin Divers’ friendly yet surprisingly serious instructors guide students through the Discover Scuba Diving course from the safe depths of an indoor heated saltwater pool. A brief video or flip chart introduces divers to necessary techniques before they learn firsthand about buoyancy control, breathing underwater, and the funny faces that best benefit from wearing a swim mask.

Gigglin Marlin Divers and Swim School

As the indoor swimming arm of the Gigglin Marlin Divers and Swim School scuba-diving school—recently named Houston's best by the Houston Press—Gigglin Marlin Divers and Swim School entices water persons with a saltwater pool of titanic proportions. The facility's 75-foot long, up to 15-foot deep heated saltwater pool plays host to a crowded schedule of activities. The watery fun includes swim instruction for those less than 1 year old as well as adults. Regular times are also set aside for lap swimmers and indoor scuba sessions in which divers explore the saltwater pool's mysterious depths.
