The Deal

  • $249 for a four-day PADI open-water-certification course in San Pedro (a $500 value)

Over two consecutive weekends, certified dive instructors teach students the basic abilities, equipment use, and safety protocols for exploring open waters with their buddy. On the first Saturday and Sunday, classes convene at the Pacific Wilderness indoor location, with students spending four hours studying course materials and four hours practicing underwater breathing in a heated pool within the indoor training facility built specifically for the store. The second weekend, divers enjoy two four-hour excursions to San Pedro’s local beaches. While in the open water, local aquatic life abounds, with groups frequently sighting eels, bat rays, and sea lions.

All scuba gear is included. Students can purchase or rent gear for snorkeling or other purposes for an additional fee.

Pacific Wilderness

Jacques Cousteau had barely slipped the first scuba tank off his back when Pacific Wilderness opened its doors in 1953. Since then, the shop’s staffers have used their collective expertise to outfit divers & professionals with high-quality equipment from brands including Aqualung, Scubapro, Oceanic, Seaquest, and Zeagle.

They also teach PADI scuba-certification courses that range from basic open-water training to Instructor Training. Lessons start at the on-land facility's heated pool but progress to weekend-long dives in the waters of Redondo Beach. The shop's scuba-philes also arrange journeys to exotic locales such as the Sipadan Water Village Resort in Malaysia and the secret depths of Camp David's presidential bathtub.
