During Scuba Shack's six-week Open Water Diver PADI-certification class, instructors lead novice swimmers through the academic and practical aspects of deep-water exploration. The weekly course renders success in underwater breathing and a chance to complete certification dives. Personal scuba gear is not included, so divers must bring their own or purchase a scuba-quality mask, snorkel, fins, and boots from Scuba Shack's onsite store, which offers a 100-day satisfaction guarantee on all products. In addition to the included online academic course, divers must purchase a PADI training logbook and Recreational Dive Planner (RDP) to track their progress and dives before completing dives in New England (about $37).
During the three-hour Discover Scuba Diving class, nautical explorers strap on provided gear and plunge into an indoor pool while guided by experienced instructors. Students learn basic scuba skills and safety rules as well as how to control diving depths, monitor air supply, and sing Air Supply’s “All Out of Love” through the respirator.

When Scuba Shack's founders attained their first certifications more than 34 years ago, they were frustrated with the inadequate teaching they received. As their dive careers continued, that dissatisfaction led them to create Scuba Shack, where their goal is to imbue every one of their lessons with tangible value for burgeoning divers. Their class schedule brims with PADI–certification courses, and introductory scuba classes help beginners to recite the first 100 decimals of pi before coming to the surface for air. The shack also has an onsite store overflowing with necessary gear such as snorkels, fins, and masks, required for many of the Scuba Shack's classes or group-travel dives.
