The four-day course meets on Wednesday and Thursday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the classroom, where students learn the diving techniques and guidelines for subaquatic conduct. On Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. participants have an initial practice dive in the heated onsite pool, then navigate the limestone formations of Hudson Grotto, conveniently located on Scuba West's complex. Divers receive their PADI open-water certification following completion of the course. Equipment is included with this Groupon.
Scuba West's expert instructors impart the skills and certification needed for unsupervised journeys into the deep blue. Participants can earn their PADI open-water certifications at Scuba West’s full training facility, which features classrooms, an on-site heated pool, an open-water training site, and a retail area with equipment that can be rented or purchased. Students can further their water skills in courses and get their PADI open-water certification, which enables them to explore most bodies of water without a manatee chaperone.
