$279 for a Diver-Certification Class with Gear Rental ($575 Value)

The open-water certification course prepares divers for underwater explorations across four academic sessions, at least four confined-water practices, and seven open-water dives. Inside the classroom, future divers learn essential skills for diving, including how to prepare their equipment and how to navigate potentially dangerous situations. The confined-water sessions give divers a chance to test their classroom-taught skills in a safe environment. As the classes edge toward the finish line, divers take part in a series of open-water dives with their teachers that culminates with a certification test. All life-support equipment is provided for each class, and students receive their own scuba-quality mask and snorkel to keep. Click here for the upcoming 2013 schedule.
