Choose Between Two Options
- $149 for an Open Water Scuba Certification course (a $330 total value), which includes academic training (a $130 value), pool training (a $100 value), and open-water certified testing (a $100 value).
- $20 for a Discover Scuba package (a $40 value)
The Discover Scuba package introduces nascent divers to the water via a one-hour class that kicks off with dry-land instruction covering the essentials of scuba, such as breathing and communication underwater. Under the eagle eyes of their instructors certified by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors, the students then practice their newly minted skills with a dive in the 4-foot pool.
Alternatively, the open-water scuba certification expands the know-how of more seasoned aquanauts. Certified instructors guide pupils through six to eight hours of academic training and 24 skill circuits in the pool to prepare for their four one-hour open-water testing sessions, offered on various dates. Upon completion, divers receive a life-long certification to enjoy the underwater world.
In the 11 years since teaching their first students the art of diving, TD Scuba’s crew of instructors certified by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors have certified and imparted their passion for scuba upon more than 2,000 divers of all ages. The team leads courses, from Discover Scuba classes for beginners to advanced sessions such as an underwater digital-photography course centered around capturing a sea cucumber's good side on film. Along with onsite instruction, the staff helps divers acquire real-life experience via numerous dive trips scheduled throughout the year to local hotspots such as Beaver Lake as well as excursions to far-flung locales such as Cozumel. They further prepare their patrons for underwater excursions with a host of equipment and gear available for rent or purchase.
