$179 for a PADI Basic Open-Water Diving Course ($254 Value)
In four weeknight or three weekend classes, instructors teach underwater skills to aspiring scuba divers aged 10 and older. Participants must provide their own masks, snorkels, and fins, which The Scuba Connection sells onsite. Students also have to purchase study materials and their PADI certification card at the end of the course.
The Scuba Connection
Husband-and-wife duo George and Sydney Fisch founded The Scuba Connection in 1996, later adding two very special instructors to their facility’s staff: their sons. Brothers Wayne and Jason Fisch helm the five-star PADI Instructor Development Center, where they guide aspiring dive teachers, as well as hobbyists, through all levels of scuba instruction. To further bulk up their school’s curriculum, the Fisches teach a handful of highly specialized courses that explore unique underwater interests, such as videography, wreck diving, and whale-call translation techniques. Technical class offerings include trimix and rebreathers.
