We offer the PADI Open Water SCUBA Course with two different schedule formats. The Weeknight Format is a two week class consisting of eight classroom/pool sessions (four per week), and ocean dives on the final weekend of the class. The ocean dives consist of four SCUBA dives and one snorkeling dive (optional).
The Weekend Accelerated Format is the exact same course as our regular format except that it is done in only two weekends! This two-weekend course consists of all the class and pool sessions in the first weekend and ocean dives on the second weekend.
