PADI Open Water SCUBA Diver Course

Price: $499.99

scuba studentsWELCOME to SCUBA DIVING!

Dive Source is located in Oshawa and is Durhams's only PADI 5 Star IDC Scuba Facility.

Learning to Scuba Dive is as easy as 1-2-3.

  1. Sign up for the course here at Dive Source - Then go home and complete the dive theory portion online, at your own pace, using interactive PADI eLearning.

  2. Arrive for the Course - Which runs 4-5 sessions in a combination of classroom and pool... 

  3. Go diving on your Open Water Certification Dives... To finish your PADI Open Water Diver Certification you need to complete four certification dives in open water (Lake, River Ocean...), which are more of a reward than a test, as you are actually going scuba diving! We do ours in nearby Marmora, Ontario (no overnight accomodation needed). 

    > > Note: We bill these open water dives seperately as you have the option of doing your open water dives elsewhere... Like on a holiday down south, within one year of your course. This is called taking a Referral and we provide all documentation at NO CHARGE...or better yet, do them with us for only $99!

 Congratulations.. At this point you will be certified for life as a PADI OPEN WATER DIVER and your certification is good anywhere in the world.

   $499 COURSE PRICE INCLUDES:  Padi eLearning($200) + Classroom/Pool training & pool scuba gear rental ($199) + PADI eLearning crewpack ($100)
