Scuba Class

Get Open Water certified to dive up to 60 ft, for life!

#

Earning Open Water Diver certification shows that you met the course requirements.
Dive centers and resorts require proof of certification before they will rent scuba equipment, fill scuba cylinders or book dive excursions. As a PADI-certified open water diver, you’ll be trained to a maximum depth of 60 feet, and are qualified to dive in conditions as good as, or better than, those in which you trained. It’s just the beginning of a lifetime filled with dive adventures!

Classroom instruction held at Russell Landing Marina. Water instruction held at Kimbro Pool.  Open Water certification Saturday and Sunday, 8 a.m.–1 p.m. held at Sunnyside Beach in Steilacoom.

Classes are currently limited to 8 students and typically fill up 6-8 weeks in advance.
