Become a certified Open Water Diver!

Throughout the course, you'll learn fundamentals of scuba diving, including dive equipment and techniques. You will also earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification that is recognized worldwide. You earn this rating by completing five pool dives and knowledge development sessions and by making four open water (ocean or lake) dives.

Merit Badge Requirement

Successful completion of Open Water Diver Certification is a requirement for the Boy Scouts' Scuba Diving Merit Badge. We have a merit badge counselor on-staff (registered with and approved by the Boy Scouts of America), who can sign-off on merit badge requirements.
