If you’ve always wanted to take scuba diving lessons, experience unparalleled adventure, and see the world beneath the waves, this is where it starts! Get your scuba diving certification with the Open Water Diver course – the world’s most popular and widely recognized scuba course. Millions of people have learned to scuba dive and gone on to discover the wonders of the aquatic world with this certification.

To enroll in a SSI Open Water Diver course you must be at least 15 years old, have adequate swimming skills, and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with scuba diving is required.  A Junior Open Water Diver program is available for kids 10 to 14 years of age and kids can attend any of our scheduled confined water/pool classes, however the final Openwater portion of the class must  be conducted through private instruction. Please call the shop for additional requirements and scheduling options.

Here at Dolphin, the course can be done in as a little as 2 weeks! The class is broken into 2 parts.

Part 1 is home study (digital study materials should to be done before the class meets), class, and pool sessions.
  • Weeknight classes start at 6:30 pm and go until about 10 pm. Class will meet two nights a week for two weeks. (4 class/pool sessions)
  • Weekend classes are from 9 am to about 4 pm normally but if classes fill up we will do a class from 8 am to 3 pm and one from 11 am to 6 pm.

Part 2 is the 4 Open Water dives done over 2 days. There are 3 venues for the dives varying with conditions and time of year. You must complete parts 1 and 2 to get certified.

Costs are shown in sections: Tuition, Academic Materials, Required Equipment and Rentals. Choosing Part 1 and Part 2 above will pay your Tuition and reserve your class dates. You will need to purchase your class materials before class to complete the required home study.

Please come by the store or follow the links on this page to get the online class materials.

Required Equipment: You will need to own your own Mask, Snorkel, Fins, Neoprene Boots, Underwater Compass, Whistle, and Alternate Air Source Retainer. We have a wide selection of equipment with great prices with student and package discounts. Expect to pay from $150 to $300 for a set-up.

Scuba Equipment needed for Open Water Dives is available for Rental or Purchase: you will need to have a Regulator with Computer, Buoyancy Compensator, Tanks (2 for Ocean, 4 for lake), Wetsuit, Hood, Gloves, and Weight.
