OPEN WATER

About: Open Water Certification

It's the journey of a lifetime and it all starts here! If you want to learn to SCUBA dive this is the place. The fun part about this course is . . . well, just about all of it, because learning to dive is incredible.

 

You will breathe underwater for the first time (something you’ll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. During the course, you’ll do several pool dives and four ocean dives (over 2 days) at local Monterey dive sites under the supervision of your Wallin's Instructor.

If you are planning a trip, you can complete your classroom and pool sessions with Wallin's, and your final dives at your trip location. We provide your referral paperwork so you can do your final dives at the location of your choice with a partnering instructional facility.

Your tuition includes:

  • All of your class and pool instruction
  • Online training
  • Use of all rental gear in the pool
  • Maximum of 6 students per class in the pool
  • Maximum of 4 students per instructor in the ocean

We encourage you NOT to buy equipment before your class, so you can try out our awesome selection of demo gear. Something that sets us apart: we DO NOT require you to purchase a gear package in order to take our classes; however, if you choose to, we offer a student discount, as well as free use of rental gear for your final ocean dives ($120 value).

Open Water Certification Tuition: $495
Includes Online Training and Final Ocean Dives

Referral Only Tuition: $395
Includes Online Training. DOES NOT INCLUDE OCEAN DIVES. We will coordinate with the warm water instructor / dive center of your choice to facilitate the certification process.

A note on younger divers:
Children ages 12 and older can register for any regular group class. Children ages 10 & 11 can get certified, but it must be done via private instruction, as required by the diving association standards. Email us for info on private instruction for your child.
