$188 for a PADI Open Water Diver Certification Course with Four Certification Dives ($375 Value)
Caribbean Dreams Diving’s PADI professional instructors guide new scuba divers through two phases of the PADI Open Water Diver certification course. To complete the program, divers will need to register for PADI’s eLearning, which costs an additional $130 (not included). This virtual classroom—which can be accessed from a computer, tablet, or smartphone—covers scuba essentials such as how pressure affects the body and how to plan dives, all while preparing students for quizzes on the subject matter. Divers then head over to the pool, where they are taught to assemble their diving gear and complete a pre-dive buddy safety check, before they enter the pool to breathe underwater for the first time. Instructors teach all necessary skills, such as how to clear water from a mask, equalize ears, and remove a leg cramp. After completing the five confined pool dives and all eLearning work, students and instructors lug their air tanks to a nearby body of water. In a controlled environment, students dive into real-world conditions during four open-water dives, which cap off the requirements for certification. Participants must be at least 12 years old, able to swim 200 metres, and able to tread water for 10 minutes.
Seasoned, affable, and PADI-certified scuba-diving instructors staff Caribbean Dreams Diving, which offers personalized programs for training would-be underwater explorers of all skill levels. In-pool dive training is available for every age bracket starting with 8-year-old bubblemakers. Once you’ve gained some experience, instructors can help you prepare for Open Water certification, sans floaties, at some of the area’s most beautiful and lucid bodies of water, including Forgetmenot Pond and Lake Minnewanka. They also teach the PADI Dive Master course and schedule refresher courses for experienced divers.
