Discover Scuba Dive: Underwater Experience … Following Pool Orientation
A PADI instructor conducts a brief orientation, followed by your first underwater experience in the pool. Then under the careful supervision of your instructor, you will go on an actual scuba dive in shallow water where you will safely experience the same sense of wonder and excitement shared every day by scuba divers throughout the world. Two-person minimum includes scuba equipment.

Open Water Certification
A complete open water certification course takes a minimum of three full days. The academic training material is available in a textbook or CD Rom format, which may be ordered through Vista Sea Sport in advance of your trip. The course consists of three phases: Academic training, confined water training (pool sessions) and open water training. The academic training is broken down into 5 separate modules, as are the pool sessions. There are four open water dives. This course has been structured so you may progress according to your individual ability. To complete the course in three days, prior to your arrival you must read the academic material and complete the knowledge reviews at the end of each module. Upon your arrival we with review this material with you, administer quizzes and a final exam. That will complete the first phase. We will advance to the confined water training where you will get hands on experience with scuba equipment. In a swimming pool under the supervision of your PADI instructor you will become familiar and then master the skills necessary to prepare you for your open water training. Only two open water dives are allowed in one day so the open water portion of your training will be completed over two days. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be awarded either the PADI open water diver card (minimum age 15 years) or the junior open water diver card (minimum age 12 years). Either credential attests to your completion of training and your ability to meet the standard requirements established by PADI.
