Ocean Sports provides all participants with the required scuba gear for the course.  It is encouraged that divers have their own mask, snorkel and fins.  However, if you do not own this snorkel equipment yet, we can provide it to you for a small rental fee of $15.00 for the weekend.  As the NAIT pool can be cool, we also recommend a wetsuit (available to rent for $25 if you do not have your own).  We will outfit you with this equipment during the Saturday morning session at the store.

Students are required to attend all pool sessions in order to successfully complete the skills.

In order to obtain your PADI Open Water Diver certification, you will need to finish 4 open water dives within 1 year of completing this course.  You can complete them with Ocean Sports or with any PADI dive shop across the world.

    "Ocean Sports is an incredible mix of business and compassion. This course starting with the e-learning, the priceless learning with Frank in the NAIT pool, the equipment purchase advise and scheduling with the ever so professional and patient Mandy, to the final open water dives with Mike, have given me one of the best and most precious experiences in my life. A truly wonderful course, that has opened a new world and an excitement to learn and advance further. Thank you Megan so much for your heart, and trust and thank you to all at Ocean Sports for the precious gift you have given. It is truly rare and I recommend and will spread the praise to all !!!!! Thanks guys!!"

    Great course!

    "For the person who wishes to start diving but finds schedules a challenge, I highly recommend the PADI online course. It is very informative, easy to navigate, and the best part was for myself was, I could do it at my own pace. The staff at Ocean were also so amazing!! The professionalism, the knowledge, the love and enthusiasm they all have for diving shone brightly as I took my first steps to being certified. Thank you Megan, Mike, Lisa and for being most patient with all my questions, Mandy. Huggs, and great thanks to my new family!!!"
