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.
