Open Water

Open Water The allure of the ocean. It calls to all of us. Whether from the images in the movies and on television or from the seeds that were planted in our minds by pioneers like Jacques Cousteau, there’s something about the ocean that keeps bringing us back time and time again. Now you can experience this adventure first-hand by becoming a certified PADI Open Water Scuba Diver. Join us and experience what it’s like to be weightless and glide over the ocean’s bottom or to pause and gaze through the 15′ prop on the RMS Rhone in the BVI. To watch rays “fly” past you or watch the peculiar habits of the perch and catfish at a lake. This is scuba diving and there’s nothing else like it on earth.
