How it works

If you're not already certified we'll get you scheduled on our next PADI Open Water Scuba Diver Course. Upon satisfactory completion of that course we will then put you on the next PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course. It even keeps going after that. You'll get PADI Night Diver Certified, to prepare for dark and low visibility diving. The PADI Delayed Surface Marker Buoy Course will help you develop your underwater dexterity. Then we'll round off your remaining dives on Wednesday's and Saturday's diving with our Dive Club and staff. Best of all standard rental gear is included for the entire time!

Type Course Dives Dive Time*
Core Open Water 4 2 hours
Core Adv. Open Water 5 3 hours
Specialty Night Diver 3 2 hours
Specialty DSMB Diver 2 1 hour
Optional Specialty Drysuit Diver 2 1 hour
Experience Club Dives 6 6 hours
Totals 20 14 hours
*Dive times are approximate and will be at least 10 hours but likely much more. Dive times are weather and diver dependant.

What gear do I need?

As long as you have Mask, Snorkel, and Fins; we will provide the rest of the gear you need during training. Most students do prefer to purchase their own gear to use during training and in the future. Dry suits are especially important and we have several options available including heavy-duty commercial suits from BARE and Aqualung. Torpedo Rays supplies and services equipment for several commercial dive operations in Canada. We can help you with gear selection that will last in tough work environments.

NOTE:
All course date changes must be done prior to 7 days before the course. Any changes done within the week preceding the course, or not showing up to a course, will incur a $100 re-scheduling fee.
