The Ocean Pro Difference
Everyone hates hidden fees; including us. That's why our Open Water course includes everything you need. There are no hidden fees and no extra costs. All gear is included so you're good to go.
$50 Gift Certificate
Students who purchase any regularly priced mask, snorkel, and cold-water fins between registering for the Open Water and the course completion date will receive a $50 gift certificate to be used towards their next purchase. Offer is only valid when all items are purchased as a set and expires upon completion of the course.
Drysuit Specialty Included
Most Open Water Courses only contain 4 dives. But we offer 5 so you can complete your Drysuit Specialty certification. Some dive shops are still teaching in wetsuits, but it's just not fun being cold. All of our instructors and divemasters dive dry, so it only makes sense for us to teach you in a dry suit too. Dry suit specialties usually cost around $299 on top of your Open Water Diver course. However, because we know how important it is to your diving experience, we have included it in our price.
Free Equipment Rental
A gift from us to you - a free one day Equipment Rental to be used within 3 months of your course completion date. This rental includes all basic scuba gear (you provide your mask, snorkel and fins) for a day of diving. The value of this rental is over $100!
We keep our student to instructional staff ratios low to ensure you can progress a pace that is comfortable for you. We keep our numbers to a max of four students to one instructor or less.
Some of our divers prefer to finish off their courses in tropical destinations. Whether you are joining us on a warm water vacation or have a trip of your own planned - we can help you with a Referral Program to most destinations around the world!
If you prefer, you can join us for our Private Program- designed for people who are short on time! You complete your academic sessions on-line at your own pace and we work with you to design a pool and ocean schedule that meets your needs.

Once you have a taste for diving, you are going to want to get out in the water often! The Advanced Open Water Diver course helps you increase your confidence and build your scuba skills so you can become more comfortable in the water.
