Class Work & Homework

Monday evenings from 6:30-9:30, $600. +HST. Each class consists of a lecture by one of our experienced instructors, followed by a practice session at the Zatzman Sportsplex pool to apply the skills discussed. Please indicate when registering if you will require transportation from the class to the practice so we can plan ahead to get everyone there.

Each student is provided with a Scuba Diving International Open Water Kit, which will include your SDI Open Water Manual. At the end of each chapter, students will find questions pertaining to the material and can record their responses to these questions within the answer manual. Each student’s responses will be checked by an instructor for accuracy.

The total cost of the SCUBA course is $ tax. This includes all curriculum materials and instruction, rental costs of dive equipment, and international certification. Students must, however purchase their own mask, snorkel, fins, boots, and de-fog. A deposit of $100. may be paid to put hold on a spot in the upcoming class; the remaining cost must be paid by the time the course begins.

Open Water Checkout Dive

At the end of our six week course, our instructors will take students to dive Nova Scotia’s coastline. The open water check outs will give students the chance to show that they understand how to complete exercises in the ocean as well as the pool.

Internationally-Recognized Diving Certification

On completion of the course, students will receive an Open Water Diving Certification issued by Scuba Diving International. This Certification is internationally recognized and will allow the card holder to dive recreationally around the world.

Safety is our top priority in every diving class we teach. Your safety always comes before profit, and we take the time to make sure you are comfortable with all the equipment before we go into the water.
