PADI Open Water Diver

Your scuba journey begins here with the Open Water Diver Course. To start your journey into the underwater world pick a Class/Pool date (sign-up online or in-store), pick up your course materials in store, and begin gaining the knowledge you will put into action on your chosen Class/Pool weekend. The classroom portion of the course begins with a certified PADI Instructor going over the knowledge reviews you completed at home before class. Along with knowledge development in the classroom your instructor will give you hands on experience with the gear you will be training in. Once you have the knowledge, we apply that knowledge in two safe confined water pool sessions. Once you have mastered the skills necessary for scuba diving in confined water, you can schedule your Open Water Training Dives where you will prove your mastery of these skills in real world conditions. Open Water Training Dives aren't all skills however, we do go for actual dives between the skills, so you get to see wildlife, and experience true scuba diving. Stillwater Diving's friendly and experienced PADI dive professionals will be there with you every step of the way.  


***There is about 8-10 hours of book work to be completed before the start of class. Please give yourself enough time with the material to help us ensure quality training and the best experience for you and your fellow students!***

Open Water Training Dive Schedule 

Course does NOT include: Mask, fins, snorkel, or boots. These pieces of equipment fitting properly are critical to your safety and enjoyment while scuba diving. Variation from person to person makes it very difficult to have rental gear that fits perfectly for everyone in a given class. For these reasons we invite you to stop by and ask our professional staff to help you find the best fit for you. 


At Stillwater Diving we understand not everyone learns or masters skills at the same speed. Our Open Water class is set up as a happy medium. If you need more time in the pool, or during Open Water Training dives, you are more than welcome to sign up for another scheduled date at no additional charge. 

If none of these dates work for you, we do offer Private classes, please contact us for availablity and pricing. 




If needed, download a paper version of the Medical Statement and Physcians Evalutation Form  for your doctor to sign before you start your course.
