Open Water Referral
Have you completed your pool training elsewhere and are looking to complete your open water checkout dives in Pensacola FL?
The Open Water Referral is ideal for divers who want to start their diving education at home, and finish in the beautiful conditions of the Gulf Coast of Pensacola, FL. The program works by you completing the academics and confined water portions of the class at your local dive center, and finishing your dives with us!
By completing the theory portion of the scuba certification course before leaving on vacation, student divers eliminate the need to study on vacation. Students who study dive theory back home usually have a longer period of time to learn the information than those who try to cram studying into vacation hours. In general, referral students tend to have a better grasp of dive theory than those who study on vacation.
Traditional - Varies (depending upon current skills completed)
Depending upon how far you went with your referring dive shop, you will either need 1 or 2 days of diving with us to get your certification completed.
In the Open Water Diver Referral course, you learn to use basic scuba gear, including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, BCD and a tank. Remember there is no need to purchase any gear, even “personal items” at National Scuba.
