Open Water Course

Our Open Water (SCUBA Certification) Course is for anyone who has a craving for adventure and a desire to explore the often hidden and beautiful realm of our world’s oceans. Our local coastal ecosystems are world-renowned for their beauty and diversity and Monterey’s waters are no different.

When finished, Open Water Divers are able to dive across the world and experience first-hand the wonders of the world’s oceans.

This course takes a total of four days. The bookwork is completed on your own time at home. All knowledge reviews in the book must be completed prior to your first day of class. 

Once the course work is completed, you will then move on to the in-water portion of the course. The first one to two days will be spent in the pool working on skills and teachings covered in the book as well as familiarization of scuba diving equipment. 

The next two days are then spent in the ocean completing four certification dives. During these dives you will be evaluated on skills such as gear assembly and replacement, ascending and descending, and underwater navigation. We are flexible with scheduling the 4 ocean dives and are able to work with your schedule.

All students are required to purchase their own mask and snorkel. Cannery Row Aquatics offers our students a discounted mask and snorkel package. 

Mask and Snorkel packages start at $100.00 plus tax.
