You will be required to invest in your own personal Surface Support and Propulsion System, which consists of Mask, Snorkel, Diving Fins, and Boots. (Students receive a 10% discount, if purchased at Aqua Adventures). Your Surface Support and Propulsion System will typically range between $150 and $300 depending on the quality you select and your budget, with an option to exchange an item if there are problems with fit. It is vital you learn to dive with properly fitted equipment.
In addition to the classroom & pool sessions, you will be required to complete "Open Water Certification" dives before receiving certification. These dives can be done with us at Dutch Springs over a weekend, on any of our dive trips, or at a resort destination of your choice. The cost for each option varies. Please contact us for details and help in deciding which is right for you.
