Open Water Classes

Classes are held on both Saturdays & Sundays, and are completed in two weekends. We use pools located in Alameda. Classes are scheduled from 7:30 to 4:00, both days. There is about 3 hours of academics in the classroom, and 4-5 hours in the pool, both days. We suggest bringing a lunch, and snacks for break times. Usually the following weekend we go to Monterey for our open water dives, that weekend is chosen by the Instructor and students.

Cost of Class is $449.00
