Choosing a Dive Shop

This course requires both knowledge development and in-water training for certification. When you purchase PADI eLearning from our website, the cost covers the knowledge development portion only.
There is an additional cost to complete your certification with a PADI Instructor. The cost depends on class size, environment, and whether or not you need to rent equipment. Contact a PADI Dive Center or Resort for more information and pricing.
In addition to basic scuba gear, you will need a surface signaling device, such as an inflatable signal tube also known as a surface marker buoy or SMB. A spare parts kit is also a good idea. Your PADI Instructor or local dive center staff may suggest additional equipment depending on where your boat diving adventures take you.
