We will conduct the first day of open water dives either Hudson Grotto located in Hudson, FL, Blue Grotto or Devil’s Den located in Williston, FL. These decisions are made with the entire class and depends on weather, availability and the class's preference.
We strive to conduct the second day of open water dives on a boat charter in the Gulf of Mexico. These dives are dependent on weather and boat charter availability. If a boat is unavailable, we will conduct the second day of diving at either Blue Grotto or Devil's Den.
The locations we visit most often include:
Blue Grotto or Devils Den: Natural springs located in Williston, FL (Typically Day 1's dives are conducted here.)
A local dive boat charter, where you will dive on an artificial reef in the Gulf of Mexico.
Boynton Beach FL, where you will dive on the east coast of Florida in the Atlantic Ocean.
Key Largo, FL where you will dive on the beautiful coral reefs just off the coast of the Florida Keys.
*Entrance fees, boat charter fees, or trip fees for the open water dives are not included in the price of the class.
For cancellations more than 48 hours before the first day of class: The online learning academics cannot be refunded, those are yours to keep. However, we can refund the rest of the course to you as store credit.
No refunds will be given for cancellations less than 48 hours before the first day of class or once the class has already started. There will be a $100 surcharge to reschedule.
Any students between 10 and 14 years old will require an additional dive master to be present, so there is a $100 surcharge for these students. These students will be certified as Junior Open Water Divers, 10 and 11 year olds have a depth limit of 40 feet with and 18 year old dive buddy, and 12, 13, and 14 year olds have a depth limit of 60 feet with an 18 year old dive buddy. Once student turns 15, they are no longer considered "junior" level, and can come into the store and update the certification.
Once academics, pool training and open water dives are successfully completed, a digital certification card will be issued. A Physical certification card will be handed out at our monthly Heroes Hangout!
