PADI Open Water Certification Course

    Learn to dive with Gold Coast Scuba:

    Check out our awesome dive training site in the above video .

    A little homework, a couple pool sessions and open water check out dives are all that is needed to get you certified. The PADI Open Water certification is the entry level course. It certifies individuals for diving up to 60ft. deep.

    Part 1 - Academics (At your home)

    You need to be healthy to scuba dive. Please check page one of this medical statement and questionnaire: (If you answer Yes to any of the questions, please consult with a physician prior to participating in scuba diving, then print and take the form to your physician to fill out.) If you answer No to all of the questions, there is no need to print the form or consult with a physician.

    eLearning is now taught in 11 different languages:

    Complete the eLearning course ($174.00 : register online*).
      After eLearning you will be ready to do a pool session, check out dives and receive a PADI certification card. (PADI - Professional Association of Diving Instructors; the world’s leading scuba diving training organization.)                 

    *Register here at this specific link or at any PADI logo on the page:

    Please give yourself 8-10 hours to complete this online training.

    You can do it in one sitting, however I recommend you do a couple hours at a time.

    Part 2 - Water Training (Pool and Ocean)

    * Successful eLearning completion is required prior to attending the pool and ocean sessions.

    In order to give you the best training possible, Gold Coast Scuba has hired only the best instructors:

    Cost:  Initial briefing and equipment set up, pool training, open water training (2 days), log book, use of all necessary gear (including tanks, BCD, regulator, weights, wetsuit, mask, fins, snorkel, and dive flag), boat trip, and Certification card:

    $379.00 for one student

    $269.00 each for two

    $219.00 each for three or more

    The only things extra you'll need are transportation, bathing suit, sunscreen, towel, lunch money, tip for the Instructor, tip for the boat crew on Sunday, and meter money at the beach.  Sign up for eLearning, RSVP for the water work and The balance is due on the start date.

    There is a $50 - $100 rescheduling fee (amount is determined by how many other students are in the class you signed up for).  Fee is charged when we are given less than 24 hrs. notice.

    We will provide all the equipment you need for training; and we will give you great discounts (10%) off anything you decide to purchase.


    eLearning at your leisure on your own. Please give yourself enough time (8-10 hours) to get it done.  You can not start any water training until the eLearning course is completed.

    Please email [masked] or call [masked]  with any questions or concerns. We're open every day. M-F 10-7, Saturday and Sunday 8-7.

    Be safe and have fun!
