Coral Edge Adventures offers our SDI and PADI Open Water course via classroom or eLearning (online). The SDI Open Water course price is $390 per student and you can purchase your online code here at our shop. The PADI online course is paid directly to PADI and is not included in
the charge by Coral Edge Adventures. The remaining course price for
each student who has taken the online PADI eLearning class is dropped to
$350 and will include all rental gear/equipment used in their confined
and open water training dives.
The online portion allows you to compete the Knowledge Development at your own pace, in the convenience of your home or office. Once completed you will need to contact us to schedule your final quiz/exam and then schedule your confined (pool) and open water (quarry) dives.
Confined Water (pool) training is held at the Freedom Aquatic Center. Each student will work with a CEA Proffesional Instructor and Divemaster in completing your in-water skill-development training. You will learn the fundamental skills that every diver needs to know, while having fun at the same time! The confined water dives consists of two (2) weekend mornings.
Open Water (quarry) training is held locally at Millbrook Quarry. Each student will be under the supervision of Coral Edge Adventures Professional Instructors and Divemasters. At the quarry you will apply what you have learned during your classroom and pool sessions, while also learning practical lessons that can only be gained through real-world experience in open water. The Open Water dives consist of two (2) weekend mornings.
Important: Each student will need to complete a Medical Waiver
prior to class. We strongly recommend that you complete this waiver in
advance as any questions answered "Yes" to will require a doctor's
approval before you will be allowed to enter the water for training.
