 Open Water Scuba Diver Training:  
SDI Open Water Scuba Diver Course only $585
All-inclusive, no gimmicks

The open water course is divided into three sections:
Knowledge development (classroom), Skill development and ‘mastery’ (pool dives), and open water check-out dives.

Knowledge Development
 - In the classroom portion, we will review the book and knowledge reviews in the Open Water diver manual, provide enhanced explanation / information, and provide an explanation of the equipment and its use.  The classroom consists of two (2) weekday evenings held at Coral Edge Adventures. 
 - eLearning is also available for this course.  The online portion allows you to complete 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. 
 - Referral is also an option where you would complete your classroom and pool sessions with CEA, then complete your open water dives with a different company such as if you were on vacation.

Skill Development
 - Confined Water (pool) training is held at the Freedom Aquatic Center in Manassas.  Each student will work with a CEA Professional Instructor and Divemaster in completing your in-water skill-development training.  You will review the equipment and its use, and learn the fundamental skills that every diver needs to know for safe diving, while having fun at the same time!  The confined water dives consists of two (2) weekend sessions.

Open Water Checkout Dives
 - Open Water training is held at a variety of locations depending on season, weather and water quality.  Our closest location is Millbrook Quarry off Rt. 55 near Haymarket.  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 sessions.  *4 total open water dives are to be completed and no more than 3 open water dives per day.

SDI Open Water course at Coral Edge Adventures is $585.00, and PADI Open Water course at Coral Edge Adventures is $585.00.
Coral Edge Adventures provides tanks, weights/weight belts, regulators, computer/gauge, BCD, wetsuit and hood for each student to use during their confined and open water training dives.

Options to travel to Millbrook Quarry, Blue Stone, Dutch Springs and Lake Phoenix.  Inquire as to travel dates and pricing.

eLearning Options
 - Coral Edge Adventures offers our SDI and PADI Open Water course via classroom or eLearning (online).  The SDI Open Water course price is $585 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 $585 and will include all rental gear/equipment used in their confined and open water training dives.

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.
