The good news is that how much you will spend learning to scuba dive with Harry’s Dive Shop is largely up to you. You have control over factors such as whether you want to take a private or group class, or where and how you complete your open-water training dives. All these factors have a direct bearing on how much you spend.
Our course fees cover all of the following:
- All in-water instruction.
- Use of tanks, regulators and BCs in the pool.
- Certification card processing following open-water training.
Additionally, our Open Water scuba course includes an attractive DVD, full color textbook, diver’s logbook and plastic dive chart in a convenient zippered bag. Student divers are required to use equipment from Harry’s Dive Shop until certification is obtained.
