Open Water Diver (Napa)

Learn to SCUBA dive with the professionals at Sonoma Coast Divers!

?We offer the SSI Open Water Certification Course, an internationally recognized diver certification program that we consider to be the finest in the world. We have been teaching in the Bay Area since 1978 (in our current location since 1998), and have an unequaled reputation for quality instruction. Our instructors teach courses that are fun, but also stress the techniques needed to become a safe and comfortable diver. If you are in good health and free from heart and lung problems, you can learn to SCUBA dive!

As the second largest certification agency, Scuba Schools International offers flexible and comprehensive instruction that will take you·all the way from Open Water Diver to Master Diver and beyond! As an SSI Platinum Facility, we can offer classes all the way from Discover Scuba through Instructor Trainer, the highest level of diving certification.

Our pool and ocean sessions use only the finest equipment available. We have a selection of high-end regulators, computers, and buoyancy compensating vests that will offer you the safest, most comfortable experience possible. We even have equipment specialized for the unique needs of women and children. Dive computers and weight integrated buoyancy compensators are used exclusively to make your training more comprehensive and your dives more enjoyable and safe.

Due to staffing and equipment logistics, there will be a $50 cancellation/transfer fee if you need to change class dates less 30 days prior to your first scheduled session, and a $150 fee if you cancel/transfer within one week of your first scheduled session. Once your class sessions have begun, there are no refunds or transfers of tuition paid. Please be certain of your dates before you enroll!

All divers under the age of 15 will be charged an additional $50 tuition fee. Due to dive standards for “minors”, SSI requires that we have additional dive personal in the pool and ocean for safety reasons. 

Once materials have been uploaded to your account that portion of your tuition remains non-refundable.
