Please Give us a Call to register for your Open Water class!

Prior to the Pool / Classroom Weekend

You will need to try on your rental SCUBA equipment and purchase any snorkeling equipment you might require.

If you already own personal equipment we ask that you bring it in so we may ensure it is appropriate for cold water SCUBA diving.

These things can be done any day prior to your course during shop hours. We ask that you do this orientation at least one week in advance to ensure that the home study is completed.

There will also be some preliminary paperwork to fill out and medical release form that may need to be signed by a doctor prior to the pool sessions.

Be prepared to spend about 1.5 hours with us to cover all that is needed.

Rohnert Park

Classroom/ pool sessions Saturday and Sunday begin at 9:45am. Pool schedules vary throughout the year from morning sessions to afternoon sessions. We will confirm the meeting times and locations for your class with you. The pool/ classroom sessions are usually done by 5:00pm.

The ocean dives are conducted the following weekend on either the North Coast or in Monterey.

Prior to the pool and classroom weekend, an orientation session at Sonoma Coast Divers is required. The session takes approximately 1.5 hours; calling ahead is recommended, but not required.
Napa

Meets Saturday and Sunday from 9:00am to 4pm for the pool and classroom sessions.

The ocean dives are conducted the following weekend on the North Coast or in Monterey.

Before the pool work is done, an orientation session of approximately 1.5 hours at Sonoma Coast Divers is mandatory. The orientation session can be conducted anytime during store hours. Calling ahead to schedule your orientation is recommended, but not required.
















Ocean Dives will meet at the coast between 8am and 9am. You will do 2 dives per day and finish between 12 and 2 in the afternoon. Schedules may vary a bit depending on the instructor, the number of students, and the day's conditions. TBD Ocean Weekends will have the possibility of going to Monterey due to weather. There are many options when it comes to your Ocean Dives, please give us a call if you have questions!

Due to staffing and equipment logistics, you may change the dates of your class until three weeks prior to the class start. After that, a $50-$100 rescheduling or cancellation charge will be incurred. Beginning the Monday prior to your class, there are no refunds and no transfers; all tuition paid is forefit. We are always as flexible as possible, but we do often have long waitlists for classes and the week-of a class we can rarely fill last minute openings.

If you have any questions about the Open Water Diver Course schedule, please feel free to give us a call! (707)-586-0272.
