Complete your certification in one weekend!

We now offer the chance for you to earn your Open Water Certification in just one 3-day weekend (course typically requires two weekends) with a specially priced hybrid course!

Cost: $775 per student - includes eLearning cost*, entries to Lake Phoenix, air fills, and gear (except fins, boots, mask, & snorkel)

The E-Learning portion of the course is followed by three days (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) at Lake Phoenix to complete the certification. Students should be very comfortable in the water since the entire class will be completed at Lake Phoenix.
