With group rates and flexible class schedules including day classes for all Boy Scout Troops, we make it easy to fit your PADI Openwater Certification into your schedule.
If you have a group that has already earned their Openwater Scuba Certification, we can help you complete the additional requirements to obtain the Merit Badge.
