Learn to Scuba Dive in three easy steps:

Step One – Academics

During this training portion, you will become familiar with basic diving principles and procedures. For example, you will learn the effects of pressure on your body, how to choose the right equipment, considerations for planning dives, and more. You will either complete the academic portion of your PADI Open Water Class at Sugar Land Dive Center with one of our experienced PADI Instructors or use PADI's Online Training to complete the academics on your own time, at your own pace.  

Step Two – Confined Water (Pool) Dives 

During this step, you will dive into our onsite, heated swimming pool and develop the basic scuba skills necessary to dive safely. You will learn how to set up your diving equipment, control your buoyancy, dive with a buddy, and have several other important and fun skills. The skills learned in our pool will prepare you for the open water dives in Step Three. You will also spend a short time in the classroom learning about additional diving opportunities, planning for dive travel, and more.

Step Three – Open Water Dives

Get excited to experience everything you have learned with the freedom of open water. You will be a certified diver as soon as your instructor approves your open water training dives. PADI Open Water Diver certification is recognized worldwide, so your diving experiences will be limitless.
