Completion of Open Water Class & Pool
You only need to show up at the store on Saturday and Sunday morning and leave the rest to us. We have transportation arranged to and from Dutch Springs. The diving accomodations have been designed for the diver's enjoyment at all levels. There are heated changing/restroom/shower facilities. We will bring a cooler full of beverages, but please pack a lunch.
The bus is scheduled to leave at 7am each day and should be back in NYC late in the afternoon. Please be on time so as to not keep your fellow divers waiting. The $395 fee* (payable when you sign up) includes all your training, transportation, entrance fees to the quarry, certification documents, tanks and weights.
Schedule: Dives are done locally May through October or available to complete on many of our trips.
Each student is responsible for making arrangements for all equipment except tanks and weights before the weekend. Students must try on the wetsuit before the dives but the rented equipment may be left at the store until the day of the dives. Students may apply the rental fees towards future equipment purchases. Ask about our rental purchase program!
