Successful completion of academic and confined water training results in eligibility to complete the four certification or "checkout dives". The checkout dives are generally shallow dives where you demonstrate your mastery of the skills you learned during confined water training. You can complete the certification dives with Blue Octopus Scuba in a local lake suitable for training or we offer trips with our instructors to exciting destinations. Four to five certification dives are required over at least two days to complete certification requirements. Once you've completed all three steps, you'll be a Certified PADI Open Water Diver which allows you to dive to 60 feet with a buddy!
