Scubadiving is great, but the lesson was only 20 min in water, not much. There were other people in line waiting. I think full course might be better. This one is not 2 hours as promised. But the scudiving and instructor are good.

About This Deal

  • $218 for a two-day free-diving clinic ($399 value)
  • $299 for a PADI open-water diver certification course with equipment ($499 value)
  • $28 for for a Discover Scuba diving course ($50 value)

The open-water diver certification course consists of three phases: classroom and home study to learn scuba basics, confined water dives to exercise scuba basics, and open-water dives to review skills and explore. Enrollment includes the rental of BCD, regulator set, dive computer, tanks and any neoprene that may be needed. If they meet the skill requirements, students swim away as PADI-certified scuba divers.

Gigglin’ Marlin Divers’ instructors guide students through the Discover Scuba Diving course from the safe depths of an indoor heated saltwater pool. A brief video or flip chart introduces divers to necessary techniques before they learn firsthand about buoyancy control, breathing underwater, and the funny faces that best benefit from wearing a swim mask. Alternatively, students can sign up for a free-diving course, comprising a two-day clinic with equipment included.
