Whether you are a first-time scuba diver, becoming a certified diver, adding to your diving abilities, or becoming a dive professional, Salisbury Scuba has the course right for you! Check out our courses below.


Open Water Certification

Learn to dive in three easy steps! This entry-level certification course involves eLearning, in-water skill-development sessions, and four open-water training dives. 

Academic requirements can be completed at your own pace through online eLearning. Once eLearning is mastered, the next step is to complete your pool sessions under the supervision of an Instructor. Finally, you will apply what you learned during your academic and skill-development sessions during four open water dives. Open water dives typically occur in the local quarry. Each student must have their own mask, fins, snorkel, boots, signal tube, tank light, and log book. Wetsuits can be rented for $35 for the whole class. 

This is a lifetime certification that will allow you to dive up to 60 feet anywhere in the world!
