Open Water Scuba Diver/NITROX



Begin your underwater explorations by enrolling in a NAUI Scuba Diver class. This is our entry-level certification course where you will learn the fundamental knowledge and skills to safely dive in open water. More dive operations are offering a gas blending of a higher oxygen content, with this in mind, our entry level course now includes the nitrox certification.

Course Location: Classroom sessions are held at the dive shop, pool sessions are at the Roosevelt Swim Center, open water weekend is at Lake Pactola in the Black Hills. Classroom and Pool times are Sundays from 9AM to 4PM.

Typically, for November - April classes, we will schedule open water for some time once the water warms up. October may be dicey.

Minimum class size is 4.
