At Hampton Dive Center, our Enclosed Salt System Training Pool is private, sparkling clean, and 80 degrees year round. Top of the line rental equipment and small class sizes mean comfortable dives with personal attention from our experienced instructors.
Achieving the PADI open water diver certification is a three step process: Academics, pool dives, and open water dives. You will need to perform four open water dives over 2 days to become a certified diver. This certification is recognized world wide and never expires. Students need their own mask, snorkel, neoprene boots, and open heel scuba fins- these are included in the plus and premium packages.
