Learn to Dive!
At Hampton Dive Center, we have the facilities to complete your training locally from start to finish. Our private salt water pool is heated to 82 degrees and located right at our store in Riverhead. We also have a private Open Water training facility, Hampton Springs, located just 10 minutes from the store. This fresh water dive site enables us to complete open water dives no matter what the weather -current free, boat free and visibility ranges from 15-40ft!
Starting at the age of 10*, students can receive a lifetime PADI Open Water certification, accepted globally. Students must be fit for scuba diving, see Medical Statement for details.
First, you will need to complete approximately 12 hours of academics at home. Second, you will learn all the required skills to become a certified diver in the pool by a PADI Professional. The last step is Open Water dives, which will take place over two days at our private training facility called Hampton Springs, located just 10 minutes from the store.
