Open Water Scuba

Dive Open Water

While you may be interested in PADI Scuba Diving or SSI Scuba School B.S.D. does offer both types of certification.  Gary Gardner specializes in Open Water, believing in a diverse first experience underwater needs and should be the best it can be (despite what they say about Monterey Diving).  


Wonder what they say? It's Cold! Consider doing both Dry Suit Diving and Open Water together!

Dry Diving

Take the Dry Scuba Diving Specality Diving Course.

If you want to dive during the fall and winter in the colder climates, DRY SUIT DIVING is the course you should take. Visibility at these times of the year is usually excellent, so it's a very good time to get out there.
In your DRY SUIT DIVING program, you will learn about the advantages of dry suit diving, different suits, valves, underwear and dry suit accessories. During the 2 mandatory dives you will apply correct dry diving techniques and demonstrate the proper care and maintenance of a dry suit.

Deep Diving

Learn to dive Deep

The lure of the deep. There’s something exciting and mysterious about exploring deeper dive sites while scuba diving. Sometimes it’s a wreck that attracts you below 18 metres/60 feet, and on wall dives it may be a giant fan or sponge. Whatever it is, to scuba dive with confidence at depths down to 40 metres/130 feet, you should take the PADI Deep Diver Specialty course.

Advanced Open Water Diving

Become and Advanced Open Water Diver

​That’s what an Advanced Open Water Diver course all about? You don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your PADI Open Water Diver certification. The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You try out different specialties while gaining experience under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. You log dives and develop capabilities as you find new ways to have fun scuba diving.

Peak Performance Buoyancy

Peak Performance Buoyancy Learn to use your equipment the best way possable.

Excellent buoyancy control is what defines experienced scuba divers. You’ve seen them underwater. They glide effortlessly, use less air and ascend, descend or hover almost as if by thought. They more readily observe aquatic life without disturbing their surroundings. You can achieve this, too. Just ask the school. We can combine with course with an Open Water Course making it the 5th dive of the day.
