The Class Process at Seasport Divers
   Registration and Knowledge Development

First, you'll need to register for the PADI Open Water Scuba Diver course with Seasport Divers. Our friendly staff will guide you through the process and provide you with all the necessary information. Once registered, you will receive the PADI Open Water Diver e-learning materials. If you haven't purchased them yourself, Seasport Divers will send them to you. These e-learning materials are designed to guide you through the knowledge development sessions of the course. During the knowledge development sessions, you will complete various modules online. These modules cover a wide range of topics related to scuba diving theory, equipment, safety procedures, and skills. They provide you with comprehensive information to ensure you have a solid understanding of the essential concepts and principles of scuba diving.

   Classroom Review and Confined Water Sessions

For the first day of class you will check in at 8:30 AM for a quick review of the e-Learning. Then we will get going on your confined water dives in shallow water at the Kukui’ula harbor! Finish time will depend on how comfortable you are with all the skills, but it is usually around 1:00. Note: You can even arrive on Kauai with this already done by completing your confined water dives with your local dive shop (usually in a pool). Then you would save time on your trip by only doing the open water diving while you’re here.

On your second day, you will check in again at 8:30 AM for your first two Open Water dives at our shore location, Koloa Landing. This dive site is perfect for training! You will be done around 12:30. We will provide snacks and water throughout the morning.

Complete all of the e-Learning Knowledge Reviews, quizzes, and final exam prior to arriving so we can get you in the water right away!

   Open Water Sessions & Boat Upgrade

On your final day, you will either check in at 8:30 AM for your last two dives from shore, or if you decide you want to do the boat upgrade (highly recommended!), you will check in at 12:30 PM for your final two Open Water dives off the boat. You will be back to the store around 5 PM, where you and your instructor will log your dives, finish paperwork, get your pictures taken and your instructor will process your temporary certification cards. Then you will be Open Water certified for life!
