Completing Your Open Water Training Dives

During your Open Water training dives, Adventures in Scuba does supply all of the required scuba equipment – BCD, regulator with gauge console, tanks, weight belt or weight integration system, hood and gloves.

Also included are your own personal whistle and surface marker buoy – yours to keep.




What you may not know or expect is that Adventures in Scuba also supplies the DRY SUIT and makes sure you are a certified Drysuit Diver too!  That’s what makes Adventures in Scuba so special – we want you to have the best open water experience possible AND we want you to keep coming back to dive with us!


If you are not interest in the Drysuit certification you can always complete your Open Water dives in a wetsuit and we will include the Altitude Diver specialty!


Either way you get The ADVENTURES ADVANTAGE…

  • Another pool session before going to Open Water!
  • 5 Open Water dives instead of 4!
  • 2 diving certifications instead of only 1!

Education, Safety, Security and Comfort during your first open water experience – only ADVENTURES IN SCUBA can give you all of this.

Students must supply their own mask, snorkel, fins and boots as these are VERY personal pieces of equipment and need to fit you – and only you – properly.

Weekend Open Water training dives are a truly beautiful Canadian diving experience.  In the heart of either Banff National Park or Waterton Lakes National Park it will take approx. 6 hours each day to complete your training dives.

Week night Open Water training dives are generally reserved for students with time restrictions. They are offered on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon /evenings at Lake Chaparral in the cities’ SE
and run for approx. 4 hours each day.

PLEASE NOTE:  Lake Chaparral is a private lake.  The Residents Association graciously allows us to use their facilities.  There is a user fee for every diver using the lake.  $12.50 / day is payable to Adventures in Scuba prior to any user going to the lake.

Students must complete the Open Water training dives over at least a 2-day period and within 1 (one) year of completing the academic and confined pool sessions.
