PADI Basic Open Water Certification

PADI Basic Open Water Certification

This program is open to campers ages 10 and up. The scuba diving camp will be held once a session at Sea Experience’s PADI 5 Star Career Development Center (CDC), located at the Bahia Mar Resort and Marine. A five minute drive south of Birch State Park on A1A, this one week program begins at 8:30 AM Monday through Friday. Parents will drop off their Jr. Divers at the learning center where a Camp Live Oak staff member will be on site all times to greet you and assist the campers and their families with any questions or needs that may arise.

Campers will spend the week going through a combination of classroom instruction, pool and boat dives. All the facilities are all in one location and campers will need to come in their swimsuits and bring a packed lunch each day.

This has been the first camp ever that my son didn’t complain about going in the morning, but he did tell me about the friends he made and the things he did. We love this camp!
