Learn how to SCUBA Dive with Dive On It Scuba.  (say that real fast 🙂 ) We offer nearly the entire range of PADI classes and can get you started on your fun journey beneath the sea.  Beginning with a "Discover SCUBA" lesson you can get a brief taste of what it's like to breathe underwater in our pool using high quality Aqua Lung & Hollis Dive Gear!  If you know you're ready to get your full certification, our "Open Water SCUBA Diver" classes run at least once a month (more during peak seasons).

Our Discover SCUBA intro costs $60 per person, with $30 credited to your Open Water class if you sign up within 30 days.

Our standard Open Water SCUBA Diver class costs $649* for a regular group class and Private lessons are also available.  And our regular pricing includes gear rental, open water dives and no surprise fees!  (* See below for Options)

What do you need?

Are you ready to take the plunge and explore the other 70% of the Earth?   Great!  Stop in the shop or give us a call at 401-333-0002 to inquire about class schedules and availability. 

Once you're signed up we'll give you a set of materials (books, logbook, swag, etc) to get you going.  You'll attend 2 - 3 classroom sessions at the shop then we'll have pool sessions to learn and practice the necessary skills.  And of course, we make sure there is some playtime in each pool session!  

You'll also need some personal gear.   While we'll supply the necessary "life support" gear for you to take the class such as Buoyancy Compensator, Regulators, SCUBA Cylinder & weights, you will need to supply some "personal" items.  The Personal Items are SCUBA quality Mask, Snorkel, Fins and Boots (for the SCUBA Fins).  We offer all of these items in our shop and can make sure you're properly sized and everything fits comfortably and properly (and looks good too! ).   If you already have some or all of these items, Great!  However, please keep in mind that non-SCUBA masks may leak or be uncomfortable at depth (many snorkeling masks are fine at the surface but don't hold up so well at 30+ feet), and we do require SCUBA pocket fins that utilize a bootie or boot. 

Want to get started right away?  Begin the classroom session with PADI e-Learning!  e-Learning will give you a head-start on the class and let you out of having to goto one to two of our in-shop classroom sessions. e-Learning is an additional cost that is not required to participate in the Open Water SCUBA Class.

Free Snorkel with Personal Gear Purchase! (upto $50 value!)

Buy your "Personal Dive Gear" items from us along with a class and get a free Aqua Lung Snorkel!  That's right, if you buy your new mask, fins & booties from us we'll let you choose an Aqua Lung snorkel for free!   You can pick either a SideDraft ($39 value) or an Impulse 3 ($50 value and the easiest breathing snorkel in the industry).

VIP Valet Service!

Our New VIP Valet Service has begun in March of 2018.

For a fixed fee of $125 per student we will handle transporting your gear to the pool & dive sites as well as cleaning it afterwards.  Great for those with a busy schedule or who may wish to not deal with moving the heavy & wet dive gear around.  Gear cleaning normally ranges $25 - $45 each time depending on number of items.  So in addition to having us take care of the 'dirty work', we'll also transport the heavy stuff.   We do require however that you maintain control of your own personal property.  So we will generally not transport or clean masks, snorkels, fins and boots.  However if you have purchased a 'Full Kit' from us for the class we'll keep everything together for you and clean all items as part of this service.



  • CORE SCUBA Gear (* items required for Full Kit specials/discounts)
    • Rental of these items is included in Open Water Class Pricing
