Open Water Diver

Become a certified scuba diver with the Dive Source. What sets us apart? It’s our smaller, more intimate class settings, which result in a higher level of personal attention

What’s involved?

  • With our state-of-the-art eLearning program, you can begin immediately and complete all the academics when and where it is most convenient. (This also gives you more time in the water.)
  • Once the academics are completed, we’ll schedule your in-water training. This starts with approximately four to six hours in the pool.

Following your pool training, you’ll make four dives in open water over two days. You can choose to do these dives:

  • In some of our many freshwater springs
  • On a shallow reef in the Atlantic
  • …or a combination of both

Following your final open-water dives, you’ll receive your Open Water Diver card.

Enriched Air Nitrox

Enriched Air Nitrox (EANx) is nothing more than the air you are breathing right now, but with a higher concentration of oxygen and a lower concentration of nitrogen. This can result in longer bottom times, shorter surface intervals, greater safety margins or a combination of all three. The course addresses several topics, including:

  • Nitrox benefits and drawbacks
  • The physics and physiology of oxygen and nitrogen
  • Avoiding oxygen toxicity and DCS
  • Calculating Maximum Operating Depth (MOD)
  • Determining the best Nitrox mixture based on MOD
  • Calculating Equivalent Air Depths (EADs)
  • Using EADs in conjunction with air dive tables
  • Common Nitrox blending methods
  • Safety around oxygen
  • Analyzing Nitrox mixtures
  • Planning Nitrox dives
