BOY SCOUTS Boy Scouts of America Scuba Diving Program

Group Learn to Scuba Course (You must be a member of  the below group to register)

This is a great program for groups, large families or scouts. We provide everything you need to learn to scuba dive.

 Course Includes:

Class and Pool

All instruction for classroom review and pool sessions (Atlantic Edge will provide pool), PADI E-Learning Online, use of mask, snorkel, and fins, Scuba gear, wetsuit, and weights*. Students will receive a PADI Referral form upon successful completion of all classroom review and pool dives. This referral can be used to complete training dives with Atlantic Edge locally or with any PADI Instructor worldwide.

 Training Dives

All you have to do to complete your certification is 4 training dives over 2 days (these dives are additional), check the Atlantic Edge schedule for upcoming training dive dates or we can schedule dives to fit your groups schedule locally. A PADI Open Water certification is good for life, so divers will not have to take the course again.
