We recommend that you come to the dive shop at least a few days in advance of the course to purchase the additional study materials, which include a required 4-hour instructional DVD set and the 5-chapter dive manual. You will be required to watch the DVDs and review the manual before the classroom start date. Cost for this option is $399.

Discount for active and retired military and their dependents is $25 off the regular pricing. Discovery Dive World also extends this discount to anyone who has a family member enrolled in the same open water dive course (both receive the discount).
