Developed as an easy reference for our students; we have broken down all sections of the Open Water course, listed expectations, recommended places to stay at West Hawk and pretty much everything else you’ll need to know for your course. I’m sure when you signed up you were SO excited to talk about SCUBA that you may have forgotten some of the finer details; you can always give us a call, send us an email or reference back to this page at any time. And don’t worry, we are not innocent in rambling about SCUBA.. we get lost in it all the time!
Your academics are all at home study, so you can do them on your own time at your own pace. All academics, including quizzes and exams, must be completed before the Open Water Dives – with exception of confined water at West Hawk, academics must be completed beforehand due to the nature of the condensed schedule.
All of what we learn about SCUBA diving is taught and practiced in a controlled, pool-like environment.
After completing the confined water lessons, it is time to head out to the open water scuba training site at West Hawk Lake in Manitoba’s gorgeous Whiteshell Provincial park – just 1.5 hours East of Winnipeg.
