What to Expect In Your Classes

For the classroom and pool weekend for Open Water Diver, we meet Saturday AND Sunday at 9:00 am at the shop, 5001 Central Ave NW (on the north side of Central just east of Old Coors).

For all other classes like Advanced Open Water Diver, Specialties such as Night, Deep, UW Imaging, and Rescue Diver, start times vary and are set by you and your instructor.

During the first weekend of Open Water Diver class, we will cover dive theory, safety, and dive procedures until about 1:00 or 2:00 pm, then we will take a break to fit rental gear and have lunch. After that, we will meet at West Mesa Aquatic Center (6705 Fortuna Rd NW; next to West Mesa High School) a little later in the afternoon and practice all of the in-water skills until 7:00 or 8:00 pm.

On Sunday for all students that are in the pool, please plan for a little extra time to return the gear to the shop after the pool session is complete.

For the second weekend of Open Water class, we meet Saturday morning at 9:00am at Blue Hole in Santa Rosa, NM. About 1 hour 45 min east of Albuquerque, Santa Rosa has hotels, camping, restaurants, and RV parks available for your stay. Ask us about the diver discount at most hotels and where the best green chile is...

We will begin with a dive site briefing to introduce you to the Blue Hole, the friendly locals and dive shop, as well as our staff on duty. We will do two dives “back to back” before lunch. In the afternoon we will do one more dive and work on surface skills. Sunday morning we will meet at 9:00 am to do our last dive (or dives, depending on the class) and complete your certification. After the certification dive(s), there is ususally time for another fun dive or two if you so desire!
