Aquatic Realm Scuba Center - PADI Explorer Team Course

You're a pro at the underwater DPV (dive propulsion vehicle) course and night diving from a simulated boat. On your last dive expedition you mapped a reef and oh yeah, you created a new hand signal for the fresh water fish in Ohio. Sound like fun? This is just another day of diving for the Underwater Explorer.

Exclusive only to Aquatic Realm, the Underwater Explorer Club is perfect for the young diver that wants to start scuba diving right away or is already a junior certified diver or Master Seal and wants to be part of a great scuba diving club.

This custom course uses the PADI Open Water Diver materials to introduce diving knowledge and skills. So from day one you will be on the path to Junior Open Water Diver, if you aren't already. This certification is all about the diving.

How do you Get Started

Step 1 - Introductory Dive - $50.00   this dive in our heated indoor pool introduces your child to breathing underwater on scuba in a fun and safe environment. During this supervised session your child will be evaluated for continuing with the program. This step ensures that your child is ready to learn and will be successful in the program.  Approx.: 2 hrs.

Step 2 - Academic Training - $100.00  after successfully completing the introductory dive, the student will use the same educational material used in the Open Water Diver Course to study at home and come to an academic session for review and discussion. Price includes training and academic materials.  Approx.: 2 hrs.

Step 3 - Explorer Pool Skills/Equipment Training - $100.00  during this session you will continue diving and learn all the cool dive skills that you will use when you come to our monthly Explorer Dives as a certified PADI Explorer Team Member. The dive equipment handling and preparation will be introduced at this session. Approx.: 2 hrs.

Monthly Club Explorer Dives:

On a regularly scheduled basis your explorer will go on a 90 minute dive adventure. Each adventure offers a new and exciting dive experience. How do you fly underwater on a DPV? What is night diving like? How do you dive a wreck or study underwater creatures? The possibilities are endless. Once they complete 10 expeditions they will receive their 2nd PADI Specialty rating of Master Explorer!

Pre-Registration is required. 937-428-9836 to enroll.

*Parent or Guardian Signature required on releases before participation and some medical conditions may prevent participation without a Doctors written approval.
