Open Water Course at Lac Lavon

  • Bring your current medical form to the shop (if you haven't done so already)

  • Bring your referral form if you are being referred by another instructor or shop.

  • You should have your own Mask, Snorkel, and Fins. Bring those!

  • If you need dive gear, arrive at the shop 30 minutes early (0r more) to get fitted and to get the gear you need loaded into your car.

    • Make sure you have room in your car for your Tank, BCD, Fins, and Wetsuit. You'll be transporting these yourself. Remember, these will be a little wet (or a lot wet) after the diving. 

  • Payment options if you still need to pay

    • When diving at Lac lavon, you will arrive in the parking lot, and the dive site is down a slight grade (20 degrees) about 75 yards from the parking lot. You will need to walk back up this after the dive.

  • Your dive log book or your PADI app so we can log your dives.

  • A good attitude, and enthusiasm!​​​


What to expect

SCUBA training may seem daunting at first. But remember, I am here to help YOU get comfortable, and master the skills you need to get certified. 


Number of Dives

We will be doing 3 dives on day one, and 3 dives on day two.

You may be thinking: "But Dive Buddy Benny... certification is only 4 dives!, what gives?!"

Most shops, and instructors want to get you in the water, and out of the water, and just simply get you certified. That's not how I roll. 

I not only want you meet the standards of training, I want you to feel like you are prepared to dive, and have fun doing so.

To do that, I will maximize our time underwater to achieve mastery over the skills you learn, especially the ones that you will use MOST often on any given dive. (Like Buoyancy!)

Ultimate Goal


The goal for me is to have you floating through the water column like a mystical water human in a world of wonder, comfortably and confidently.
