Listed above are several Open Water Scuba courses. We have flexible schedules for scuba certification courses. If you do not see dates that will work for you, please let us know and we can create a schedule that works for you. We can provide you with weekend or week day classes. You also have the option of starting your scuba training in Tampa and completing your scuba certification in South Florida or the Florida Keys.

Private and small group classes are available. Contact Trilogy Dive Center for more information on having a private course. 

Open Water Scuba Diver (OW) - The $499 covers the entire course: e-learning, pool, and check out dives! You will complete 6 dives in your certification course, 3 dives per training day. These are full days of fun and hard work. Fins, Mask, Snorkel, and booties are not included in the course. Trilogy Dive Center students receive a 15% discount on all required equipment. There is a great selection of fins, mask, and snorkels to choose from. Please come in prior to your class to purchase all required equipment for your scuba certification. Day one of the course is a full day. Meet at Trilogy Dive Center early, complete paperwork, get fitted for gear, and head out for pool work. Days 2 and 3 are your open water check out dives. Locations vary based on weather and students. This is the most complete scuba certification experience in Tampa Bay!

Enhanced Open Water Scuba Diver (EOW) - The Enhanced Open Water Scuba Diver course is similar to above for your pool work and first set of check out dives. To complete your course you will have two days of diving with a dive charter in Jupiter, West Palm, Pompano Beach, or the Florida Keys. This is a great opportunity to add additional diving experience under the watchful eye of your instructor. This option gives you a total of 8 dives in your certification process. You will have the opportunity to pursue additional dive training on your second day of diving. If you are interested in the ultimate certification experience look through our courses and select one with EOW in the title. You can also ask our shop about this option and see what dives are planned to accomodate your schedule. 

Optional Course Upgrades 

Trilogy Dive Center suggests the following certification upgrades for your Open Water Course. While not mandatory or required, our experience shows these upgrades tend to complete your course and better prepares you for diving. Speak with your instructor if you have questions on these upgrades. They can be added to your program at just about any time prior to your open water check out dives or even after you complete your scuba certification course. 

Dive Computer Course: You will learn about your dive computer during class and pool training but we offer a one hour computer course that includes a dive in our hyperbaric chamber! The dive serves a few purposes. First, doing a "dive" in the hyperbaric chamber provides the same pressure as you would feel in an actual scuba dive. The difference is that you can talk with your instructor. This is a huge benefit when diving as you can ask questions and know that you understand your instructor.  Secondly, the pressure in the chamber allows you to learn how to properly equalize or "clear" your ears. You will dive to 60feet on your chamber dive, and this gives you ample practice for when you actually conduct your open water dives. Lastly, you will learn dive computer operations under actual diving conditions. You will see your computer work in real time, able to ask your instructor questions, and know that when you hit the open water you will understand how your computer operates and what you are looking at. Doing a class in a functioning hyperbaric chamber isnt widely available and you will not find this option available anywhere in the Tampa Bay area. Come experience the "Blue Monster" only at Trilogy Dive Center! Cost: $50

Ocean Dive: This is a great option to finish your course! This would typically be a dive site in the Gulf of Mexico but other options may be available. You will learn boat etiquette, learn how to do proper water entries and exits, and get the experience of diving in the open ocean. This is a full day of fun and includes all your scuba gear, tanks, and lunch! Cost: $175

Nitrox Course: Our scuba tanks contain compressed air but with Nitrox Certification you can dive a mix of Nitrox in your scuba tanks. The air we breathe has 21% oxygen, Nitrox contains more than 21% oxygen and up to 40% oxygen for recreational scuba divers. Why should I dive Nitrox? Great question! Nitrox allows for a longer dive and shorter surface interval. You will learn why when you take the course. Trilogy Dive Center prefers to give the Nitrox course in person. It is a 4 hour course that is scheduled week nights and on the weekends. It is best to do after you have completed your online academics and your first open water dives so you are familiar with diving on air. Cost: $99
