1.5 Day PADI Open Water Scuba Diver Training Day

How many PADI Open Water and Scuba Diver Training centers offer a 1 or 1.5 Day course in the Florida Keys? Do you know the answer right off the top of your head?

Have you ever wondered how quality PADI Open Water diver level and PADI Scuba Diver level can be completed in a short period of time?

If you had to guess what would you say?
Well, we do know one shop who does, and that is Sail Fish Scuba.

PADI 1.5 Day Course Outline

Interesting Questions

Customer walks into the dive shop just now, walks right up to owner Jen and asks: “How can I get PADI Open Water Diver level certification over the next 48 hours that I am here visiting Key Largo, Florida?”

Jen answered, “Pull out your I-phone and let’s show you just how easy and quick this can be.”
So, here is the full explanation of how the conversation went and how we can offer this awesome time saving/ vacation saving PADI course.



First ~ We service very small classes for training! If there are more than 3 students in a class we put 2 staff members with the class.
No PADI 8 students to each 1 instructor ratio at Sail Fish Scuba.
Personalized attention and we train until the student has successful completion of skills.

If any YES answers, phone your doctor ASAP & ask them if you email this over, can the dr. sign page 2 and send back ASAP.
This is not optional, a completed medical waiver is required for all classes.
If all answers are NO ( as our current guests were, then no Dr. signature required. )

Step #1

Sign up and pay PADI, Not Sail Fish Scuba for the required knowledge training session. These can be done right off your smart phone, and who does not travel without a smart phone now a days.

So, step #1 is from this moment on, up to the student to complete the entire knowledge training the rest of the day and tonight. This is required before starting the “water-work” sessions tomorrow.

These lessons are grouped in an easy to read fashion and normally take students about 8 to 12 hours to power through.

Tomorrow morning upon arrival we have the student send to our printer the e-Record showing completion of this knowledge training.
Following this in the morning the Instructor will go over the student folder, waivers, and quick review quiz with the student. The staff member will also take a head shot of the student for on their certification card at this time.

Step #2

Arrive at the dive shop 7:30am first day of training. Get fitted for scuba gear and head to the Jacobs Aquatic Center swimming pool for confined training.
Here are some details about this very nice heated outdoor pool that we pay to train our students in.

We will be at the pool for a half day of training.

Step #3

Post morning of confined water training we will head out for the half day open water first 2 OW training dives and surface skill sessions.
Normally we go out to the reef or shallow shipwrecks on dive boat DEEPER for this half day.

If it is too windy to go out on a boat, then we head over to the Ocean Lagoon for these dives.

Step #4

The following day join us for the morning or afternoon final half day of 2 OW training dives.

And that’s it. That right there is exactly how we can complete a full PADI Open Water Diver certification course with a student in 1.5 day of water work.
Remember, the student must log into our link for the PADI knowledge training and fully complete this before arrival here for this training.
