By taking your open water scuba diving course at home you can seamlessly begin the process of certification wherever you may be. Call your favorite local dive center to begin the process. They will get you set up with e-learning. This allows you to learn at your own pace. You will complete your confined water with your local dive shop and then we can complete the four open water dives here in the warm tropical water of Kona.
