You'll be executing some skill exercises and touring during the four Open Water Dives in the Quarry's Underwater Environment.  You'll see how easy and fun it is to fly over the landscape in a fluid sky.  You'll be amazing at how much life there is to SEA.  One weekend's Rental Gear for your Open Water Training is included with the Open Water Course.
