I want to get certified...but I'm a tad bit too far.

What's the difference between AOW and BOW?

Also...is that all it cost to get certified? Just $300?

Yes for $300 that includes everything for the class. The only thing it might not include is snorkel, mask and fins. But I'm pretty sure even that is included.

Wow...that's cheap.

I always thought it was over $1k to get certified...

I gotta find a place over in Orlando to take this course...how long does it normally take.

This is a special rate for FMAS Club members. For an extra $20 (membership fee) you can save about 200 vs other scuba companies.

i got certified by FIU, it like $75 to take the course and they offer it in the summer i just dont know if you have to be enrolled as a full time student though. its pretty cool they take you out in biscayne bay and teach you the ropes all you need is a mask and fins.

99.00 when you were a kid is probably more than 300 today. My grandma used to go to the movies for a nickel. 200x more $

Nothing is planned for the month of December. But feel free to contact instructor Worth Obrian. He may be able to work out a deal for you.

Best thing to do is contact him directly. I believe he is flexible on the dates.
