Confused about something? Below are some Frequently Asked Questions we hope you will find helpful. For further clarification, please call, click or stop in to ask a One World Dive & Travel Staff Member!

Can eLearning be shared?
No. eLearning integrates both the Knowledge Reviews and Quizzes into the program, requiring each individual to complete their own.

Why do I need to pay more to get my 10 or 11 year old certified?
PADI requires 10 & 11 year olds to have a 4:1 ratio instead of the standard 8:1 ratio for ages 12 and up. This is the best way we can ensure the safety of your child both physically and mentally.

What will it cost to rent gear for my Open Water Dives at Homestead Crater or Aurora Reservoir for the weekend?
BCD: $25 * Regulator: $25 * Mask & Snorkel: $6 * Fins: $6 * 7mm Wetsuit: $20
There is no additional charge for tanks & weights. 7mm wetsuit is only needed for Aurora Reservoir.

Do I have to be a good swimmer to learn to dive?
You will need to float/tread water in the deep end for 10 minutes and be able to swim for 200 yards OR snorkel for 300 yards. If you are concerned about any of these requirements, private swim lessons are available to get you up to par!

Do I need to be medically cleared by my doctor to Scuba Dive?
Only if you answered "YES" to any questions on the required PADI Medical Questionnaire, otherwise no physician release is needed.
