NAUI Open Water SCUBA Certification

Friday, May 12, 2023 5 p.m. to Sunday, May 14 at 10 p.m.


Outdoor Adventure is proud to partner with Ranger Rick's SCUBA Adventure, one of the most experienced scuba dive outfitters, for our entry-level NAUI SCUBA certification course. This course is available for students who are currently enrolled and taking classes at UCF.

Upon successful completion of this course and check-out dives, graduates are considered competent to engage in open water diving activities without supervision, provided the diving activities and the areas dived approximate those of training. No previous SCUBA experience is required; however, basic swimming skills are necessary to complete the course.

The total cost of the certification is $320 with $40 due at the time of registration. The rest of the price is due the first weekend of the certification paid to Ranger Rick SCUBA Adventures.


In order for the participant to receive the SCUBA certification, they must complete two consecutive weekends of training. The first weekend encompasses the classroom work and practice dives in the pool. The first weekend includes Friday night, all day Saturday, and all day Sunday. For the second weekend, Ranger Rick will pick either Saturday or Sunday to complete the Open Water Dives.

Open Water Dives

The second weekend of the certification will be when the students can complete their open water dives. These dives take place either at Devil’s Den, Blue Grotto, KP Hole, or Blue Heron Bridge. This is a full-day commitment. Transportation is not included.


A SCUBA-quality mask, snorkel, wetsuit, fins, and SCUBA booties are the student's responsibility to bring to all dive sessions. These pieces can be rented through the Outdoor Adventure Center and is included in the course fee. This equipment is subject to availability. All other equipment and materials are provided by Ranger Rick SCUBA Adventures.


You may submit an online registration form and pay over the phone, or come into the Outdoor Adventure Center to sign up for the certification. To be fully registered, you must pay the deposit ($40) by the registration deadline, which is the Wednesday before the first weekend.
