Getting certified is fun and full of pretty sights to see when done at Tobermory. Make it a weekend getaway either alone, with your buddy or a non-diver guest. Spend a few nights away from home, dive in the morning, and enjoy the town and sights during the evening!
Sometime during the week before your trip, you will come pickup your rental gear from our shop. We will give you a map of Tobermory and directions on how to get there. It is recommended you head up to Tobermory sometime on the Friday, because you will meet your instructor and fellow divers at 8:30am on Saturday morning in Tobermory. From here your instructor will give you a briefing of the day, and what to expect for the weekend. Any questions you may have for the weekend, our dive shop or the assigned instructor to your course, will be happy to assist you. 

What You’ll Need?


  • Must have completed the academic/pool portion of the course. 
  • Be 12 years or older.


  • We offer Open Water students a rental package priced at $150 for the weekend. This includes your two air tanks, weights, BCD, wetsuit, regulator with integrated computer, hood and gloves. 
  • If you do not own a mask, snorkel, fin and boots, it is an extra $60 for the weekend.  
  • Outside of equipment, you will need to have found a place to stay overnight at for the weekend in Tobermory. Our shop reserves rooms at a hotel, therefore after you book your spot with us for the trip, you can call and reserve your room.
