Default Best price on open water cert?

Have a Wounded Warrior buddy and his wife that wants to get certified. He's a true American hero, served in Afghanistan and now medically disabled. I've taken him and his wife diving a couple times and he really enjoyed it, so they want to get certified. Hoping for better than "shop prices" so figured I'd throw this out there.

Appreciate the responses.

They are all going to be about the same prices. Dive pros has a heated covered pool on site. also excellent instructors. Just had my 13 year old granddaughter certified there.

Ron is correct about all of them are about the same price, but, you can't put a price on a good scuba instructer. Do your home work and go to the best. You will be glad you did.

Dive Pros has/works with a guy that specializes in wounded warriors and diving, I recommend you give them a call. Being a vet; I for one, would be happy to contribute what I can towards getting him certified.

Do not be cheap with scuba classes.

MBT or Dive Pros
Both are great shops with great instructors.

Please send me a PM with your contact information, I would like to contribute to your friend getting certified. I know a couple other guys here at the fire station that will put some money toward it also.

Thank your friend for his service to us and our country.

That's very generous of you guys and I agree with my experiences with Dive Pro. Instead of giving me anything, how about I call them tomorrow and set up something for them to accept anything towards his cert.

I'll post back here when I have some information and who to give it to there.

Really appreciate the info/feedback!

Actually a dive master from here has offered to certify them for $75 each. If this goes through (and with his permission) I'll get you guys the info so you can send any donations directly to him. Thanks again guys.
