SCUBA Classes

We are an official PADI eLearning school! Why return home after vacation with just memories and a sunburn when you could return home with a PADI open water certification and a whole new appreciation of the underwater world?

Fathom Five and PADI eLearning is an excellent way for a new diver to study at their own pace and on their own time schedule while also getting to finish up your education in a beautiful dive spot like Kauai. PADI eLearning is internet based (online) course work that you can access from anywhere via the world wide web.

With PADI eLearning, you can sign-up and complete the knowledge-based dive training from the convenience of your home, office or on the road, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. PADI’s eLearning system gives you the flexibility to study course material at your own pace. During the course, you can access the support of a PADI Professional at Scuba Center by email or phone to get guidance and help about the topic you are studying
