Open Water Dives

Pick your ocean -- and your day -- carefully. Your experience will vary greatly depending on many factors, including whether you are in warm or cold waters and if the visibility is good or murky. On your first time out you can simply do a "resort dive," and the equipment is included. If, however, you want to be PADI-certified, you'll have to do five confined dives in a pool and four dives in the sea.

$375: Four Open Water Dives, where your instructor may at some point take you 60 feet down. Price includes $100 fee for gear rental -- Adventure Scuba

Running Tally: $1,166
