Now Accepting Certification Referrals for PADI, NAUI, SSI, and PDIC

Maybe you spend too much time on the computer at work and would rather turn down the lights and watch a video. With the open water video and manual you can have it your way. Becoming a certified diver has never been more convenient, jump in and test the waters today.

Stop in at the Portage Quarry dive shop and have those questions answered. And sign up for a course or to purchase those materials to get you started.

Portage Quarry is a certified PADI resort. For over 25 years we have been serving the northwest Ohio area in the services of diving and supporting those instructors teaching the sport. Our Master dive trainer is certified through three agencies and has spent his life in this area teaching and traveling the world diving. Usually our classes are very small, with two or three students, but we can arrange classes for groups from 6 to 30 students.

This PADI course is conducted over a four-day period and the student sets the pace. We usually meet in the evenings, if you complete the classroom and the pool work, and then itís on to your certification dives. This only takes 2 half days. And you are a certified diver.

We offer advanced certification along with Specialty ratings, and can take you up the ladder of Diving.

Prices vary. Please call the
Quarry Dive shop.
