In a pickle here. . .
Taking the diving course while I am there and ordered new open water dive manual but just found out there was mix up and will not arrive in time.

Can buy another here today (Only dive shop closes at 2:00 and is not open for the next few days) but wondering if I will receive a third from course on island?

I was thinking that because they were kind of pricey (65.00- new one comes with all the bells and whistles) that I would probably not get one form the courses there? Am I right/wrong (I would really rather not buy three!)?

Could someone who is familiar with the island courses tell me whether or not they provide the new dive manual with the course?

Much thanks

email either of these dive shops & they can tell you in detail.
or, read the websites about course instruction.

you can find their sites from the home page. there is a directory of websites there.

I took my Open Water course from Happy and Grumpy aka the Jacksons, and had excellent instruction from Jolene. They did not have me purchase the material from them, and actually encouraged me to buy the material locally. Take a deep breath, it will all work out.

Wow, funny you should say take a deep breath. . . Woke up this morning very hyper and not sure if it is new coffee beans, or anticipation about trip! Only three days to go and I am beginning to count the minutes!

When we were certified on the island last year, the instructor provided manuals. We saw the PADI course on Video during our course, read the manuals in the evening and had lecture time after we saw the video in segments. It all worked out just fine-relax...
