I have recently obtained my open water scuba diver PADI certificate. It
was alot of fun and great experience. The school I took the course at
also offered a program called Discover Scuba. That program was much
cheaper and allowed the partcipants to work with an instructor on the
equipement itself. They gave you all the gear and actually did a couple
of dives in the swimming pool. My wife tried that program first, she
found out that she does not want to do it. Thus saving us both alot of
money. Thus it might be better for your boys to try that out first.
Then whoever wants to continue they can try the open water course.
Please let me know how and what you have chosen to do:)
