We offer several different options for you to become a NAUI certified scuba diver at a steep discount.

Family Discount: Buy two NAUI certifications and get the third certification for 50% off.

Student Discount: Any student with a current & valid student ID or current academic year transcript can purchase an NAUI Open Water Referral course for $300. Open Water Referral covers the eLearning academics & pool training BUT does not cover the four required open water dives to obtain certification. These can be completed elsewhere or with Learn Scuba Chicago for $175 during our open-water season.

Alumni Referral Discount: Were you certified with Learn Scuba Chicago? Did your family and friends get hooked on diving after trying out a Discover Dive? If you refer someone to us and they sign up for an Open Water course, they will get $50 off their certification cost, and you get $50 to apply towards an NAUI Advanced Open Water or NITROX/EANx certification.

Military/Veterans Discount: All Military service personnel receives a 10% discount on any order – just show a Military ID when making a purchase.

Corporate Events

Thinking about your next corporate team meeting outing, Christmas Party or after work event? We are excited to offer the opportunity of discovering diving for a low flat fat fee to our corporate clients.

During your discover dive, you will be introduced to the basic skills and equipment. This is only the beginning of a lifelong journey of excitement and exploration in the underwater world. This experience will be a private event for up to 10 individuals at our Bensenville Pool. On the day of the pool, bring a swimsuit, towel, and required signed paperwork for each participant. We bring the rest.
