Conditional issues: This regular classes are designed to have a minimum of 4 students registered to have the class go as scheduled. If the minimum enrollment is not met we will try to find a way to make the class go but we need to make sure it is financial viable to make sense. The options are you can move to another schedule without any additional costs. If there is only 3 students the each student can pay a $40 fee each to go as scheduled. If there is less than 3 then we have Semi Private or Private classes where the students and instructors can customize the schedule and dives. Private and Semi Private students are required to cover the instructors Boat fees and expenses.
