Have you ever dreamed of being a SCUBA DIVER?  Of floating weightlessly underwater amid the beautiful coral reef and fish?  Of swimming with dolphins or finding that treasure chest full of gold?  Here's your chance to learn all the basic skills necessary to live your dream.

Who can learn to scuba dive?

Almost anyone 10 years old or older in average physical condition who is comfortable in the water.  For recreational sport diving, it is more important to be comfortable in the water than to have marathon swimming skills.

What equipment is required?

You will need a mask, snorkel, fins and wet suit boots.  All other equipment is supplied for your training sessions.  We suggest you consult with us before you purchase these items so you are aware of the correct fit, form and function in order to make an educated purchase.

Becoming a SCUBA diver is as easy as 1, 2, 3...

1. Classroom lectures introduce you to the topics of diving physics, physiology, medicine, environment, and dive safety.

2. Pool sessions feature a low stress learning environment where you will practice diving skills, learn your personal limitations and the behavior needed to function enjoyably and safely as a diver.

3. Following successful completion of your classroom and pool sessions, you can complete your training dives either locally or at one of our vacation destinations.
