WARNING: You may never be happy on dry land again!

When you discover scuba diving, you discover excitement and adventure - freedom and serenity. Nothing compares to the "weightless" exhilaration of breathing underwater. Only a diver knows the feeling!

To discover scuba diving, follow these three easy steps. First, your instructor provides a brief orientation. Second, you go diving in a confined water area - pool, pool-like beach, etc. There you'll learn to use scuba equipment and get accustomed to your new surroundings. Third, with an instructor, you go on a dive adventure - in the ocean - to get a close-up look at the underwater world.  It's an unforgettable experience. And best of all, the skills you acquire during your dive adventures may count toward PADI Scuba Diver and Open Water Diver certifications!

  • Experience the thrill of breathing underwater

  • Learn scuba techniques

  • Dive in a pool and in the open water

  • Prepare yourself for continuing your dive adventures

  • Experience may credit toward PADI Scuba Diver and Open Water Diver certifications

  • It's fun, it's easy, it's your chance of a lifetime

You don't have much time, but still want to become a certified diver? 

The Scuba Diver certification is a pre-entry level certification and qualifies you to dive under the inwater supervision of a PADI Divemaster (or higher rating). I takes you three academic and pool sessions plus two open water dives only to receive your certification! Counts towards the PADI Open Water Diver Course - easy to upgrade to this next level.

Your diving skills got a bit rusty?

If you go several months or longer without diving, you'll want to brush up your dive skills and knowledge. After reviewing your academic knowledge you make a confined water dive to put the polish back on your skills. Optionally an open-water dive can be added.
