If you've always wanted to learn SCUBA, this course is the place for you to start! To enroll, you should be at least 10 years old and be a good swimmer.

Participants will learn the fundamentals of SCUBA before embarking on their first open water dive. Classroom and pool training is done in 1 weekend, followed by 1 weekend of open water training, then you?re certified.

If you are ready to step up your SCUBA skills and try out various specialties, then the advanced open water diver course is for you! Participants must be at least 12 years old and have completed their Open Water Diver certification.

In this course, you will complete two mandatory dives: Deep Adventure Dive and Underwater Navigation Dive and choose an additional three for a total of five.

If you are ready to share your love of diving with others, then the Divemaster course will help you do just that.
