At the forefront of our teaching philosophy is that we are dedicated to ensuring that you are trained to the level of the certification card you will be earning. We want you fully prepared to conduct dives at that level once you are no longer under our supervision. We are not just checking boxes and calling it done. We are not interested in getting you in and out as quickly as possible so that we can move onto the next customer. Our job isn't done until you are competent and comfortable with what you have learned and be good at diving!
Our scuba classes are always SMALL. No, this isn't the most cost effective for us, but you learn better and it's more fun for us when there are only 3 or 4 students per class. Especailly for those taking their open water diver course with us!
We start with a plan, but we adjust as necessary to address the things that need a little more time. Certain classes beyond the Open Water Diver course are "pay as you go" for instructor led sessions, so you aren't paying for training when what you need is a little extra self-guided practice time. Then when you're ready for more instruction, you can schedule more sessions. We go at your pace! This is also helpful if you have a tricky work schedule.
Are you certified at a given level, but it's been a while since you practiced those skills? Schedule a session to drill specific skills, check your form or protocols, get some video feedback, etc. Almost every single other activity encourages on-going coaching and practice to improve your skill. Scuba diving is no different.
This is where it all begins! Take your first breaths underwater, learn to use your scuba gears, experience neutral buoyancy, explore new environments, discover new destinations!
Enhance your skills and knowledge with more training. We offer specialties or "mini" courses for developing a particular skill such as navigating underwater, using doubles, deploying an SMB, running guideline, etc.
Do you want to dive deeper than recreational depths, explore deeper shipwrecks, or you are you a gear junkie and want to dive all that "cool looking" gear? Technical classes are for you!
For a few classes, there's no water needed! Take a Nitrox class or Science of Diving class. These are "dry" classes and will make your scuba experiences even better!
Sometimes you just want to reinforce your skills, polish up something in particular, review some dive theory, or just talk scuba in a little bit more structured setting, but without the formality of a class. Take a workshop. Think of it as a structured coaching session. These can be tailored to your specific needs.
More details coming soon.
When you know what you're looking at, diving is so much more interesting. Fish or coral identification, turtle ecology, and marine ecology classes are offered.
