Safely try scuba diving for a day in both pool and fresh water dive sites through our beginner program. While this does not earn a certification, it’s a good way to experience diving and see if it is for you. This time can be credited towards your Open Water Diver certification if you decide to take it forward.
Choose to dive at either Blue Grotto or Devil’s Den freshwater springs for a real taste of what diving has to offer.
Includes all gear and entrance fees - just bring a swimsuit and towel.
Knowledge & pool only: $150 p/p

You start with the online education system that will guide you through the theoretical side of scuba diving. If you prefer a book-in-hand approach, we can teach this part in a more traditional class setting instead.
Once you have completed the coursework, we begin your in-water training in the pool. Learn about the equipment and techniques divers use to comfortably and safely swim underwater.
Finally complete four open water dives at Blue Grotto or Devil's Den freshwater springs, where you will demonstrate your newly acquired skills while exploring the sites.
Includes all gear, instruction materials (book & video or e-learning), trained instructor, certification card, park fees.
