SCUBA Diving

The best way to be introduced to SCUBA diving is to sign up to get certified.  Becoming a certified diver means you can join the diving community. Once we certify you, you can travel to any destination and dive, rent SCUBA gear, get your tanks filled, or take a charter out and do a boat dive.


What is the difference between NAUI and PADI?

They both are SCUBA Certification Organizations, NAUI exceeds all minimum standards and spends more time on their students.


Can I dive without being certified?

Yes! We offer SCUBA Excursions.  SCUBA excursions are about 2-4 hours.  We meet at an agreed upon location, usually somewhere where the water is mellow. We introduce you to the basic techniques of diving and take you on a 35-45 minute dive depending on conditions.
