Aye, The Cap'n and his crew can take you from a beginner to a dive master!
DISCOVER SCUBA DIVING
Do you want to try scuba diving to see if you like it? This course is for you. We conduct the PADI Discover Scuba Diving course in a local pool to introduce new divers to the sport of scuba diving.
BASIC SCUBA CERTIFICATION
In this course you'll develop the skills necessary to become a certified diver. You will start in the classroom and then learn each skill in a controlled environment in a local pool. Upon completing this phase, you will do four open water dives in a local quarry or in the Caribbean if you join us on a trip to complete your certification requirements.
Are you already certified but have not been in the water for an extended period of time? The PADI Reactivate course is designed to refresh your scuba skills and prepare you for that next scuba adventure.
ADVANCED SCUBA CERTIFICATION
Are you ready to increase your diving knowledge and skills with an advanced certification? The PADI Advanced Open Water Certification is for you. In this course you will learn and practice a variety of new skills through five adventure dives on your way to your advanced certification.
This course will also qualify you to dive to the depth of 100 ft.
EMERGENCY FIRST RESPONSE
This course is great for divers and non-divers alike. It covers basic first-aid, CPR, the use of oxygen, and the use of the AED. The EFR course is also a requirement as part of the PADI Rescue Diver course.
MASTER SCUBA DIVER
The Master Scuba Diver rating denotes a level of excellence and expertise in diving skills. You can receive a PADI Master Scuba Diver rating by finishing your open water, advanced, and rescue courses. You also must be trained in five (5) specialties.
While scuba diving is generally a safe sport, the unexpected can happen. The outcome may depend on how well you are prepared. The PADI Rescue Diver Course is designed to prepare you for the unexpected. You will learn a variety of water rescue skills that will give a potential victim the greatest chance for a positive outcome.
This is the first level of becoming a PADI professional. As a PADI divemaster you will learn to work with an instructor to train new divers. You will also be trained to lead Discover Scuba Diving and Scuba Review classes.
We offer a wide variety of PADI Specialty Diver courses that will allow you to custom-tailor your dive education to meet your individual interests and needs. Any adventure dives that you participated in during your advanced course (e.g. PADI Underwater Navigation) may, at the instructor’s discretion, be counted toward that specialty.
BECOME AN EQUIPMENT SPECIALIST
Whether it's a regulator problem, a wet suit tear or a broken mask strap, the Equipment Specialist course can help. This Specialty course prepares you for the basic equipment maintenance, care and adjustments you'll encounter every day. In addition, you'll get valuable background on equipment repair and how your gear works, making you better able to protect your investment. Your instructor will show you how to overcome some common equipment problems and offer equipment configuration suggestions.
SELF RELIENT DIVER COURSE
Although most scuba dives are made with a buddy, an experienced diver may want or need to make dives without a partner. During the Self-Reliant Diver course, you learn about potential risks of diving alone, the value of equipment redundancy, and necessary back-up gear. Even if you do not plan on diving alone, the training you will receive in the Self-Reliant Diver course will make you a better diver, increase your confidence, and give you a skill set that will make you a stronger partner when diving with a buddy.
DEEP DIVER COURSE
The lure of the deep. There’s something exciting and mysterious about exploring deeper dive sites. Sometimes it’s a deep wreck that attracts you. Sometimes it’s the deep walls that seem to drop eternally into the depths. Sometime the depth lures us simply because it is there. Whatever it is, to scuba dive with confidence at depths down to 130 feet, you should take the PADI Deep Diver Specialty course.
When you're underwater, knowing where you are and where you're going is a critical skill that all scuba divers should master. You only have to surface one time during an ocean dive and see the boat off on the horizon to understand the importance of navigation skills. The PADI Underwater Navigator Specialty course will help you become a pro at finding your way underwater.
DRYSUIT DIVER COURSE
Want to stay warm? Want to extend your scuba diving season? Then dive dry. A dry suit seals you off from the water and keeps you comfortable, even in surprisingly cold water. There is incredible diving in the world’s cooler regions and in some areas, conditions are even better in colder months. Becoming a dry suit diver opens the door to activities such as deeper wreck diving and ice diving, and can extend your diving season well beyond just the warmest months of the year.
OXYGEN PROVIDER CLASS
Administering oxygen is one of the most critical aspects of providing first aid for decompression sickness and lung-overpressure injuries. The PADI Oxygen Provider course will train you in the safe administration of O2 at a level that goes beyond what is covered in Rescue Diver training. This is an excellent course to take in conjunction with Emergency First Response and Rescue Diver.
SEARCH & RECOVERY DIVER COURSE
If you’ve ever lost something in the water and wanted to find it, then the PADI Search and Recovery Diver Specialty course is for you. The Search and Recovery Diver course will teach you effective ways to find objects underwater and bring them to the surface. You will need search and recovery skills for your rescue class. Also, the Search and Recovery Specialty will fulfill the search and recovery obligation for your Divemaster course.
ENRICHED AIR NITROX COURSE
Few things have revolutionized recreational diving in the past decade as much as the introduction of Enriched Air Nitrox (EANx). By diving with enriched air rather than standard air you can extend your no-decompression limits. This means more time underwater. For example, if you dive to 50 feet on air, your no decompression limit is 80 minutes. But, diving on EANx 36 Nitrox gets you 220 minutes of no decompression time - an increase of 140 minutes. You also reduce the risk of decompression sickness compared to making the same series of dives using air.
PEAK PERFORMANCE BUOYANCY
If you want to fine-tune your buoyancy, extend bottom time by reducing air consumption and prolong the life of your dive equipment, the Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty course is for you. Good buoyancy is one of the most critical skills a diver needs — and there is no skill more difficult for new divers to master. Good buoyancy takes practice, and takes time.
NIGHT/LIMITED VISIBILITY DIVER
Many divers find that night diving is their favorite type of diving. As with all specialty diving applications, procedures are different than those associated with open water diving. The purpose of this course is to acquaint the open water diver with the procedures, techniques, and potential hazards associated with diving at night, or in limited visibility. Becoming familiar with the use of dive lights, and night diving techniques such as navigation, buddy system procedures, communications,
buoyancy control, and interacting with nocturnal aquatic life, the diver can safely enjoy night diving.
