What makes our divers different? They keep diving because they are comfortable in the water. You will leave our classes with not only the knowledge that you gained but with the knowledge of how you can improve your own diving.
If you’re new to diving, it’s hard to make an informed decision about where to get your dive training. That means the price is often what makes the decision, but think about this: Learning to SCUBA dive is essentially learning to operate life support equipment in an alien environment.
Now, let’s be honest. If SCUBA were really dangerous, not many people would do it. It’s the same with flying. Taking a trip on a jet is one of the safest ways to travel, and more people fly today than ever. Right now, there are about 1 million people in the air worldwide. If you look at the history of aviation, you’ll see a lot of crashes and deaths, but those slowed down as the standards and training of pilots improved.
Unfortunately, SCUBA is the opposite. While there are fewer divers today than in the past, fatalities have remained steady. There are a few possible explanations, but in our opinion, the bottom line is that most SCUBA training is not good enough. That’s why our shop does things differently.

Being safe isn’t hard, but you need quality training to ensure it. We aren’t going to compromise your safety to make a quick dollar. Sure, we are a business, but we’ve found that investing in our students makes them better divers who want to invest in more training. That’s a win-win.
