What's The Difference Between NAUI + PADI?
Both agencies can make good and bad divers, but NAUI has the potential for better training if you get a good instructor. The big difference between the agencies is the flexibility given to instructors. NAUI certification also requires a skin dive, but PADI does not. For these reasons, the United States Armed Services uses NAUI certification.
How Old Do I Need To Be To Start Scuba Diving?
We can certify anyone from the age of 10 to scuba dive, but from age 10-14 you will receive a Junior Scuba Diver card. The kids aged 10-14 take the exact same class is exactly the same as the "adult" certification, but Junior Scuba Divers must dive with a certified responsible adult and not with another Junior. At age 15, they can upgrade their card to the full adult certification without taking the class again.
Can I Take The Class On My Own or Do I Need A Buddy?
You can come to the class on your own or with a buddy! If you don't have a buddy, we will buddy you up with someone else in the class or with the instructor.
Do You Offer Private Classes?
Yes, absolutely! If you can't make one of our scheduled classes, or if you feel like you would learn better one- or two-on-one with the instructor, we can set up classes to suit your schedule. These are a little more expensive than our scheduled classes, and pricing varies depending on the number of students in the private class. Please call us to discuss options!
Do You Offer Refresher Classes?
Yes we do! Refreshers are scheduled as and when they are requested. We have a few options and prices for refreshers, please give us a call to discuss the best option for you!
Do You Offer Gear Rentals?
Yes! We have a large selection of BCDs, regulators, air and nitrox tanks available for rental. Pricing is by the day and package pricing is available for people going on scheduled trips with our instructors.
Can I Use The Pool To Try Out Gear?
Yes, we have an onsite, heated 10ft deep pool which certified divers may use to try out any gear when we do not have classes going on. The cost of doing this varies, depending on whether you have your own gear or not.
