Important Changes to Our Courses:


We are limiting our group sizes to 4 divers per instructor. We also have private and semi-private options for those that prefer not to dive with a group.


Those requiring transportation, we are limiting the amount of passengers in each van. We encourage you to drive yourself to and from the dive site if you have the ability.


For the safety of our customers, and to reduce the risk of transmission, we are asking all divers to purchase/provide their own Mask, Snorkel, & Regulator Mouthpiece​

Course Price $299.95 Includes:

All scuba equipment (including wetsuit) is provided for your course.

Students need to provide or purchase their own mask, snorkel, and regulator mouthpiece (special packages available).

Fins, Boots, Gloves and dive light (for your night dive) are available for rental $40 for the entire course.

Students are also required to have their own dive computer or bottom timing device. Computers are available to rent for $25 for the weekend.

The water here can get quite chilly, which is why most of us dive in a drysuit year round! It is possible to dive in a wetsuit from June – September, but a drysuit is still highly recommended.

If you haven’t dove in a drysuit before, you will need to complete the drysuit orientation. You will do some additional pool training which will teach you how to use a drysuit in a confined water setting, and how to handle the changes in buoyancy. You will then get to use the drysuit for your ocean dives.

Drysuit Rental – $75 (If you’ve already completed the pool orientation)

Drysuit Upgrade – $99.95 (Includes additional pool training, and drysuit rental for all 5 of your ocean dives)

Should you decide to upgrade to the full PADI Drysuit Specialty later on, you would just pay an additional $199.95, and come out for two more ocean dives.

Must be 12 years of age or older.

Must have dove within the last 12 months, otherwise a refresher is required.

Must be at least PADI Open Water certified or equivalent


Must be able to complete a medical questionnaire, and obtain medical clearance if necessary.

We will be doing temperature checks for all students prior to each session.

Everyone is required to fill out a Declaration of Health form.

All divers will be required to have their own mask, snorkel and regulator mouthpiece.

Divers will be required to wear a mask or face covering while in the store/classroom/van

Something come up and need to postpone your course? No problem! We ask that you give us 1 week notice, as we do fill up quickly so we’d like to have time to fill your spot.

Unfortunately we do not offer refunds, but we would be happy to move you to a different date or offer you a credit towards a future trip or course.
