Open Water Diver Training
Getting Confident and Comfortable
Flexible options to get you certified. Starting with the PADI eLearning program you learn about diving at your convenience. The next step is two days learning to scuba dive in the pool. This is followed by a day of diving from the beach and weather depending a day boat diving. You then earn your Open Water Diver certification, good for a lifetime of adventure. The goal of the class is to make you a comfortable and competent diver and ambassador for the underwater world. Our approach is to work to provide you with a comfortable learning environment. This starts with a cost that includes everything for the course (no hidden fees). The only thing that you will need are the personal fit items; scuba quality mask, snorkel and fins.

2 Tank Charter
Let't go Diving!
We run daily 2 or 3 tank dive charters departing from Anna Maria. The dive sites include local artificial reefs and natural areas. Depths are generally within open water limits (60') and offer better visibility than the shore dives but does vary based on weather. Diving in the gulf is easy with little to no current and flat bottom topography. The boat has a maximum of six passengers with lots of room for divers. An SMB is recommended for all divers. Trips can be scheduled by contacting us at the store or online booking below. Minimum number of divers may apply.
