Beginner SCUBA Certification

Group Classes

Taking a beginner SCUBA certification class in a group environment is the most popular way to take a class. Besides being the most cost-effective class, this type of class also allows new divers to meet other entry level SCUBA Divers.  Group classes are offered every month on pre-arranged dates. The number of students in the class typically ranges between 6 to 8.  See our upcoming beginner SCUBA certification class dates below.

Semi-Custom Dive Classes

If your schedule doesn’t work with our pre-arranged dates for dive classes, a semi-custom beginner SCUBA certification class may be the answer for you. Custom Dive classes are a hybrid of, both, group and private lessons. The class and pool session will be customized to your schedule, while your open water dives will be completed with one of the group classes on pre-set dates.  See our upcoming class dates below.

REAL REVIEWS from our clients

I learned to dive with Billy, he is a very good instructor. I recommend him to anyone wanting to learn scuba. He jokes around, tells stories and corrects small mistakes immediately. He is very good about calling/texting in order to keep in touch about dive trips. If you ever need anything he is there to help.read more

After a life long fascination with the ocean, I finally decided to get SCUBA certified. I did a little research trying to find the best place, probably just as you are doing now. I kept seeing 5 star reviews of Billy from the Tarpon Springs location, so I booked my classes. This was absolutely the best decision I have made in a long time. Billy was an outstanding instructor! He has been diving since he was little kid, and it shows. The wealth of knowledge he shares with you from all of his experiences is something to charish. He went above and beyond in making sure I understood everything that was being taught and that I was truely comfortable in the water. He is probably one of the most passionate, funny, and genuine people you will ever meet. Thank you for everything, Billy! Cheers, to a life long friendship and an awesome new hobby!read more

Super convenient location. I dive 3-4 times a month, so I'm in there 3-4 times a month. They always have what I need, and the one time a mistake was made, it was taken care of above and beyond.

I just complete my open water certification with Billy and it was great. The online portion was good but Billy does a better job at explaining and having stories that relate to what you need to know. I would recommend him as a trainer and the Tarpon Springs storie to anyone. I wear a larger wetsuit that is hard to find and Billy went above to help me find a suit that fit perfectly and it was a very good price! Thanks Billy!!read more
