Scuba Certification

For those seeking an underwater adventure with the highest safety standards

NAUI SCUBA Certifications

We practice the highest safety standards and limit each class in size. All of our dives only take place at the best dive sites in Florida.  Each course can be broken into 4 components: Self study, classroom session(s) (virtual), confined water dives (pool or pool like environment), and open water dives.

Rescue SCUBA Diver

While the Rescue SCUBA Diver course is a serious course, we still make it fun!  This course trains divers in the knowledge and skills to manage risks and effectively handle possible marine problems and  emergencies. Included are: assists, transports, surface rescues and rescues from depth involving both boat- and shore-based skin and scuba divers. Graduates are considered competent to perform assists and rescues in open water provided the diving site and diving situations approximate those of the course, and may use this certification to meet the prerequisite for the NAUI Training Assistant specialty course, NAUI leadership courses and NAUI Instructor course.  Graduates also earn certification in both CPR and First Aid.


Prerequisites: Open Water Certification, 10+ years of age, and your own gear (except tanks)

Day 3 - Boat Trip

  • We complete this phase on 2 nice boat dives.  The first dive consists of the open water training, and then we have a fun celebration dive hunting for shark teeth and fossils!

Enriched Air (AKA Nitrox)  

This is the most commonly used tank fill for SCUBA diving.  Enriched air offers many benefits such as, extended bottom time and shorter surface intervals.  This means more time underwater and less time on the boat when you go SCUBA diving.  During this course, you will learn the additional planning protocols involved to use this air mix.  Then we will complete two fun dives at a local cavern!
