Try Scuba/Discover Scuba

Class Description

You can still experience the joys of scuba diving in the clear blue waters of Key Biscayne without being a certified diver. As our most popular class, the Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) program draws individuals from around the world because it is fun, safe and open to individuals of all backgrounds- you just need to be able to swim!

The Discover Scuba Diving program lets you experience the thrill of diving under the direct supervision of a professional scuba instructor.  You begin in the comfort of our heated  pool where you learn basic skills and get comfortable with your equipment.  That same afternoon, you complete two open water dives from our custom dive boats right off Key Biscayne, Miami. We often see turtles, rays, grouper, lobster, parrotfish, angelfish, jacks, eels, plenty of coral and occasional dolphins.

Prerequisites: A bathing suit, towel, the ability to swim and a sense for adventure.

If there is someone in your group that would like to join you but not take the Discover Scuba class, he or she can come snorkeling on the same boat that you will be on for just $119.  For more information about our snorkeling excursions, click here.
