I believe the best way to learn to SCUBA dive is by actually diving. 
With me you'll spend more time underwater actually diving.

You may start your SCUBA Lessons at anytime.
You will progress at your own pace. I don't keep all students in a group. You won't be stuck in a set group. Join any class or any pool session.  Check the Calendar and get on the Roster.

Summer Special.
We have our own private SCUBA Quarry in Nashville.
Only fifteen minutes from down town, just off McCrory Lane and I-40
Get certified in 2 or 3 days.

PADI Certification is performance based. You must comfortably and safely perform all required skills. Some students may require more than 3 days.
Private check-out dives during the week and weekends!
PADI Scuba Certification dives every week all summer long.

Snorkel & Skin Diver Training


Snorkel & Skin Diver Training
Snorkel on you vacation!

The PADI Skin Diver program is an is an excellent pre-training experience for adults and children who want to explore the wonders of the underwater world without getting SCUBA certified.

Successful completion of the PADI Skin Diver course results in PADI  Skin Diver certification.

What is included?

  • Fins

  • Mask

  • Snorkel vest 

  • Extra Bonus Try Scuba in the pool too!

What will you do?
In the pool you'll master skills such as snorkel blast clearing, removing and replacing a weight belt, hand signals & swimming under water. You can then apply what you've learn on a supervised skin dive.  You will even get to try scuba diving in the pool if you want.  

Try Scuba

$25  Try Scuba in Pool  or   PADI Pool Refresher 

This is your chance to try scuba without signing up for class.  Spend a couple hours diving in a large deep indoor heated pool.  If you decide you like scuba, you may deduct the $25 from your PADI scuba certification regular price.  I'll bring an underwater camera so you may take pictures of yourself and friends.  If you have not dived in a couple years you may need a PADI Scuba Refresher. If you have not dived in several years you will need more then a refresher.

Print and fill out the TRY SCUBA form, and bring to the pool.
