We have a children's program that has received national recognition and only continues to grow and strengthen. From 8 - 15 years of age we offer top-notch courses designed for today's children and tomorrow's future divers. From Bubblemaker to Seal to Junior Open Water Diver and beyond we offer diving opportunities for our young divers. With staff members that are also Boy Scout Merit Badge Counselors we enjoy teaching our local scouts the thrill of scuba diving while earning a merit badge at the same time.
For the non-diver we offer a variety of snorkeling and skin diving classes in addition to selling premium snorkeling equipment.
