Scuba Classes

Discover Scuba Diving

Group size is limited to four students with one PADI certified instructor. Spending time verbally reviewing safety skills and the dive equipment is key to your empowerment. This allows you to perform and practice skills until you are so comfortable the skills are second nature to you. Now, when you go to the shore or boat, you can focus on fish and turtles.

Feeling comfortable in the water already, and/or time is limited? You may go directly to the shore dive, receive a complete safety lecture, and go diving! We offer one tank or two! Play games snorkeling and scuba diving in a shallow pool, then head out and dive with the family.

Open Water Certification

This is your first step in becoming really proficient at safe scuba. Lessons are complete and fun! It's a multi-media program designed to enhance your learning. There is an old teaching style where the instructor relays personal experiences that are supposed to enhance your safety because you can learn by their mistakes/experiences. There is the new teaching style of “leave no topic untouched electronically.” We prefer to combine the two teaching systems so that you receive a personalized experiential learning system that is fun!

Open Water Referral

We believe in “overlearning” safety responses in scuba diving. One of the best ways to do so is to learn these skills in a pool class where you get lots of time to practice the correct response. Once you're confident in your responses, venture to beautiful Kauai and finish your certification class in the warm ocean with the sea turtles! Dive from the shore on the first day, and on the second day, hop on the boat and discover Kauai offshore! We are universal instructors and can accept students from NAUI, SSI, SDI, YMCA, NASE, and of course, PADI!

Advanced Open Water

Take five adventure dives in our advanced class in the areas you choose to explore. You can choose from Search and Recovery, Night Diving, Underwater Photography, Boat Diving, Underwater Naturalist, and Drift Diving. Discussions and dives are designed to better hone your diving comfort by experiencing a variety of skill-enhancing experiences. We typically offer it as a combination of boat and shore diving, but we can offer it any way you choose! PADI and Bubbles Below dive instructors both agree that you really need to increase your knowledge and safety skills of deep diving and navigation, so those are required in the advanced class.

Nitrox Specialty Course and Other Specialty Courses

Specialties are designed for a diver to spend more time discussing and practicing a particular area of scuba in-depth (no pun intended). The Nitrox Specialty is the most widely asked for as it can really increase your safety and your bottom time. We offer it by the PADI teaching system of book work, knowledge reviews, video, experience with an instructor, and diving with two tanks of nitrox.

Other specialties we can offer: Deep Diver, Multi-level, Drift, Boat Diver, Naturalist, Peak Performance, Project AWARE, Underwater Hunter, and Solo Diver. Rescue and Divemaster classes can also be scheduled.

Dive Master

Ever wish that you could dive as smoothly as the divemaster? With a few technical improvements or with added awareness, you can make a profound impact on your hydrodynamic ability. Consider allowing us to help you become an easy-moving diver, even in the current. This is done during your normal daily dive charters. If you haven't been diving in a while and would like a safe scuba review before you get on the boat, we're happy to help. Please call and let us know what you would like to work on for your safety and for your enjoyment!
