Scuba Courses

As an instructor, I set high standards for myself and my students. I believe that dive instruction should do more than just meet the minimum requirements established by the certifying agency.

I believe that a solid foundation of skills helps a diver be more comfortable in the water, and have more fun every time they dive.

I currently offer the following courses.

Scuba Diver

The NAUI Scuba Diver course is your first step in the underwater adventure. The course gives you the basic knowledge and skills you need to interact safely with equipment, dive buddies and the aquatic environment. Read more →
