 (IDC) Instructor Development Course


Congratulations to Marc, and Dawn. They are the latest group of students to successfully complete the Instructor Development Course and graduate as PADI Open Water Scuba Diving Instructors. Under the watchful eyes of Course Director Barbara and Master  Instructor Sal. Our excellent OW Instructors successfully navigated the grueling eight (8) days IDC and with confidence took on the two (2) days PADI Instructor Exam involving written examinations, practical skills, open water, and confined water skills/assessments, and oral presentations. Congratulations folks! We wish you continued success as you continue your diving career.

Wreck diving Florida  at it's finest.

There are several amazing wrecks that offers a extensive number of different opportunities to expand your dive experience. In Florida, you really must be an advanced open water diver to participate in many of the wreck diving adventures because most of our wrecks are at deeper depths.  We recommend getting your wreck specialty certification to be ready to fully appreciate these dives.  Additionally, we are offering the wreck specialty (optionally) with enriched air specialty as a package.  Other recommendations are for  Peak Performance Buoyancy, and Deep Specialty. 

You Are Welcome to Play in our playground.



Florida has more than a thousand miles of coastline. The enormous variety in marine habitats and types of dive sites has made Florida one of the most popular dive destinations for divers around the world for decades. The only natural living coral reef in North America is found offshore of South Florida and the Florida Keys. Our great state also offers opportunities for shore-entry dives, wreck dives, spear fishing, lobstering, treasure hunting, and snorkeling. Divers can even explore caves and caverns in freshwater springs and lakes.
