Semi-Private SCUBA diving training – $500 & up


This format follows all the benefits of our Private Course format with one significant difference. There is more than one of you. This is the ultimate Private Party. We still have to coordinate instructors and resources (pools, class times, etc.). This is a format for those with unusual or irregular schedules, looking to train with their friends and have a premium experience through the whole activity. The minimum number of students for this program is two. Numbers of pool sessions are dictated by the skill level and aptitude of the divers. Frequently pool sessions are completed in as few as two or three sessions. In no circumstance will we conduct all pool training in a single day. Our experience has found this to be counter-productive to your long-term learning ability. Four Scuba diving activities are still required and they must be spread over a minimum of two days. We keep these dates flexible in that they can be completed on as your schedule permits.  If you have access to a pool with a depth of at least 8 ft., we can begin right away.  You let us know and we put it together.

This course must have a minimum of 2 people.  The price is adjusted downward if more than three people participate.
