Semi-Private Training - $750 (minimum 2 people - Price is adjusted down as number of students increases)

This format follows all the requirements 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 three to four 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. Five 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.

Private Training - $995 to $1250

This program is the ultimate in Scuba Diver Training. We create an entire course around you. You are the center - the focus of the activity. Unusual work schedule is no problem. You provide the pool and we provide the rest. This course can include (for the additional charges) a complete Dry Suit and/or Nitrox diving course. Think about what that means. Through out the entire course, you will NEVER BE WET OR COLD and be able to extend you time underwater!

In addition to the best materials, the best training program and the most personalized of attention, you get our entire staff to make your experience the most pleasant possible. You get our most experienced professionals. You really need to check this out. It is the very best experience you could hope for when learning to dive.
