We are rated a Perfect “Excellent” on Tripadvisor!

Scuba Outfitters’ PADI Open Water Scuba Course begins at home with PADI’s Online Scuba Class, Next are Two Pool Sessions lasting about Four hours each in our Indoor Heated Pool, and finishes off with four Open Water Dives on the World’s Third Largest Barrier Reef in Key Largo, Florida!

(By choosing to dive in Key Largo and not off Naples, we can offer you a Safer and more Enjoyable experience, that will last a lifetime.)

Pool Sessions are held two evenings over one week from 6-10pm.  We do offer Semi-Private Pool Sessions, based on your schedule, as well.  Most pool sessions consist of less than Six Students per Instructor. (Upcoming Class Calendar)

(Need more time?  No Problem!  A third pool session can be scheduled at no extra cost.  We want you to feel Comfortable and Ready for your Open Water Check Out Dives.)
