Discover Scuba Diving

3 hours

If you have always wanted to check out scuba without committing to a whole weekend of training this is the class for you. This is a brief classroom session and a closely supervised dive in the Gulf of Mexico with all gear included. If you know how to swim and want to explore the undersea realm we’d be happy to take you! The dives will be done at the St Andrews State Park in the shelter of the rock jetties. Divers come here to dive from all over the Southeast. There are Rays, mullet, groupers, sheapshead, flounder, urchins anemones, spadefish, redfish crabs snails and more. This is a great experience for people without the 3 days to dedicate to a full certification class. Many of our DSD students enjoy it so much they plan their next visit around getting Openwater certified! This class is fairly contingent upon good weather and tides, please call in advance to schedule it! Ages 12 and up only due to the size of the dive gear.
