NAUI Scuba Diver Course

UPDATE: We are relocating our shop to the greater Tampa/Clearwater/St. Petersburg area this summer! We will still have instructors in the Fayetteville area but the physical shop will move at the end of July. We have a few classes left before the move so call the shop if you would like to get certified in the next month or so.

Your underwater adventure begins! Imagine watching the water level move up your mask as you slowly go below the surface - and continue to breathe! It's the most exciting feeling imaginable and yours when you become a NAUI Scuba Diver!

Scuba Diver is our entry level scuba certification course during which you will learn the fundamental knowledge and skills to safely scuba dive in open water. When you complete your class you and your buddy will be free to explore and discover the many wonders of the underwater world…and, you will have earned a NAUI Scuba Diver certification card – the most respected diver certification card in the world!

Come on and dive in…a lifetime of fun, adventure, memories, experiences, and new friends awaits you!

What You Will Learn

Your instructor will teach you about dive equipment, the science of diving, responsible diving practices and the environment. You will also learn many skills in the water with practice time for your safety and comfort; and complete your training with a minimum of five open water dives.

How Do You Get Started?

As long as you are 10 years or older and in good physical condition, you can enroll in a NAUI Scuba Diver course.

How much does it cost?

The NAUI Open Water Diver Course costs $425 per student for a group class and private courses are available. We schedule students together for group classes whenever possible unless a private class is specifically requested. The tuition covers all books, certification card, online training, classroom training, pool sessions, instructor fees, and scuba rental gear. You will be expected to provide your own personal dive gear to include a mask, snorkel, fins, and booties. If you do not own your personal gear it can be purchased from our shop at a special student rate. The only other cost is the quarry entrance fee (typically $20 per day for a total of $40) is an additional fee paid directly to the quarry. Military and Public Service discounts are also available for the course.

What's Next?

Once you become a certified diver, perhaps you want to further your training with an Advanced Scuba Diver or Nitrox Diver course? Whatever your scuba and skin diving needs, we can help you reach your goals!
