Our Private Scuba Lessons are perfect for those with tough schedules or who prefer the ultimate in instruction.

We can come to you and teach at your pools starting at just $350 per person for the academic and pools sessions.  Then you can jet off to your favorite destination to finish up.

Want us to come along with you to your destination to complete your dives?  We can do that too.

Or we can do all of your academics, pool dives, and openwater dives in just 2 days using one of our local dive sites.  It is a long weekend and you do have some pre study to do.  But you are done in one weekend with  your own private instructor.

Complete Scuba Certification


Certified in One Weekend!

What to Expect

The PADI Open Water Scuba Class is where your SCUBA adventure begins.  This is where students will learn the basics of how to stay safe underwater.  There are 3 parts to learning to dive.  Home study,  academic and pool sessions, and open water training dives.  Students get a book and DVDs so they can begin their adventure before they get in the classroom.  After the classroom and pool dives students will be able to jump in the open water!

Academic  Instruction

When you sign up for class you will receive your student kit (which is included in the class price) so you can complete your home study, watch videos, and self test.  Then you will review your home study with your instructor and review your tests.  All of this is completed online.  Then you are ready for your weekend of pool dives or weekend of pool dives and openwater dives applying what you learned, and learning the skills you need to dive safely.  When you come to scuba class you will need to bring your student materials.  Plus you will need bathing suit, towel, mask, fins, and a snorkel.   Scuba class is on the weekends, Saturday and Sunday from 8-5 both days.  download more class info

Open Water Instruction

The third phase of your scuba classes involves 4 scuba dives in an open water environment.  All 4 dives are completed in one weekend.  During these scuba dives you will be repeating a few of the skills that you mastered during the pool dives and exploring the dive site with your Instructor Team.  Scuba training dives are offered locally from May till October.  November through April they are in Florida.  Or, if you have a trip already planned, Island Hoppers can help you get the dives completed as part of your vacation!
