During the four-week class, students study course materials before practicing their new-found skills in a heated pool.

Courses include all materials, boat fees, and equipment, except for divers’ masks, fins, snorkels, boots, gloves, and whistles, which can be purchased at a discounted rate. See the class schedule.

Aquanautics Dive

To put Aquanautics Dive’s status as a PADI 5-star dive center and instructor training facility in perspective, it helps to remember that there are more than 6,000 PADI facilities across the world. Each one would love to have the organization’s prized 5-star rating for just its dive center or instructor training facility; Aquanautics Dive boasts both. Add in the center’s designation as a DAN Training Center, and you begin to understand the scope of experience and training possessed by PADI Course Director Jeff Mills and his staff. On the facility’s extensive class schedule, aspiring open-water divers, rescue divers, and divemasters alike can find a class that suits their needs. In addition to teaching students how to dive safely, Aquanautics Dive’s staff helps further their progress by renting out equipment and organizing charter boat trips to dive sites such as old shipwrecks.
