The two-hour Refresher Scuba course is designed for already certified divers who haven't been under the sea in a while, and requires students to bring or rent their own equipment. Discover Snorkel acclimates swimmers as young as 5 to snorkeling in the swimming pool during a two-hour class. Click here to see class schedules.

The 22-hour intensive open-water diving course includes classroom instruction and pool dives, teaching pupils need-to-know knowledge including how to operate masks and tanks, how to dive safely, and how to politely decline scholarship offers from schools of fish. Students in every open-water class must supply their own mask, fins, snorkel, and boots. After finishing the course, each new diver receives a certification card, which attests to mastery of the submarine realm.

Desert Divers

Mike and his son Alex both enthusiastically share their combined 45 years of know-how and love of diving with all who are bold enough to strike out on an underwater adventure! Over the past 30 years, Mike has recruited a staff of dedicated instructors that schools nascent underwater explorers in introductory lessons and intensive scuba-certification classes. The staff members equip students with most necessary gear for the classes, which cover maritime topics ranging from first aid and fish identification to deep diving and how to fashion sleeping octopuses into temporary helmets. Many classes require that participants first take an open-water scuba course, which bestows diving fundamentals and can eventually lead to certification. The center welcomes all past open-water students back for free refresher courses, helping former pupils sharpen their skills in advance of upcoming dives and snorkel-throwing tournaments. To further refine aquatic abilities, Desert Divers leads new graduates out on field trips to such dive-friendly locales as San Carlos, Mexico, and Key Largo, Florida.
