$249 for a VIP Scuba Package for One ($499 Value)

VIP courses begin with a classroom session (complete with drinks and snacks), followed by one pool-practice session at the student’s own pool or a pool located in Hillsborough or Pinellas County. The course culminates in four dives held over the course of two separate days. The VIP Experience is designed for groups of two to four students, who will consult with their instructor to schedule class times and dive locations that work best for them—though solo students are welcome to purchase and be paired with another person. Students who complete the course will earn their NAUI Scuba Certification. All rental equipment with mask, fins, and snorkel are included in the package, and those who wish to buy their own equipment through Mutiny Sea Sports get a 25% discount.

Mutiny Sea Sports

After years of active involvement with diving and emergency medicine—including jobs training first responders in scuba and public-safety diving—Mike Massaro founded Mutiny Sea Sports to expand his mentorship into recreational diving. Backed by a slew of their own certifications, Mike and his instructors introduce their students to the sport through comprehensive certification courses. The crew also offers continuation courses for advanced divers, including rescue diving and certifications up to Divemaster, which gives students the experience to lead their own diving trips and the authority to make schools of fish stop moving so everyone can see them a little better.

In a Nutshell
