Choose Between Two Options
- $199 for a small-group NAUI scuba-certification course package (a $499 value)
- $249 for a VIP semiprivate NAUI scuba-certification course package (a $499 value)
Small-group classes typically accommodate 8–10 students and are prescheduled, whereas VIP sessions require a minimum of two and a maximum of four students and are scheduled at the customer’s convenience, typically at a home pool. VIP students are also provided drinks and snacks, can choose a custom location for the checkout dives, and get an extra lesson in using the Guardian Full Face Mask and Buddy Phone communication system. Courses begin with a classroom session, followed by one pool-practice session at a pool located in Hillsborough or Pinellas County. The course culminates in four dives held over the course of two separate days, and students who complete the course will earn their NAUI scuba certification. All study materials and 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. Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
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.
