Narcosis Scuba prepares divers of all skill levels for open sea exploration by giving them the education and equipment they need to safely explore the ocean's criminal underworld. An open water certification course outfits submerged swimmers with a designation from the Professional Association of Diving Instructors, the world's top training organization for scuba diving. Depending on whether you choose an evening, daytime, or weekend class, the curriculum spans one to two weeks and consists of two to four classroom sessions, two dives in an enclosed pool, and a weekend on the open water. Narcosis provides the heavy-duty equipment for each class, so students can leave their harpoon guns at home. However, students must supply their own mask, snorkel, fins, booties, gloves, and weight belt—all of which can be rented from Narcosis for an extra charge. Once they've completed the course, aquatic adventurers can freely probe the briny deep on their own and play the fishbone xylophone during its many undersea musical numbers.
Coral growing in brightly hued clusters. Translucent jellyfish floating past verdant, undulating seaweed. Schools of black bar soldierfish swimming in unison during their morning roll call. These are just a few of the myriad sights students at Gulfport Dive Center can see during their aquatic expeditions. Owned by a family of avid divers, the center gathers a community of fledgling sub-aquanauts to explore the waterways of the Sunshine State, whether the staff is training them during classroom sessions and open dives or equipping them with gear from Ocean Pro, LavaCore, and Genesis.
