After learning about diving techniques in the classroom, students move to the pool for five sessions to practice their new skills. Once they’ve gotten their sea-legs, they head to the open water for four dives, which together earn divers their open-water certification. Groupon holders must buy or rent equipment for the open-water dives (equipment is provided during the pool sessions).
Gulfport Dive Center
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 Aqualung, Sherwood, and Akona.
Dennis along with the rest of the staff are incredible and make you feel very comfortable. As a military member, I've attended many training courses and will vouch for their professionalism and competency. This is the place to get instructed and certified along with being provided the opportunity to purchase any equipment you can think of for diving at a great price in their store.
