Phoenix Scuba’s fleet of expert instructors lead already-certified divers through advanced courses in the comfort of an outdoor pool and Lake Pleasant. An informative evening class kicks off the Advanced Open Water diver course, preparing aquanauts for the upcoming five adventure dives designed to acclimate them to more complex underwater environments. After scouring the bottom of Lake Pleasant during a deep dive and studying the progressive techniques mastered by foam noodles during the peak-performance buoyancy dives, students aged 12 and older receive certification proving their merit as a PADI advanced diver.

Alternatively, the Rescue Diver course equips swimmers with the know-how to prevent and rectify subaquatic mishaps. After three classroom meetings and practice sessions in the pool, students plunge into the lake to learn how to save panicky or unresponsive divers. Guests also learn to self-rescue in the unlikely event that things get too intense during Atlantis-citizenship tryouts.

Phoenix Scuba

By their estimate, Kelly and Steve Fischer have taught thousands of people how to scuba-dive. As the course director and IDC staff instructor, respectively, at Phoenix Scuba, they draw from more than a decade of expertise to lead a team of master dive instructors, certified open-water instructors, and assistant scuba instructors. These coaches all follow the PADI curriculum to teach students basic through advanced diving skills, such as navigating underwater or bartering with dolphins. Open-water and advanced open-water certification courses lead the way with hands-on lake dives, and can open the door to specialized courses such as rescue diver or NITROX enriched air certifications.

Phoenix Scuba's instructors don't just limit their instruction to local waters: the school has also led extended trips to dive sites in the waters of Belize, Grand Cayman, Cozumel, and Fiji, among others.
