I cannot recommend this place enough. We got our dive certification here and, I’ll be honest, I was nervous. But Brian and the whole team were so great and such a blast to be around and learn from! Great dive community that I can’t wait to be a part of. Everyone is so friendly, knowledgeable and loves what they are doing and it shows.

Training was fun I learned alot fom the instructors, I dont think I have any unanswered questions I've asked them. The Instructors were funny and definitely seemed like they where having some fun, which made the course seem less stressful. The water was really good it seemed like to me it was +13ft visibly.

I took the open water dive class and it was really challenging. I would have given up any number of times, but the support and encouragement from the instructors and the other staff at Sonoma Coast Divers got me through the certification process. My whole immediate family are certified so I am really excited to go diving together as a family now! While I have been known to complain how hard the course was, I also have to admit the instructors made it a lot of fun and did a great job building camaraderie among all of the participants. It really was a great experience!

Wonderful training with super knowledgeable instructors! Can’t say enough good things about getting open-water certified with Sonoma Coast Divers! I definitely got nervous a few times and they eased my fears and helped me feel totally comfortable exploring the ocean in ways I’ve dreamed about since childhood! Can’t wait to use these skills I’ve learned on my next oceans adventure!!next trip

About Sonoma Coast Divers

After leading expeditions in search of underwater treasure, the instructors of Sonoma Coast Divers show their students how to cook and eat the spoils—abalone. They try to conclude each of their abalone diving classes with a group picnic, where everyone can compare their catch in hopes of snagging a record-size shell. Persistent hunters can even compete in the autumn's abalone cook-off, part of a Halloween celebration that includes subaquatic pumpkin carving.

These special events highlight the dive venue's dual emphasis on community and adventure. Whether they are hosting a scuba certification class, a Stress & Rescue course, or a simple air-fill service, the staff freely shares their passion for oceanic exploration. Their training pathways safely transform patrons from first-time pool divers into instructor-level dive masters. By filling their curriculum with specialty courses—such as night diving, wreck diving, and bubble collecting—they inspire guests to pursue different disciplines. They also plan several trips for all skill levels, guiding tours through local kelp forests and planning weeklong retreats to Caribbean islands.
