Tropical Adventures provides extremely qualified and safety conscious instruction for the novice diver! They provide everything you need to enter the sport safely and confidently! I am now doing advanced open water with them and I trust them to ensure that each skill is mastered before they let me tackle the next one! These guys are simply the best!

John the diving instructor is great! He has the knowledge and the sense of humor to make you feel at ease when tackling beginner courses in such a nerve-wracking sport.

About Tropical Adventures Scuba and Travel

The team at Tropical Adventures Scuba and Travel teaches classes, repairs equipment, and plans diving trips, all with a focus on building an active scuba community. Seasoned instructors with NAUI and PADI certification lead beginners from the classroom to the ocean, where they meander through kelp forests and master the art of underwater basket weaving. Experts coordinate travel to premier international and local dive sites such as Catalina Island, aiming to make the three to five yearly trips affordable and fun. The crew also recommends new and used gear for purchase or rental, including Oceanic booties, Tusa masks, and radar equipment that helps divers avoid traveling mermaid salesmen.
