The The Dive Shop's instructors, drawing from Scuba Schools International's programs, teach water-safety skills to fledgling divers and swimmers of all ages. Classes and activities range from the Scuba Rangers club—where kids aged 8–12 learn to snorkel and scuba dive from the safety of a pool—to open-water dives, swimming lessons, and more advanced stress-and-rescue dive sessions, during which instructors turn dog paddlers into almost-mermaids, minus the pet octopuses.
At Dive Educators, the team of certified instructors works to uphold the center's SSI Diamond status. That means everything from helping newcomers get their feet wet in the heated waters of the center's 25' x 50' pool to teaching more seasoned divers advanced skills such as technical diving in the pool's 20' x 25' x 10' dive well. To supplement the in-water curriculum, the instructors have two classrooms where students can complete coursework and test the waterproofness of a Power Point presentation.
Once you strap on scuba gear, it feels like anything is possible. Those flippers and oxygen tank allow you to explore an underwater reef, investigate the remains of an historic wreck, or put a new twist on Casual Friday. More than anything, they open up whole new worlds—worlds you would never be able to see if you were stuck on land.
The certified instructors at Dive! Dive! Dive! know this, and they've made it easier than ever for students to learn the ins and outs of scuba diving. Aside from training students to dive, they sell all the necessary gear, repair broken equipment, and host dive trips across the Caribbean.
Start by getting your feet wet in a Discover Scuba class; by the time you've completed the subsequent classes, you'll have progressed through open-water certification and journeyed to West Palm Beach or Panama City for an ocean dive.

Dolphin Dive Center owner and master diver Tim Bridgham has a philosophy a lot of people can relate to: we spend much of our lives standing on our feet, sitting on our butts in chairs, or sleeping—so getting in the water can be a blissful alternative. As a full-service dive center, Dolphin Dive is a place where students and seasoned divers can get all their gear, as well as the knowledge to put it to good use. Beginners can splash into the heated, indoor pool to get the hang of breathing underwater during the try scuba course, while more seasoned divers and mermen in disguise can take the advanced open water class.
