Try Diving in a Day

SSI Try Dive or the PADI Discover Scuba Diving Programs

We offer a half-day Scuba Diving Adventure for those who would like to experience the underwater world without committing to a full certification course. Learn some basic skills and then go for a fun dive all in a matter of a few hours. Beginners learn to dive in the nearby Half Moon Bay. The pool-like conditions of this shallow bay offer beach access and provide great conditions to learn diving through action in a calm, natural environment.

Additional recreational dives with your instructor are optional at $55 per dive.

Open Water Courses

Become a Certified Diver

Already decided you love diving? Then it’s time to get certified! Open Water courses require a minimum of three days’ work both in the classroom and in the water. Our instructors teach you dive skills and theory using PADI materials, and then you can practice what you’ve learned in Half Moon Bay during your confined water skills training. After that, it’s time to get out into deeper waters for your four open water training dives. This course will open your eyes to a whole new world underwater and provide you with the skills you need to be a safe, smart, and prepared scuba diver anywhere in the world.
