When you book a class, we offer 10% off the equipment (above right) for purchase.

Offer is still available after class has ended.

First class is in our on-site classroom, so you won't need your snorkeling gear. 

Now it's time to go for a swim. You will be required to have a mask, snorkel, boots, fins, and a dive suit (above left). All of which can be purchased at the dive shop, prior to the first pool class. 

Your Open Water Dives will be at

The Florida Keys Dive Center

90451 Old Hwy Tavernier, Fl 33070

Saturday: 2 dives - starting at noon

Sunday: 2 dives - starting at 8am



The cost of the class does not include travel or hotel room in The Keys for the Open Water class.

Diving is very weather dependent, therefore, we suggest booking directly with the hotel and not a third party. In our experience, hotels are easier to change the date or cancel the reservation. AirBnB will not let you cancel. We suggest..

$$$$ The Courtyard Marriot

$$$ Marina Del Mar

$$ Creed Side Inn

$$ TRU by Hilton

$ Key Lantern
