Learn To Dive In The Florida Keys

Description:

The ocean is a world of color and quiet, exploration and discovery. One of nature’s greatest wonders is a living coral reef, and the only one in the continental United States parallels the 126-mile length of the Florida Keys.

What better place to learn to scuba dive?

For entry-level, recreational diver certification, plan to allow three to five days for training.

Remember: once you're certified, you are certified for LIFE!

Day 1 - Florida Keys


Okay, so you've decided to try a new sport - in one of the HOTTEST destinations for world-class diving. My suggestion: train at a location in the Middle Keys, to allow for day trips east and west of Marathon, around classtime.
Important considerations when researching professional dive operations include determining value versus price, asking what rental equipment is included in the cost and whether or not you receive personalized, one-on-one service and training. Cheaper price does not always mean the same quality experience. Scuba diving training is a sport for life, why would you scrimp on that?

A day at the pool, then on to the ocean for training ... you'll likely get a lunch break, or be finished early afternoon. Head to No Name Key for some world-famous pizza for a surface interval you won't forget.
