About Us

We are firm believers that a certification does not make you an expert, or even qualified, to dive a particular specialty, but we do believe that pursuing further certifications exposes you to more training, different styles of teaching, and of course, more experience, which ultimately helps you become a better, and safer, diver. We urge you to seek out the best instruction you can reasonably afford.

We offer private and semi-private PADI and IANTD recreational and technical diving instruction. We are fully insured and renewed with PADI and IANTD. We're not a dive shop, and we don't sell gear, so we're not trying to compete with local dive shops or take business away from them. We just want to provide another option for people with more specific needs than can be filled by training with a mainstream shop.

We are currently not providing any dive training in Lake Mead NRA, but can offer referral training, and California open water training.

If you're looking for quality private scuba instruction without the headache of a large class, set schedules, sales pushes, and rushed instruction, give us a call.
