class size


When registering for a scuba diving certification class, divers will choose either private or semi-private instruction.  Semi-private classes will have a maximum of 4 students.


Private lessons guarantee no other divers or groups may register during your scheduled session.


I can accommodate groups of any size as I have several other instructors and dive masters on call to assist with large groups if necessary.

gratuity


Just like other service industries, gratuity is optional and 10-20% is industry standard.  Boat captains and crew do not share gratuities with scuba diving instructors or guides.  


Suggested boat crew or guide gratuity $10-$20 per diver.  Suggested instructor gratuity $50-$100 per student.

Advanced Open Water


For the Advanced Open Water courses I do not recommend using E-Learning as the cost is high and knowledge development is minimal.  


Advanced students must only complete 5 Knowledge Reviews for each associated dive they will be completing including deep and navigation dives which are required.  

Specialties

Open water


Open Water certification consists of three phases: Knowledge Development, Confined Water sessions 1-5, and Open Water dives 1-4.  This license or certification allows entry level divers to dive without the supervision of a dive professional up to 60 ft.


When registering for an Open Water class in Fort Lauderdale, divers must choose E-Learning or Traditional and private or semi-private lessons.

Rescue divers must have minimum 20 logged dives, current CPR and First Aid certification, and be at least 12 years old.

flexible scheduling


One of the biggest advantages of working with me is my flexibility around your schedule.  Classes do not necessarily have to run on consecutive days.


Classes do not run on set schedules each month but once a class has been booked it will appear on the Calendar page. 


Scheduling is on a first come, first serve basis.  The first to make deposit for a date requested will guarantee boat charter and instructor availability.  


A $100 deposit is required per student when making a reservation.  The balance is due on the first scheduled meeting day of that class.  For questions regarding availability please Contact Me.

Group Discounts


Scuba diving lessons have never been more affordable! When students register to take a scuba diving certification course together, divers will receive a group discount.  Save big by taking scuba diving lessons together with family and friends.

Group discounts apply for certification courses only.

All inclusive pricing


All inclusive pricing means just what it sounds like.  All course materials, rental Equipment, park admission fees, boat charters, and final certification processing fees are included with all scuba diving Classes.  Only tax and gratuity are excluded from the prices displayed.


The cost of a scuba diving lesson or certification in Fort Lauderdale is determined by length of course and costs involved  Personally I much prefer boat diving as the dive sites in Fort Lauderdale accessible by boat are far better than those by shore.


My prices run pretty close with competitors however please note this a much more personal and flexible experience.  Also my class prices are all inclusive meaning the price you see is the price you pay.  No tricks.  No gimmicks.  No hidden fees or required additional purchases.


Scuba divers on a budget or looking to get certified quickly should take advantage of training options available at Tigertail Lake.  Scheduling scuba diving Classes at Tigertail saves costs by reducing the amount of necessary boat charters and thus the final price.

How much does it cost to go scuba diving in Fort Lauderdale?
