Full certification is not available at this time due to the season. Once the weather warms back up, we will be continuing full certification courses. In the mean time, if you are going on vacation, we offer the PADI Referral program where you complete your classroom and poolwork with us, then finish up while on vacation. Check out our schedule for the next available dates.
