Dive Certification Courses
I am an active Open Water SCUBA Instructor offering all PADI courses from Open Water through Divemaster including a number of specialty courses, in a private, feedback-driven environment. I tailor each course to fit perfectly with your group, schedule, learning style and needs.
This introductory course will help you get your feet wet, literally and figuratively. Build a solid foundation of knowledge and skills to become a safe and proficient diver.
In this course, you explore which types of diving really wet your whistle, and gain critical experience in deeper water and navigation. Choose your own adventure!
If you are looking to become a professional diver, Divemaster is the first step in that process. Learn planning, guiding and emergency protocol, and go pro!
Are you already certified and ready to get back in the water? Take a refresher course to review important theory, practical information and skills.
Never tried diving before? This program will give you all the information and skill practice you need to try your first breaths underwater! No course commitments, giving it a try!
If you would like to dive even deeper into a passion of yours, a specialty certification course will help you explore those options. Specialties available include Deep, Night, Underwater Photography and more.
Emergency First Response® Courses
These non-diving courses address a wide range of skills, including primary care (CPR for adults and children and AED use) and secondary care (first aid). Important knowledge for everyone, diver or not.
“I can't imagine having learned how to dive with anyone else. Alex helped me fall in love with scuba diving. I had such a positive experience learning how to dive from Alex that I returned to Central America to dive with him again 6 months later.”
- Brittney, Open Water 2016
“I'm old and have taken a lot of classes, both professional and recreational. Alex was one of the best instructors, of any subject, that I ever had.”
- Keith, Open Water 2018
“Alex was attentive, knowledgable, and passionate about diving. He is a gifted instructor! Would definitely recommend Alex to anyone looking to learn scuba and have a great vacation. I can't say enough positive things about my experience in his class.”
- Alice, Open Water 2015
