"Test the waters" without the commitment...

During the winter months, we run the try scuba in conjunction with our Open Water class pool session. Please call the shop for dates and times.

Try Scuba is a 1hr program here in Saint Augustine that allows people to see if scuba diving is something they’ll love. It's a great way to give it a test without the commitment of a full scuba certification course.  

One of our qualified, active-status, local Instructors will give you a basic lesson on how to operate the gear, a few underwater hand signals, some safety precautions & of course how to relax & enjoy yourself on scuba gear!  From there, just soak in the experience of weightlessness, hovering upside down, & simply the pleasure of breathing underwater!

You only need to bring a swimsuit & towel, plus a hair tie if you have long hair.

Although we often snag a few pictures both above & underwater, we encourage you to bring an underwater camera if you can.


The fee is $35 for the Try Scuba Experience.  If you end up loving it, $25 will be credited toward your initial equipment required to take the full scuba certification course (mask, booties, fins, snorkel). 

*The gear credit is given if you sign up for a complete scuba certification course here through our dive shop (must be used within 90 days).

We usually run at least one Try Scuba per month.  We only allow a certain number of guests to participate each time so be sure & let us know which date you would like so we can secure your spot!
