Don’t have time to get certified but still want to go SCUBA Diving? Seasport Divers participates in the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program, sometimes called a Resort Class, this program allows Non-Certified Divers to experience the thrill of the underwater world with an Instructor right there by your side. Participate in a short lesson and then perform the skills you learned with the gear on in the pool. Swim around for a while and get comfortable and now your ready for the next step . . . the ocean!! After you complete the FREE Pool lesson you can join us for a one or two-tank Shore Dive or a two-tank dive on the Afternoon Boat Trip. The maximum depth Non-Certified Divers are allowed to dive is 40 feet and the groups are small, not more then 4 non-certified divers to 1 instructor.
