Urgent Classes? We can often help

If you're planning a vacation and need to sign up for a SCUBA Class Fast, we understand the urgency of your situation and are here to assist. Most of these classes are referral courses, meaning you complete the academic and pool training with us, and then perform the ocean check-out dives at a different location. As you explore your options, you'll likely come across these terms frequently.
