Start or Continue Your Diving Adventure Today!


Being a certified scuba diver is an amazing privilege that allows you to visit and explore the undersea world. Our classes are taught by the high standards and guidelines of Scuba Schools International (SSI), providing you with an opportunity to acquire and develop the proper knowledge and skills to become a confident, experienced, and safe diver. SSI certification is recognized worldwide and all divers are guaranteed the consistent integrity of the program.

You can't become a safe and comfortable scuba diver just by reading some online material and being shown skills a couple of times. Learning to be a diver and becoming a better diver requires practice. You develop Comfort through Repetition of skills, under supervision. The more repetitions you have working on your skills, the better prepared you will be to use those skills when needed.

Providing the most complete and enjoyable courses available is our goal, and our reputation stands firm in quality, customer service, and satisfaction. Neptune has been training divers for nearly 60 years! Come by for a visit and shop tour, and start your diving adventure today!
