  Class Description

Simply the quickest and easiest way to get PADI Scuba Certified with South Beach Dive and Surf Center. 

Step 1:
Pick a start date below and pay for your class. You will receive your e-learning link and access pass within 24 hours
(see upcoming classes below).

Step 2:
Complete the leaning portion of the class in the comfort of your home (or anywhere).        

Step 3:
Come do the pool session and open water training dives. Too easy mate!

Here's what you schedule will be:

At 8:00am on the first day we will take you straight to the pool and go over all the skills that you will need to know before proceeding to the ocean.  After the pool session we go back to the classroom where you will hand in your on line course completion form.  We give you a very brief quiz just to make sure it was you who did the class on line.  Your day will finish at approximately 2:00pm.

The second day you meet at South Beach Divers at 10:00am to depart for John Pennekamp Marine Sanctuary in Key Largo for the first two open water dives.  This beautiful location boasts the largest living coral reef in North America.  We are the only Miami Dive Center that includes two dives in Key Largo as part of the certification course.  Return time is 7:00pm.

On the third and final day, you meet at South Beach Divers at 7:30am to complete your final two open water dives off the coast of Miami Beach. You get to dive on one of the more than 70 shipwrecks that lay right off the coast of Miami.  Upon returning (and passing) you will be issued a temporary certification card so you can start diving right away.  We process your PADI certification card online so you will get your permanent license in as little as 7 days and it can be sent anywhere in the world.  You will also be qualified to take the PADI Advanced class as well numerous specialty classes like Wreck Diver and Underwater Photographer.  All students that graduate will receive a $50 credit towards the next class if taken within 30 days.

* There is a class orientation the day before the class to meet your instructor, buy any personal gear that you need and be fitted for your SCUBA for the class.  Arrangements can be made if you cannot attend the orientation.

  Upcoming Classes
Friday through Sunday year round.  We also offer two weekend classes during the summer months. If our group class schedule does not fit yours we also offer private classes .If you have four or more in your group we will make a customized schedule just for you. Whatever your needs, we have the staff to make it happen.
