PADI Scuba Diver Course

Sunsation Divers ~ Scuba Diving, Scuba Instruction, Dive Lessons, Training, Snorkeling, Skin Diving, SDI ~TDI, MDEA, PADI, Online Training, eLearning, Manatee Tours, Encounters, Swimming ~ Tampa, Tampa Bay, Crystal River, Clearwater, Ocala, Gainesville, Orlando, Port Richey, St. Petersburg, and Tarpon Springs Florida (FL)



Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn Scuba Diver certification. If you are between 10 and 14 or have a child between these ages, there is a Junior Scuba Diver program available. If you are not in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water this course is not for you. Some medical conditions require written OK from your doctor before participating.

This course requires less time than the Open Water Diver course, covering only the first three of five sections of knowledge development, the first three of five pool sessions, and the first two of four open water training dives, resulting in a limited certification. Particularly if you expect to go scuba diving primarily in the company of a dive guide or if you have limited time to devote to scuba certification, consider becoming a Scuba Diver.

Scuba Divers are qualified to:

  • Dive under the direct supervision of a Divemaster, Assistant Instructor or Instructor to a maximum depth of 12 metres / 40 feet
  • Obtain air fills, rent or purchase scuba equipment and participate in other diving activities as long as they have the required supervision
  • Continue their dive training and complete Open Water Diver certification and other courses such as Project AWARE and equipment specialty courses
  • Upgrade to Open Water Diver whenever you want! With less time than the Scuba Diver course takes, you can make the jump to Open Water Diver certification and start scuba diving independently whenever time allows

We certify divers using the DAN, EFR, MDEA, NASE, PADI, SDI and TDI, systems of diver education. We are Charter Boat Training Facilities for PADI international and International Training, (SDI and TDI). All dive courses and certifications we teach are recognized worldwide.
