Our Teaching Scuba Diving Philosophy: This is supposed to be safe and fun. We feel it is necessary to give our point of view on dive training as we have noticed some other organizations are misrepresenting some experiences. First understand that most scuba instructors do this because we love it and want to share it with everyone else. We do go to Casino Point at the Dive Park at times and teach as it is a beautiful place with easy access and great facilities. It is condusive to easy success when teaching and has alot of offer. But we also go out on boat charters and are a big advocate of doing beach dives when conditions permit. We believe you should go with an instructor to do all these things for the first time to learn from the proper techniques to do each so that they are safe and enjoyable. We are in Southern California with miles of great shore dive sites that can be enjoyed with greater opportunity because of the easy access with reduced time and money commitments. Learning how to dive in these various conditions with an instructor make divers more prepared and builds stronger diving skills. If you learn how to dive off the shore in So Cal you can dive more and build your self-confidence quicker. You can see almost everything on a shore dive that you can see off of the islands. We only know of one place where you can walk up and down the stairs to get in and out of the ocean. That is fine but that is not all there is to see. Don't equate challenges as being unsafe or dangerous, but rather opportunities to learn from experience professionals. That being said there is as much to be learned on a beach when things are big and rough when you decided not to go in as there is on a calm day when the you can walk right in to the water. If you never go , you will never know. We always want you to enjoy the dives but we also want you to learn how to dive in the various enviroments local to where you live. We are not here to just certify people. We are here to show people how to make diving a part of their lives like it has become to ours. We teach at a more relaxed pace so you can weave scuba in to your life not just block out a weekend to slam it out. If you want that we can do it too because we dive all the time. The main reason we don't do it is because this class is Your class not ours and we want to do what we feel is best for you, not easiest for us. We are not necessarily going to be the cheepest but we are confident that what you pay for will have added value, and be what we would have wanted for ourselves if we were in your place.
Next Local Dive: (If you don't see a date below that works for you let us know when you want to go and we can probably arrange some spots on the boat for you.)
