Beginning Your Adventure

Scuba diving is serious fun and we want you to enjoy it as much as we do. SSI's family of entry-level scuba and snorkeling programs are designed to get you, your family and friends into the water as quickly as possible, while at the same time, satisfying your individual training needs.

SSI's Personalized Training Approach accelerates the process of making you a serious diver in a way that is comfortable and enjoyable for you. After all, everyone learns at a different pace and has personal objectives for their diving.

Meeting your personal objectives is the job of SSI professional Scuba Schools and Instructors. Whether your goal is to dive on shallow water reefs, deep water wrecks, or any other type of diving, they can create a training program just for you and get you started on a lifetime of exciting adventure.

Your adventure could begin with one of our accelerated beginning programs: Try Scuba or the Passport Diver Program. Or maybe your ready to become a certified diver, then the Open Water Diver Program is for you. Then again, maybe you just need to recapture the feeling of total confidence by updating the diving skills you learned as an Open Water Diver. SSI's Scuba Skills Update is just for you. And SSI's Snorkeling program is full of fun tips and advice to help make snorkeling easier and more enjoyable.

Eight to fifteen year olds can join in the fun of diving too! The Scuba Rangers and Scuba Explorers are scuba-based activities clubs that not only teaches scuba skills, but also goal-setting, self-esteem, discipline and respect for the aquatic environment. Children 10 to 15 can also begin a lifetime of adventure with SSI's Junior Open Water Diver program; an entry-level certification program for kids.
