Raleigh Scuba Classes

life is short; have fun!

Welcome! We LOVE sharing our passion for diving with others, so thanks for being here. Our experienced Scuba Instructors teach beginner, advanced and professional Raleigh scuba classes. Based in the Triangle area, our primary focus is conducting scuba lessons to the highest dive agency standards for skill, safety, & enjoyment- not just pushing you through the training process like many dive centers. If you are taking your first diving lessons, taking an advanced course, or need gear service, our team can help. What sets our dive shop apart is our focused dedication to our students and how THEY learn while making it fun to learn. We have smaller class sizes, conduct longer in-water training sessions, and focus on the skill level of the diver, not just the "completion" of the courses to insure you receive the highest quality training, which enables you to be the best diver possible. You can learn the basic knowledge in your free time with our online eLearning in the privacy of your own home.

We proudly certify through the following agencies: SDI, TDI & PADI

What makes Raleigh Scuba Diving different than other dive shops?

I've been right where you are when I first started. You talked with divers, called your local dive shop & been bombarded with a SLEW of information only to feel totally overwhelmed and finally decide you'll "look into it later" because it seems really complicated. Every diver I've talked with has had a very similar experience. It's true, there is a LOT of information & equipment to go over before you ever get to the actual diving part. With that being said, We created Raleigh Scuba Classes with 3 things in mind:

1 - The underwater adventure is totally worth the effort.

2 - We are huge believers in simplifying our scuba lessons & making them fun.

3 - We provide the most thorough training & service possible while not overwhelming you.

Dive training is NOT complicated but you are preparing to venture into a brand new world. For a frame of reference, astronauts train underwater to help them prepare for outer space, so a little preparation is certainly necessary. Our goal is to simplify the process of getting you dive certification. First and foremost, once you earn a diving c-card it is valid for a lifetime and agencies we teach thru are accepted around the world. Once you get your certification here, you can rent equipment go diving almost anywhere you want.

Our scuba instructors are highly trained and teach everything from open water to Instructor Development Classes (which is required to become an instructor yourself). So if you are just starting your underwater journey, need a refresher course or wanting to pursue becoming a dive professional, we can help you achieve that goal.
