N26 46.997 W 080 02.626 900 E. Blue Heron Blvd. West Palm Beach, FL 33404 This is an amazing shore dive in the beautiful saltwater ocean inlet of Riveria and Jupiter right in the West Palm Beach (South Florida about 2.5 hours from Disney) area. This dive is famous for clear waters, beautiful coral and tons of life under the water. Expect to see things like Star fish in many colors, octopi, urchins, hermit crabs, Dartfish, Blennys, trunk fish, horesehoe crabs, yellow garden eels, bandtail sea robin, striated frog fish (one of the few places in the world these animals have ever mated in front of divers! Strange dance they do is really neat to watch), tons of other reef fish and if we are very lucky and we keep our eyes peeled we will see tiny sea horses and maybe a dolphin too! To say this is AMAZING is an understatement!

dentonLake Denton -

at 27.55 70 N, 81.48 95 W, 790 Lake Denton Rd., Avon Park, FL 33825, is a PRISTINE 66-acre lake spring water filled with many fun stuff like tropical curious little sun fish, striped bass, and even a tractor and other fun treasures with guidlines to see the fun. The very curious bluegill fish are everywhere love to come right up to your mask about 3 cm. away to check you out. Some people like to bring hot dogs or cat foot to feed them. We do. There are about 4 HUGE turtles here too! Several small sunken boats (mini shipwrecks) make this adventure exciting as you never know just what your going to see in Lake Denton. The water is crystal clear beautiful and a wonderful safe freshwater dive. There is no current and the water is clear and nice.

DeLeon Springs Florida State Park -
deleon

29 08.24N, 841 22.08W, 601 Ponce DeLeon Blvd., DeLeon Springs, FL 32130 This is like diving in a swimming pool with a few turtles and tons of tiny tropical fish. The water temp is 72 degrees here in this freshwater florida spring year round. There is allot of history in this great dive spot including the DeLeon Spring herself. Once an indian ritual ground and later famed as the real fountain of youth- this famous swimming spot was once the healing waters of a major Florida resort in 1862. Shards of terra cotta material from the original healing center can still be found in the spring. Many folks thought they got their cure here. Maybe you will too. It is crystal clear spring water and very safe and fun dive spot. Comfortable for beginners and has all the amenities you could want, huge bathrooms, picnic tables, small history center and a great 18th century old spanish sugar mill that now serves as a great restaurant where you can make your own pancakes. Great for lunch after the dive.

Site Coming Soon: Blue Springs State Park opens March 15th.

The Training Part:

Our team of experienced PADI America's and NAUI professionally trained and certified Instructors & Divemasters provide the training to understand everything you need tohave a comfortable safe and fun dive adventure. Please keep in mind this is just one discovery dive and does not mean you will be certified to dive. However, if you want to get certified to dive this first dive will count as dive #1 of the 6 dives required for the course. You will also be able to save yourself $50 with your coupon on any class you choose. Click here to check out our training options: Lessons. Scuba Lessons Inc. has programs to learn scuba from ages 8 and up! Scuba is great family fun!

Scuba Lessons, Inc. has an online store for all your scbua gear too. For this program you are not required to provide any gear, however you may wish to purchase your own personal mask, fins, snorkel and boots which can also be found as a very affordable package in the online store.

Discovery dive includes a group video of the experience which will be posted online and you will be e-mailed a link to download this video within 3 days after your dive. We will also leave this video link accessible for you to download, share on facebook, tweet or u-tube for up to 3 months.

You will spend about 1 hour going through the basic training session first. This will include:

  1. Safety "rules" of diving (no breath holding, air consumption, buddys, etc.)
  2. Basic pressure and boyles law science (simple)
  3. Basic equipment overview (what is what and what does it do)
  4. How to breath, clear, purge, remove and replace your regulator
  5. How to read your guages (ecspecially the air guage)
  6. How to "equalize" your ears to prevent any discomfort
  7. How to clear any water from your mask while your underwater
  8. Basic bouyancy and BCD (that vest divers wear) use

Then we are going to do the actual "adventure dive" we will film the experience from your training all the way to your dive and any cool life that show up for a visit while were down. An Instructor will lead the dive and you will have one to two divemasters following all of the divers in the group from the rear. We will swim in buddy pairs one after another behind the leader. Be sure to listen for clinking sounds as that is the instructor showing you something cool! You may bring your own underwater camera if you have one for this experience. The dive it self will last between 20 and 40 minutes.

After the dive we will go over a few more "safety rules" such as not boarding an airplane for 24 hours after your dive.
