Year Round Lessons

In A Heated Pool



Open since 1994, we are the Northshore’s oldest dive facility. Our mission is to train divers that are qualified not just certified. We are proud to be a PADI 5 Star facility, offering small and private scuba classes for a more personal training experience. We have classes from entry level to professional certifications as well as technical and cave diving. Our focus is on certifying divers who are not only comfortable in the water but exhibit excellent buoyancy control skills, trim and environmental awareness. Learning to dive is not just about mastering basic skills as important as they are. It is also about diving as much as possible in a variety of open water settings. This is why our certification trips are 7 dives instead of the usual 4. It’s convenient and cheaper to do ones open water training in a quarry or pond, but as you will learn during training this only qualifies you to dive in similar bodies of water. With our training you get to dive in the freshwater environment and learn to do dives in the ocean from a boat where most of the best diving takes place. We take great pride in the divers we train and many of the divers that take our basic certification continue on to higher levels of training. As a full service dive facility, Coral Reef offers equipment sales, service and rentals, air and nitrox fills and rentals and much more.
