In this Plano scuba certification you’ll learn everything you need for open water scuba diving and be able to dive anywhere in the world, up to 60 ft with a buddy! We even offer a completely FREE Nitrox course with all of our open water course.

This is a popular choice for those going on vacations to Florida, Mexico, Grand Cayman or any other tropical destination. You’ll be blown away by the life and color underwater.
Freshen Up Your Scuba Skills
For current scuba divers in North Texas, we know that there can be a long period of time between your dive trips, that’s why we offer a Scuba Refresher. This course allows you to brush up on your skills before jumping back in.
But the adventure doesn’t stop there! Advanced Adventure and Rescue Diver scuba certifications are available for those who want more knowledge and skills for their underwater endeavors.
Our Advanced Adventure course gives divers a taste of five specialty courses and certifies divers to dive up to 100 ft deep! The navigation and deep dives are required but students can choose between night diving, buoyancy, search and recovery, boat diving, drift diver and more for their other three dives to complete their training.
The Rescue Diver course is a favorite among the diving community. It trains you to be prepared in the unlikely event of a scuba emergency, whether it’s yourself, your buddy, your family member or another diver on your trip. Understanding diving safety and rescue techniques is a important step in your diver training and is a stepping stone to become a Master Scuba Diver or Divemaster.
Scuba Adventures is committed to enhancing your dive experience, so we offer a variety of specialty courses that will help you become a safer diver and expand your horizons.
Our Advanced Buoyancy course aims to teach you to have greater control underwater which will enhance your dive enjoyment and help leave the underwater environment as we found it.
The Boat Diver, Deep Diver, and Altitude Diver courses offer more in-depth training so you can be prepared for whatever dive adventure you can imagine.
Interested in diving for more than recreation? Scuba Adventurers offers both an Intro to Tech Diving course and a Divemaster course to take you to the next level.
