Choosing the right Instructor
So many factors go into successful scuba training. From detailed academic knowledge to firsthand diving experience, a skillful instructor makes all the difference. At Soto Scuba Academy, we understand the importance of safe, individualized training. Operated by an experienced instructor, we offer a variety of courses aimed at bolstering your diving knowledge and skill in a fun yet safety-focused environment. We go the extra mile to make sure the environment is relaxing & never rushed so you get the most out of your training.
Diver Certification Classes
When you enroll with us, we stay dedicated to your success every step of the way. Your instructor guides you from initial registration and documentation to your final certification dive. Along the way, we facilitate detail-oriented online classes, quizzes, videos, and 4 open-water checkout dives. This combined approach allows us to ensure your safety and more accurately assess your skills.
Comprehensive Diving Education
Throughout your training, we fully cover each and every aspect of the scuba process. In addition to your general academic courses, we also provide intensive training about equipment, dive theory, and the physics of diving. During these courses, we also conduct pool dives as a way to test your gear and sharpen your skills in a controlled environment. From there, we take several trips to open-water environments in preparation for your final certification.
Our instructors take a personalized approach to scuba training. Though all of our courses cover pertinent diving information, we take your knowledge and skill level into consideration when crafting your training program. With private, semi-private, and group options, we offer class styles tailored to your comfort level. Additionally, we customize lessons for special groups, including scouts, youth groups, church groups and family outings.
