There are few better ways to get your basic open-water dive certification than through Rugged Scuba Divers. You will learn the essential dive skills required for your PADI certification as you explore the kelp forests that consistently rank Catalina as one of the top ten dive locations in North America. You will have the opportunity to swim with sea lions, bat rays, moray eels, leopard sharks, and the occasional octopus, just to name a few. The Rugged Scuba Divers program assumes that you have no prior knowledge of scuba diving before registering for this program. You will need to complete the assigned coursework before coming to Catalina. Once on the island, you and the rest of the Rugged Scuba Divers will work with our professional dive staff to learn the finer points of scuba diving and will spend much of your week in the ocean practicing your skills and exploring the waters of Catalina Island's Emerald Bay.
Rugged SCUBA has a minimum class size of 4 participants per week due to staffing requirements. If there are less than 4 participants registered by one month prior to your arrival at camp for your preferred week, we will work with you to find an alternative
