Take the PADI Skin Diver course with The Dive Shop


Learn snorkeling and skin diving techniques including checking buoyancy, surface swimming, clearing water from your snorkel and performing effortless surface dives.

Explore the underwater world from the surface.

The PADI Skin Diver certification helps you get - and keep - your fins wet. While snorkeling is limited to peering down from the surface, skin divers generally venture further than snorkelers, making frequent surface dives to interact with aquatic life, up close and personal.

The Fun Part

The best part is learning to use your mask, fins and snorkel so you don't miss a moment of underwater action. Whether you're looking at your local freshwater lake or the big blue ocean, you'll have a new perspective on just about every body of water. You can use your new aquatic skills to explore a brand new world during an optional open water dive. And, when you've finished the course, you'll get a PADI Skin Diver certification card for your efforts and be ready for your next adventure.


The Gear You Use

The PADI Skin Diver course teaches you to use basic snorkeling equipment including a mask, snorkel, fins, buoyancy control device (BCD), exposure protection like a wet suit and dive weights as needed.

Ask us what equipment you'll use in the course. We have everything you need at THE DIVE SHOP.
