SSI Dive Training at Neptune
Neptune has regular SSI Open Water Diver classes, and offers a wide range of SSI continuing education classes regularly and on demand. The 2017 Open Water Scuba classes have started. The OW checkout dives for the late-winter and spring classes will take place at Ginnie Springs. Once the lake and river are warm enough, the OW checkout dives will be there. Check with the shop for details.
If you're not sure whether scuba diving is for you, SSI offers Try Scuba, a short session that allows you to experience what Open Water Scuba training is like.
Neptune also offers Nitrox, Navigation, Diver Stress and Rescue, and React Right.

Take the SSI Master Diver Challenge
Is 2017 the year for you to earn SSI's coveted Master Diver rating, the highest rating there is for a recreational diver? Ten made it in 2016! Getting your SSI Master Diver card shows that you have the knowledge, skills, and experience to set a positive example for other divers. To reach this pinnacle of achievement, you have to have at least 50 logged dives, have completed 4 specialty courses, and completed the Diver Stress and Rescue course. Those who earn the Master Diver rating by the end of 2017 will be entered in a drawing for an Aggressor Fleet trip, and all will receive an SSI Master Diver challenge coin!
