Key Largo Dive Center NAUI Courses

NAUI scuba courses offered by Key Largo Dive Center are conducted in accordance with the guidelines of the National Association of Underwater Instructors. Key Largo has perfect conditions for scuba training: warm water, shallow coral reefs, deep wrecks, and abundant marine life.  NAUI courses are offered as more conventional and detailed classroom/textbook/workbook type course that also incorporate more modern features such as E-Learning which provides an in-depth approach to learning. Our NAUI courses involve more training and instructional time than our conventional PADI courses. This more intensive training is reflected in the course fee due to the higher number of classroom sessions, pool sessions and open water sessions. NAUI courses are conducted only as published. Our courses are not taught by interns. All of our NAUI Instructors and Divemasters are fully certified as such. Our Pro Development Center training schedule allows you to start as a NAUI Scuba Diver and continue your training up through Instructor without interruption. You can also spread out your training to fit your schedule and complete the training one or more certifications at a time and then continue your training in another month’s training cycle.
