Private Scuba Lessons in Key Largo

At Lucky Fish Scuba in Key Largo, we offer private scuba instruction and training for individuals, couples, families or small groups of up to 4 student divers. Finish up those open water training dives or get an advanced certification with our full attention at the pace, timing and dates that work for you.

Our Key Largo reefs are teeming with fish but also relatively shallow, making them easy and interesting places for training. Sea conditions vary from day to day, giving new divers important experience to draw on later.

All of our divemasters are experienced instructors, certified by PADI, the world’s leading scuba diver training organization.

PADI Open Water diver certification

We do not currently offer the full Open Water diver certification course in Key Largo.

What we recommend instead:

Begin your scuba diving journey at home, with a fun online course designed by PADI to learn the basic concepts.

Find a local dive shop to support, and take your time with their Instructor to fit you in dive gear and teach you how to set it up. They'll work with you in the pool for a short swimming assessment, then on to that first magical breath under water!

You'll have plenty of time to through all the skills one by one, applying the knowledge you learned on line.

PADI Open Water referral / certification dives

If you've begun your scuba training at home and completed the pool sessions with your local dive shop, we can help you finish up your certification dives here in Key Largo.

Our instructor will lead you through the remaining skills from the comfort and convenience of Lucky Fish Scuba private charter. Two open water certification dives can be completed in a typical half-day trip.

PADI Advanced Open Water

Ready for the next level of scuba diving? You’ll still need to set aside some time to tackle a bit of online eLearning before starting the training dives here in Key Largo.

But what makes this course so fun is that you get to choose 3 of your 5 training dives based on what you love most about scuba diving -- like exploring a wreck or identifying fish!
