LIGHTHOUSE DIVING CENTER
SCUBA COURSES

--- TEACHING SCUBA FOR 36 YEARS ---

Lighthouse Diving Center is one of the oldest SCUBA Schools in the United States, with tens of thousands of certified divers having gone through our school.  Many industry professionals originally learned SCUBA diving from lighthouse, or were former employees of lighthouse.

When you choose Lighthouse Diving Center, you have chosen the school the SCUBA Pros have used and trusted.  The Lighthouse course is not a short-cut course.  Our courses are full certification courses where knowledge and training are emphasized.  Our goal and mission is to build confidence in our students, and reward with the SCUBA Open Water Diver certification card as the recognition of successful completion of this intensive training.

Further, our training is fun!  It feels good to be confident in the water with your equipment and skills, and a student doesn’t get that with short-cut programs.  Harry Truitt was the very first Lighthouse instructor and has set the standard for quality instruction since 1972.  When you sign up for a Lighthouse SCUBA course, you have chosen a quality SCUBA course dedicated to your safety and enjoyment.

THE LIGHTHOUSE "LEARN TO DIVE" PROGRAM

Our Instructors teach either NAUI, PADI or SDI International Certification programs

HOW LONG?

Our program combines classroom and pool time two different ways:

  • The Three Week course runs 2 evenings per week from 6:30 to 10:30pm with open water dives on the final weekend.

  • Weekend classes are conducted over three weekends (see schedule for breakdown) open water dives being the last weekend.  

Both options are offered in our three locations. Our classroom sessions utilize an internationally-recognized standard outline that will teach the academics of SCUBA through interactive classroom and pool sessions. The system requires the current textbook system for each student enrolled and a minimum of one video/DVD per person.  Online Academic Training is available with certain classes, so you can learn at your own pace. Private Lessons (one-on-one with you and the Instructor) at your own pace and schedule, are available at special rates for you or your family/group (one to four persons per instructor).

POOL

  • Our pool sessions are taught each evening in an indoor, heated, full-size pool to insure your enjoyment of the weightlessness of inner space as you learn the easy, fun and practical skills of diving.

  • Our large pool allows the room for our small classes to learn the SCUBA skills without interference normally found in a smaller training pool.

OCEAN DIVES (OPEN WATER TRAINING)

The completion of the class/pool sessions leaves you ready and prepared for the experience of your life! Our four open water training dives are done in Puget Sound, giving you the opportunity to use your newly acquired diving skills in the open water environment and prepare you for continuing education programs such as Advanced Diver, Rescue Diver, Divemaster and other Specialty Programs like Night Diver, Wreck Diver, Underwater Digital Photographer and local dive trips with your Lighthouse Instructor.  You may also purchase an upgrade to learn and dive oxygen-enriched Nitrox on your open water dives.

WHY LEARN WITH US?

  • Our teaching staff is a dedicated group of professionals chosen for their skill and approach to safe, fun and enthusiastic Scuba instruction. Our instructors are qualified to train and certify divers using the internationally recognized Lighthouse instruction system in conjunction with over 38 years of world-wide diving experience.

  • Our Three Week and Two Weekend programs ensure you get maximum time in class and pool to ensure you have an enjoyable and safe experience during your Open Water dives.

EQUIPMENT

  • We provide all necessary state-of-the-art SCUBA equipment: Tanks, BCD, Regulators with Octopus and combination gauges, 7mm 2-Piece cold water wetsuits with hood, and weight belts.** Dive Computer Upgrade available.

  • As individual requirements, fit and preferences vary, each student is required to provide their own approved personal snorkeling gear, which consists of mask, snorkel, fins, boots and gloves.  Our professional sales staff are experts in fitting our equipment to you, as proper fit is essential for your comfort and success in learning scuba diving.

  • Students learn faster and more comfortably in their own gear, and are encouraged to purchase their own SCUBA gear.

  • Drysuit Upgrade:  For an additional fee you may upgrade to learn in a drysuit!  You’ll dive warm and dry on your four open water dives!

**Equipment provided in standard sizes only, (students may need to purchase their own non-stock sizes)

CLASS SIZE AND ENROLLMENT INFORMATION

Class sizes average 6 to10 people per instructor which offers maximum individual attention to our students.

Our smaller classes lead to a safer, more intimate environment and exclude confusion in our diving activities. No herds of students here! Smaller classes fill quickly, so payment in full is required to hold a spot in a class.  For your convenience you may enroll over the telephone with the credit card of your choice!

Medical Conditions:  If you have Epilepsy, Asthma, Diabetes, or a heart condition, you might not be able to take Scuba lessons. If you have questions about a medical condition, please check with one of our staff, and your doctor. You will need a medical release to take a Scuba Class.
