The Ocean Pro Difference 

100% AWARE

We are partnered with Project AWARE, a global non-profit organization that is Protecting Our Ocean Planet - One Dive at a Time. They are focused on the critical issues of Sharks in Peril and Marine Debris, and we're supporting

them by donating $10 for every student we certify. 

Rent to Own

At this level of diving, you generally want to own your own gear. However as we add new gear that you may never have used before it can be hard to know what you want to buy. That's why we have our Rent to Own program. Rent a piece of gear, and if you decide that's what you want to buy, your rental price goes towards the cost of the gear!

Low Ratios

We keep our student to instructional staff ratios low to ensure you can progress a pace that is comfortable for you. We keep our numbers to a max of four students to one instructor or less.


In order to enroll in this program,you need to:

  • Completed your Open Water course,

  • Be 15+  

  • Have at least 10 cold water dives in the last six months

Don't have the required prerequisites? Give us a call and we'll work with you to find a solution
