Divers Alert Network (DAN) / PADI® Courses — practical AND fun

Divers Alert Network courses

With Harbor Dive Center, there is no need to look any further for PADI® scuba diving lessons, classes and courses!  We not only strive to make all of our educational coursework a fun and easy endeavor for our students, like limited shore entries (e.g., diving from a boat), we also ensure students learn to stay safe as divers.  And, in the rare instance when something does occur, we prepare our students through the Divers Alert Network (DAN) educational courses, in conjunction with the PADI® Rescue Diver course.

And did you know you can earn college credit taking PADI® scuba lessons?
Learning something practical and having fun at the same time — what a deal!

Body Glove SUP by Focus Brands
Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is a fun, easy, and fast-growing activity on water that everyone can enjoy.  It offers a great full-body workout, in both ocean surf and waveless lakes and rivers.  This versatility makes stand up paddleboarding a popular choice for skiers, snowboarders, and other athletes looking for an exciting yet relaxing way to cross-train on water.  Paddleboarding offers great views of everything from the marine life below to the horizon beyond as you stand at your full height above the water.
