Scuba Lessons at Neptune
One of our passions here at Neptune is the beautiful sport of SCUBA diving. Not only do we carry all the gear you'll need to dive in any location, we can teach you the skills you'll need to be able to enjoy the sport for many years to come. Dennis, our diving sage, has been teaching this stuff since 1973
so, there is nothing he can't handle or teach you to handle. Read below for more details on scuba lessons at Neptune Dive and Ski.
Learn From the Best
Neptune has been teaching SCUBA diving since 1973, longer than
any other dive school in Tennessee. We take a professional approach to our classes rather than conducting them like a "boot camp." You will learn to dive safely while having a great time. Our patient instructors teach at each student's pace and we are confident that you will be
pleased with your experience. If any student is unhappy with their course, we will insist on a full refund.
Who Can Dive?
Almost anyone in good health, who is comfortable in the water can learn
to SCUBA dive, providing they are five years or older*. Some of our most enthusiastic divers are well into their golden years. There are certain
medical or physical conditions that would not be compatible with safe diving. If someone is interested in diving and has a condition that is questionable, a medical examination by a doctor may be required.
*We have a safe, age appropriate youth program

Open Water Dives
Tennessee has many lakes, rivers, and rock quarries that have good visibility
diving. The four required open-water dives that are part of the SCUBA course can be made locally on day outings. Weekend dive trips are organized for those
who prefer a getaway weekend to complete the training. Some complete their training on one of our trips to the Bahamas, Florida Keys or the Caribbean.
We offer certification through the Multinational Diving Educators Association (MDEA).
MDEA has the industry's highest standards for education and service. Since its inception in 1984, MDEA has a network of dive resorts world wide that offer special
discount packages to all MDEA certified divers. We also have a well-organized procedure for advanced and specialty classes that is unique.
Neptune provides all the necessary diving equipment for the pool sessions and open water dives except for mask, fins, and snorkel. We keep a large selection of these items in stock discounted for students. Once you are certified, you will want to purchase your
own SCUBA equipment. We are the largest diving retailer in Middle Tennessee, and we are able to put together packages at very reasonable prices. If you want to
dive now and buy later, we have rental equipment on hand for your use until you select you own gear.
