When is the Last time you went diving?
There are a lot of divers who get certified and rarely dive. This is because they get trained to go on a trip, but when the trip is over they don't have anyone to go diving with.
This is where the Dive Trips and Education are so important. Through the Woodlands Dive Center you can participate in planning meetings and to learn about specialities in Diving. We plan a monthly dive trip to practice these new skills and throughout the year we have tropical dive trips.

Training is a must if you plan on expanding your Diving Experiences. Trips like the Flower Gardens, Off Shore Platforms, Florida Keys, Cenotes and wreck diving require additional skills to the basic open water certification. Vital basic skills need to be Underwater Navigation, Night Diving, Deep Diving, Boat Diving and Basic First Aid and CPR. Training in U/W Photography, Videography, Marine Identification, Dry Suit Diving, and Nitrox are ways to expand your diving experience and make it more enjoyable. Through our Dive Club we will offer introductions to these specialties and many more.
