Red Alert Diving’s Divemaster Program is a complete package, Training and Experience!
Our training is “Only The Best”. Unlike other programs, we limit the number of trainees to ensure that each and every student receives the personalized, hands-on training that has earned Red Alert Diving our reputation as the go to PADI training program for new professionals. With smaller, more intimate groups of trainees and an ever-growing pool of students and certified divers, RAD is your place to not only get certified as a PADI Divemaster, but to really become a
well-rounded and experienced PADI Divemaster!

All of this and yet, enough time to enjoy the unique fun of a Florida beach town. After all, all work and no fun makes for a dull Divemaster. While here we don’t give up on the fun… trips to the island for picnic lunches on the unspoiled, uncrowded beaches, the fresh water springs to the north, St Andrews State Park where you can see the alligators, deer and other wildlife or walk the beaches and piers for fantastic views of the sunsets.

You can join our Divemaster program with any level of dive certification, or even none at all! We offer all levels of dive training from the core courses through specialties you won’t find anywhere else in the Panhandle.
