VERY professional. Very customer service conscious. Captain Sue sent her divemasters out to our truck with a Dolly to retrieve our scuba gear and stage it up on the boat. I felt like I was in the Paris Hilton or something. Capt picked some awesome...More

For U.S based divers looking for a very rewarding experience and not have to travel half way around the world for it, I highly recommend flying down to West Palm Beach Florida and dive with Jim Abernathy. We dove the wreck of the Mizpah a...More
Just dove with Jim and his crew last weekend and had a great time! The dive spots were totally new to me, which is always exciting (3 wrecks on dive 1!), and everyone was extremely helpful and attentive. They were quick to help us load/unload...More

If you are in the West Palm Beach area Jim Abernethy Scuba Adventures is by far the best shop to go diving with. I have dove with them many times and they consistently meet or exceed my expectations of a professional dive operation. The staff...More

Rachel. No reputable provider will take you on a boat dive after only a very short course. Some resorts do but even that is usually only after a teaching session in a swimming pool and some additional discussion of diving principals. Abernathy does offer something called "Discover Scuba". This is a PADI recognized course which, as the name implies, is intended to give you a taste of diving before you decide if you wish to get certified. Abernathy will take you on a supervised shallow dive from land at a site they use for training. I don't know exactly how much time it will take but would guess at least half a day. I suggest you give them a call and inquire. As to pricing, this is from their website;
This is a great way to try scuba diving without doing a certification course. You’ll get a basic understanding of the sport and enjoy a beautiful dive at the world famous Blue Heron Bridge. Minimum age is 10 years old. Private class $174.95+tax. Bring a friend and you both get $25.00 off! Includes: all rental gear, instructor fees, a short class and an open water dive excursion with one of our instructors.
For any lessons we do require a Medical Statement Form be filled out prior to diving.
If you answer ‘YES’ to ANY question on the Medical Statement Form you will need a doctor to complete the ‘Physician’s Impression’ section of the Form within the previous 12 months.
