Here at Lloyd Bailey's Scuba we just don't issue certification cards but we make properly trained scuba divers. We hold a no pressure and thorough class, because you have paid good money to get trained and not just to receive a certification card. Our instructional program is geared to your comfort zone and we exceed any agency's standards.
We also understand that just taking a class is not enough to become comfortable underwater and become proficient with scuba skills. That is why we offer a FREE trip down the Rainbow River for Open Water students that have completed their training and we also encourage former students to come back to dive with other Open Water Classes either during pool sessions (if space allows) or during the Open Water dive weekend to become more comfortable and to become better at basic scuba skills.
DO NOT purchase any gear until you have met with your instructor for a PRECOUNSELING appointment!
We have the best selection or scuba gear in North Central Florida and we have great package deals on Scuba and Snorkeling equipment. We have mask, fins, boots and snorkel packages at great prices for our open water students. Click here to see the specials.

THE HOME STUDY STUDENT KIT WHICH INCLUDES A SIX MODULE VHS OR DVD, TEXT BOOK W/ WORK BOOK AND DIVE TABLES @ $59.95
AN SSI TOTAL LOG BOOK TO FACILITATE PRE DIVE AND POST DIVE PLANNING AS WELL AS KEEPING A RECORD OF DIVES MADE @$34.95 FOR THE DELUXE LOG BOOK.
PARK ADMISSION FEES ARE $75.00 TO DIVE AT BLUE GROTTO AND GINNIE SPRINGS. BLUE GROTTO IS THE VERY BEST LOCATION IN NORTH FLORIDA FOR A NEW STUDENT TO MAKE THEIR FIRST SCUBA DIVES AFTER POOL TRAINING. THE WATER IS STILL AND REMAINS CLEAR WHICH IS IDEAL FOR NEW DIVERS. ON THE SECOND DAY WE DIVE DEVIL’S, EYE, EAR, LITTLE DEVIL, GINNIE AND EXPERIENCE THE SANTA FE RIVER IF CONDITIONS ALLOW. IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT THE STUDENT DO THE OPTIONAL DIVES IN WEST PALM BEACH.
EACH STUDENT WILL NEED TO PROVIDE THEIR OWN SURFACE SUPPORT GEAR (MASK, SNORKEL FINS, BOOTS, AND SEA DROPS, ETC.)
NEW DIVERS SHOULD PLAN ON SPENDING AROUND $600 TO COMPLETE THE ENTRY LEVEL COURSE AND AROUND $1750 TO BECOME AN ACTIVE DIVER. OUR POLICY OF “PRINCIPLE BEFORE PROFIT” DICTATES FULL DISCLOSURE OF ALL COSTS PRIOR TO YOU STARTING YOUR TRAINING. YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BECOME AN ACTIVE DIVER UNTIL YOU OWN YOUR OWN GEAR! AT LBS&W WE ARE ONLY INTERESTED IN CREATING NEW DIVERS. IN ORDER TO AVOID WASTING TIME AND MONEY, DO NOT TAKE THE COURSE IF YOU ARE NOT PREPARED TO GET INTO THE SPORT.
