Submerged in a completely different world - a world where 'exotic' doesn't begin to describe what's in front of your eyes, that's AQ scuba...
Through crystal blue waters with incredible visibility, you'll come face-to-face with spectacular marine life like hawksbill turtles, queen angelfish and schools of mirror-like silver sides.

ActionQuest has been teaching scuba longer than any other teen summer camp and we have one of the highest ratios of continuing education of any scuba diving school worldwide. That means that if you are joining AQ for one of our high adventure teen scuba camps, we can guarantee you an incredibly safe, diverse and, above all, fantastically fun program!

Introductory Certification Level Scuba Camps

Scuba diving is fun and easy to learn -- especially if you're already comfortable in the water. Our scuba camps seek to surpass standards set by PADI and all scuba equipment is provided by us for any BVI voyage. The PADI Open Water certification program is part of the Vega voyages. Students complete academic classes, confined water and open water training sessions as part of this course. Students begin training in shallow water (much like a swimming pool). Once this is complete, they continue on to open water training between 20 and 40 feet, always with an instructor. PADI courses are performance-based rather than time-based. This means that if a student is having difficulty with any particular skill, our instructors will work one-on-one with that shipmate until the skill is mastered.

Advanced Certification Level Scuba Camps

We have a range of voyages for shipmates who already hold a scuba certification and this includes the Advanced Open Water, Rescue Diver, numerous PADI specialties and Divemaster, the first professional level. Every year, we have a number of students who are not yet certified divers but want to join us for an advanced scuba course where certification is a prerequisite. In this instance, we suggest contacting your local PADI school and inquiring what it might take to obtain a PADI referral. With a PADI referral, you can join us for any program in which a basic scuba certification is a prerequisite. For more information on PADI referrals, please read our Scuba FAQ section.
