Red Alert Diving

“Only The Best” Since 2017

In the fall of 2016 Red Alert Diving, LLC was established in the state of Florida by James Weber, a PADI Scuba Instructor with experience teaching all over the world and Todd Yarbrough, a PADI Course Director with over seventeen years at the highest levels of the diving industry.

In the Spring of 2017, RAD began construction of it’s 3000 sq/f training facility in Panama City Beach, FL. Today the RAD Aquatic Training Facility includes over 900sq/f of dive retail space, a state of the art classroom offering multimedia accommodations, and a 40,000 gallon training pool.

In 2018 Red Alert Diving had it’s first full summer of operation. Towards the end of the usual high season, on October 10th 2018, Hurricane Michael devastated the Bay County area. Our team went to work through the end of 2018 helping in local recovery efforts and raising over $30,000 in donations for our community. We implemented monthly clean up dives for local divers to help as well. In January 2019, we got back to doing what we do best, training divers.

In July of 2019, Red Alert Diving was awarded PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Center status. A rating that allows the staff to build on their long history of offering professional training, by holding IDC’s on site, at the best facility in the area.

The philosophy at Red Alert Diving is simple, we offer "Only The Best". From initial training to exotic dive travel, good enough isn't good enough. The standard is the starting line.
