Why Choose Us

Love What You Do


Red Alert Diving is North Florida’s newest PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Center and full-service Aquatic Training Facility.

In 2019, we expanded our business to include PCB IDC, and now offer professional level scuba training. Our offerings include PADI programs all the way through IDC Staff Instructor, EFR Instructor and DAN Instructor courses.

Panama City Beach offers our candidates the best environment for dive training because we have direct access to miles of uninterrupted white sand beaches, shipwrecks, natural reefs and freshwater springs. With vast diversity in our diving environments, rarely do we have to postpone or cancel training, and we are 12 hours closer to most of the United States than the Florida Keys.

As a drive to dive destination, we have numerous dive charter operators, restaurants, hotels and beach front attractions to keep candidates occupied during surface intervals.
