Veteran’s Administration and NAUI: Your Next Mission

Are you interested in learning to dive, improving your diving skills, and becoming a dive professional? The G.I. Bill® can help you accomplish this.

You can use your G.I. Bill® to pay for many of our scuba courses. Through this series of programs, you will learn the basics of diving and progress up a guided path to become a professional diver if you choose.
