The SCUBA program is instrumental to the Island School journey because it provides students with an opportunity to explore the beautiful underwater environment that surrounds Eleuthera in their Marine Ecology course.

After demonstrating proficiency in a number of underwater skills, students explore and document the underwater ecosystems. By the end of the semester, all students acquire PADI’s Open Water Diver certification and log approximately ten dives, including a night dive and a 100-foot deep dive to “The Wall” of the Exuma Sound.


Who better to tell you about our SCUBA program than the students who are a part of it each semester? Check out the student-made video about diving that takes place at the Island School:
