Project Description

We are Boston’s premier diving education center for Dive Guide Classes and other professional scuba lessons in Massachusetts and New England!

About the Course


The SSI Dive guide program is an introduction into the world of dive professionals. As a Diveguide you will be qualified to lead certified divers on a variety of scuba diving adventures. You will be in charge of safety management, be able to help other divers with minor gear problems and be able to lead dive excursions safely whether it be from shore or in the water.The goal is to create well-prepared, versatile and marketable Dive Professionals. These can be completed as a shore dive or boat dive depending on the student requirements and weather conditions. Charter fees are not included.

Before Class

Note- All the paperwork you’ll need, along with a what to do before class checklist is located in the corresponding tab

Before your Dive Guide Course there is a bit of paperwork you’ll have to fill out. The most important piece is the medical, which can be printed out and brought to the pool at the time of the refresher.

Risk Awareness Videos

There are a couple of forms that can be done ahead of time. Most important is the medical. Go through the medical now and check to see if you need to answer “YES” to any of the questions. If so no big deal – you’ll just need to get a doctors’ sign off before we can let you in the pool. The doctors’ note is in the same file as the medical – Just scroll down to the next page. Remember IF you answer “YES” to anything in the medical it is COMPULSORY to get a doctors’ note BEFORE getting in the pool.




The Class will take place at the Shop in Brookline (213 Boylston Street) and the open water session will be dependent on weather. A couple of the popular ones can be found in the directions page.
