About Us

what we do

Connecticut Scuba Academy is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to providing educational services for, Scientific, Public Safety, and Adaptive scuba diving.


 We have been lucky enough to partner with the Sound School in New Haven CT http://sound.school/ to develop Scientific dive programs for High schools and University's, this is the only program of its kind in Connecticut and one of only a few in the United states. Our program is designed to introduce students to the underwater environment in their freshman year and have them performing scientific dives within NOAA dive standards by the time they graduate. 


  The Academy is also partnered with The Institute of Professional Practice https://www.ippi.org/, a private, non-profit human services and educational organization based in Vermont, IPPI specializes in providing treatment and support to people with developmental and psychiatric disabilities throughout New England and Maryland. The Academy is proud to be working with IPPI's Connecticut department on developing and provide Adaptive aquatic programs for the people they serve.

Another mission of the Academy is to work with multiple Public Safety Dive teams in. NJ, NY, CT, MA, RI and VT to provide the latest unifying PSD training available, allowing teams to cooperate across state lines seamlessly.  


  We also offer recreational scuba certification programs for other organizations and non profits like the Scouts and YMCA's.  We believe anyone and everyone can experience the adventure and exploration of diving. Financial, physical, or intellectual impairments shouldn't keep a child or adult from living a full and adventurous life. Therefore, we offer special scuba lessons and pricing to meet the needs of any individual or group.    https://www.tdisdi.com/erdi/

The Sound School

  Connecticut Scuba Academy  has been lucky enough to partner with this unique High school.   The Sound School prepares  students for college, careers, and life in a maritime focused  environment.

Coupled  with rigorous academics and a dedicated faculty, we have become  Connecticut’s premier aquaculture/agriculture science and technology  education center (ASTE).

“Our kids perform professional tasks, present at  professional conferences, and are often teaching others how to DO when  they go off to college and work. Our students are using equipment often  not touched until junior/senior year of college. Plus, how many high  school kids get to build an ROV (remotely operated vehicle), a boat, or  operate a 40 ton USCG certified vessel?”.

We  here at Squalusmarine.com believe that exploration is in everyone's  DNA! So, We put our money where our mouth is! Squalus Marine Divers  has been filming all of our dives for 4 years. We film in a rustic  first-person style to give the viewer the gritty feel of actually being  there! (Not all of our dives are pretty!) 

The  videos allow us to take divers, and non divers along for the ride. We  hope to expose people to, not only the joys and excitement of Scuba  Diving, but also to various locations off the beaten path!
