What we're about
Letts Dive!! and the Letts Dive!! St. Petersburg Scuba Club is operated by Joe and Brenda Letts from their 42' Trawler at the Saint Petersburg Municipal Marina. It also happens to be their home! Joe is a Master PADI Scuba Diving Instructor with over 50 years of "in-depth" experience and 3,000+ hours underwater. He is also a USCG certified Captain. Our prime goal is to provide a no pressure (well, maybe 1 ATM) social and diving environment where everyone is welcome regardless of experience level. Joe remembers his first Royal Aquamaster double hose regulator dive back in 1964 very well!
We can customize scuba programs for friends and family in your own backyard pool or join us for a weekend dive program. Either way begin on a Friday complete theory and pool by Sunday afternoon then complete your open water training dives with us locally, in the Keys or the Islands. Or you may decide to join us on one of our guided International dive trips.
Joe Letts is a PADI Master Instructor and IDC Staff Instructor. He is also an Instructor Trainer Examiner in the State of Florida for ACUC, the American and Canadian Underwater Certification (the first agency he was certified to teach with back in 1969).
He offers the following PADI and ACUC certifications and specialty courses to Dive Team Members:
Open Water Diver Advanced Diver Night Specialty Navigation Specialty Search and Rescue Specialty Rescue Diver Deep Diver Divemaster Instructor Enriched Air Specialty Boat Specialty Ice Diver Specialty Dry Suit Specialty Equipment Specialist Wreck Diver Specialty Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty Underwater Hunter
