Never been in the ocean? Don't worry! Nautilus Divers, LLC works with new SCUBA divers and experienced SCUBA divers  of all ages. We can get families 'SCUBA certified' for those SCUBA diving vacations to the Bahamas or other Caribbean destinations, and we've also helped certify couples in SCUBA before they left for their honeymoons.  Need to advance your certification level before hitting that deep wreck or reef wall, we can get you into the SCUBA diving classes that will best prepare you for your next dive adventure.  


We're outfitted to help you make a splash!


Founded in 2015, Nautilus Divers, LLC was the result of my desire to lead people under the waves to explore and protect what they find there. Let me help you discover the beauty of the ocean, its inhabitants and its mystery.  Learning how to SCUBA dive is all that stands between you and exploring beneath the waves! 

Let's go diving!

Nicole goodson   

Founder of Nautilus Divers, LLC and PADI Master SCUBA Diver Trainer. I've been an avid SCUBA diver since 2004,  I received my professional training in Panama City Beach, Florida and Vero Beach, Florida in 2015.  I'm in the water as often as possible, whether with students or diving for fun. 

I am a PADI Master SCUBA Diver Trainer #355994 and a DAN Instructor #15467.  My main goal as an instructor is to teach divers to be safe and comfortable in the water.  Developing good entry level training builds confidence and makes divers want to advance their training to enhance dive experiences.
