Discover Scuba

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater. If you want to find out but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving will let you try scuba to see if you like it. There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to –after all, human beings weren’t designed to do that – but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realize how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge instructors have with the Discover Scuba Diving program is not coaxing participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the program is over. The fun part? It’s all fun!
 
Cost for this experience is only $50. All you need to bring is a bathing suit and a towel, we will provide you with everything else.
 
Single day classes are currently scheduled for May 17th, June 21st, and July 26th.
Scuba Tune Up
Have you been out of the water for a while? If you're already a certified diver and are looking to get back in the water, then a Scuba Tune Up is just what you need. The Scuba Tune Up is designed to provide a brief single confined water SCUBA skills review. The program begins with a self paced, guided review of the Scuba Tune Up Workbook, followed by a pool session that allows for skill review and instructor led demonstrations. 
 
 
Cost for this course is $99 and includes you SCUBA Tune Up workbook and use of all SCUBA gear (regulator, BCD, wetsuit, tank, and weightbelt, with weights). Students only need to provide mask, snorkel, and fins.
 
 
One day classes are currently scheduled for May 10th, June 14th and July 19th.
