Intro To Scuba:

Join us in a one night experience and get a taste of what scuba is really like. You will be set up in full gear and splashing into the shallow end of the pool. We will take a step by step approach to becoming comfortable in the water. Comfort builds confidence in diving and that confidence makes you a safe diver.

We will show you some of the skills we commonly do during the scuba course, which will also come into play while diving as well. You are not required to try any skill that you do not feel comfortable with, but are encouraged to see how easy it really is. If you love it then ask your instructor how to get signed up into the Open Water Class.
