Where are clases held?

What will I learn in class?
You will learn all the basics of Scuba Diving. You will know the equipment used for scuba diving, breathing underwater, the use of buoyancy to keep you off the bottom. You will get all of these skills and more from our classes.
Is learning to dive difficult and also does it require me to be a good swimmer?
If you are comfortable being in the water and you are in decent shape then learning to dive shouldn’t be too much of an issue. We will give you a medical questionnaire to determine your fitness for diving and in your first session in the pool; you will be given a short swimming test.
If I have a medical condition can I still learn to dive?
Some conditions will not allow you to dive safely. Download the PADI Medical Statement that will ask you yes or no questions and if you answer yes on any of the questions you will need to consult with a physician.
Do women have any special concerns regarding diving?
Aside from pregnancy, no. Because physiologists know little about the effects of diving on the fetus, the recommendation is that women avoid diving while pregnant or trying to become pregnant. Menstruation is not normally a concern.
What if I feel claustrophobic?
People find the “weightlessness” of scuba diving to be quite freeing. Modern scuba masks are available in translucent models, which you may prefer if a mask makes you feel closed in. During your scuba diving training, your instructor gives you plenty of time and coaching to become comfortable with each stage of learning. Your scuba instructor works with you at your own pace to ensure you master each skill necessary to become a capable scuba diver who dives regularly.
What does it really cost?
We offer all-inclusive pricing for our classes. There will not be any hidden costs, and we provide all equipment including masks, fins, and snorkel for all of our training classes. All of our prices are straightforward.
