Paradise Divers’ experienced instructors introduce fledgling divers to the basics of scuba beneath the surface of a heated indoor pool kept at a comfortable 85 degrees. Students strap on provided equipment, such as air tanks and masks, and plunge into the newly accessible underwater environs, absorbing knowledge like a dry sponge stuck to a soaking-wet encyclopedia. Over the course of two hours, submerged students take their cues from experts, floating effortlessly, mastering underwater movements, and getting acquainted with how scuba equipment functions in its natural environment.
Paradise Divers’ cadre of qualified instructors draws on experience gleaned from more than 6,000 logged dives to impart everything from basic water-skills classes to full scuba and specialty certifications to pupils. The expert crew has certified more than 2,000 divers with its all-inclusive instruction programs and leads specialty diving getaways to remote and exotic locales. They are the only facility in Louisville to have their own indoor pool, heated to 85 degrees, which sets a comfortable, crustacean-free stage for underwater navigation, and doubles as a venue for private pool parties and special functions.
