Scuba in Centralia


Select Local Merchants

Designed for ages 12 and up, the intro to scuba class swims students through the basics of scuba diving during an hour of classroom time, then plunges fins first into the pool for two hours of guided practice. The center's certified trainers, who are collectively responsible for A-2-Z's dive center's five-star rating from the Professional Association of Diving Instructors, watch over all submerged lessons in breathing, swimming, and mastering the art of buoyancy. Classes are kept to a max of 4–6 students, granting all learners the mask-to-mask time needed to develop their underwater confidence and to neatly avoid accidental mergers into the human hive mind.

To learn about the wildlife of Puget Sound, you could go to your local library or pour through pictures online. Or you could see it up close during a trip with Exotic Aquatics Scuba and Kayaking. True to their company's name, the staff immerses adventurers in the scenic locale through SCUBA dives and kayak tours. While divers submerge themselves in dreamlike sites to look for octopi and rock fish, kayakers paddle across Eagle Harbor in search of otters and seabirds.

Before diving into the school's practice pool, divers learn the basics of breathing through a regulator, clearing water from a mask, and adjusting the pressure buildup during descents. After that, swimmers will become underwater explorers. Learn to dive under the watchful supervision of an experienced, PADI-certified instructor. Craig Gillespie is a pro diver with webbed feet for toes and gills for eyes. He has logged more than 30 years of dives, during which time tens of thousands of would-be flounders were taught the ways of scuba diving.
