Moby's Dive Shop employs a staff of certified diving enthusiasts to lead budding aquanauts in one-on-one introductory lessons. Before the lesson from Moby's, intrepid explorers participate in an online training session offered through Scuba Schools International to gain insight into diving fundamentals and to take a break from perpetually studying Kevin Costner as a postapocalyptic aqueous vagabond. After the online session is complete, Moby's adorns its hydrophilic students with the necessary equipment for an introductory dive in the indoor pool or the dive shop's exclusive, onsite scuba lake that boasts good visibility and an abundance of ichthyological life and deluged bottle messages containing coveted Donkey Kong codes.
Ocean Sands Scuba's knowledgeable instructors guide divers into the deep with scuba training for beginner and advanced aquanauts alike. Interested patrons test their sea lungs in introductory scuba classes, splashing about in the facility's custom-built pool before moving on to a complete certification course. During certification, students pick up essential information on equipment, techniques, and the trendiest Atlantean nightclubs through in-class study and pool dives. After four weekly classes, burgeoning submergers hit the open water on one of Ocean Sands Scuba's dive trips to Gull Lake or Lake Michigan. Ocean Sands Scuba also stocks scuba equipment from Scubapro, Diverite, and Stahlsac for divers who have already reached certification or for hydrophobic sea turtles.
At Altek Sports and Scuba, divers with years of experience train students of all levels, including those with handicaps or mobility issues, how to explore watery depths during scuba certification classes. Pupils safely plunge beneath the depths of a training pool within the five-star SDI/TDI training facility, or they dive in open water with a licensed instructor leading them through every step in the underwater breathing process.
Richard J. Sass first felt the weight of a scuba tank about his shoulders at 15, when a friend's father strapped him into a suit and threw him into the world's deep end, as it were. Rick fell in love with diving before ever surfacing on that first adventure, and he started Sub-Aquatic Sports & Service – or SASS for short – to share his passion with others. He and his staff teach a full range of scuba classes, from beginner certifications to becoming a dive instructor. They lead trips into waters across the world, from Australia to Micronesia, from the Great Lakes to the Galapagos Islands.
