Under the supervision of PADI-certified instructors, the one-hour course will provide water novices with the skills and confidence needed to embark on aquatic expeditions. Though the class won't churn out scuba divers certified to dive alone, it might finally put to rest a persistent fear of bathtubs and really big puddles.
Lasting one to two hours, the Discover Scuba class includes all the equipment and instruction necessary to exploring the primordial womb of Lone Star Scuba's heated pool. A PADI-certified instructor will conduct a short lesson that covers basic safety skills and methods for using the equipment to pick up dates at the mall. Once thoroughly soaked in scuba knowledge, the majority of your experience will be spent in the water getting accustomed to life as a goggle-eyed amphibian.
A PADI five-star diving facility, Arlington Scuba Center, Inc. first opened its doors in 1972. Since then, the shop's scuba instructors have helped countless divers obtain PADI open-water certification. The lessons start within the facility's classroom and pool and eventually progress to natural locations, such as the five-story bathtub at Clear Springs Scuba Park, so students can complete dives in real-world conditions. Aside from this standard certification, the staff teaches advanced courses in which students can train for search-and-rescue missions or float above the hull of a sunken ship. Back on dry land, staffers man Arlington Scuba Center's dive shop, where they sell fins, masks, and other equipment from respected brands such as Aqua Lung and Henderson.

As part of a premiere PADI five-star National Geographic instructor-development center, International Scuba’s team trains underwater explorers in a variety of courses that range from snorkeling and skin diving to open-water and rescue diving. The heated, indoor salt-water pool accommodates divers from ages 8 and older, and equipment packages ensure all students are outfitted for their dives. Beyond the student level, divers can also earn their master scuba-diver certification, thus becoming teachers themselves. Students who master any of these levels can then elect a related specialty allowing them to dive under the ice, discover underwater wrecks, snap photographs of marine life, and help protect coral reefs from predatory plastic bags. Students who have completed their desired level of training but want to venture forth with a group can also participate in a trip diving in locations abroad and in 30 rivers, quarries, and beaches in and around Texas.
