Poseidon Adventures Limited's PADI-certified scuba instructors guide fledgling divers through the world of underwater breathing in a two-hour Discover Scuba course. Classes of up to 10 students begin on dry land with a curriculum of scuba basics and safety practices. Following the on-land lecture, the instructors strap gill-less guests into the appropriate scuba equipment before unleashing them on a nearby pool for firsthand scuba simulation. Upon taking the first plunge, bubbles burst out of regulators like cannons filled with dish soap and divers experience the weightless sensation of breathing while submerged. Although not included in today's Groupon, students who wish to continue their scuba education can pursue PADI certification in Poseidon Adventures Limited’s Open Water course.
Pirates Cove Scuba's certified instructors imbue beginning or advanced pupils with the requisite knowledge and techniques for plunging beneath aquatic surfaces and stock a full selection of dive equipment to help them to breathe easier while below. After briefings expound on what participants should expect when underwater, one-hour introductory courses gradually familiarize students with navigating H2O while wearing scuba gear before they explore the unseen depths and sunken pool-noodle wrecks of Pirates Cove Scuba's pool.
Open-water certifications expand on introductory knowledge with further classroom and pool study. Full-certification-seekers conclude schooling during scheduled weekend lake trips, which include four dives in open-water environments that, if properly performed, earn former novices final certification and congratulatory smooches from impressed catfish. To keep divers submerging in style, Pirates Cove Scuba carries equipment from Dive Rite, Henderson, and Seadive, which aquanauts can don on trips to Cozumel and other tropical destinations booked through the dive shop's travel desk.
Whether at the retail store or beneath the water's surface, Bluewater Divers' crew maintains a commitment to helping their customers live life to the fullest. The staff, which includes PADI-certified instructors as well as an aptly named director of happiness, leads scuba classes at heated pools, natural bodies of water, or inside their own imaginations. After students master beginner courses, instructors can help them obtain PADI certification for open-water diving in the deep blue or learn advanced skills such as rescue diving. It’s not uncommon for students to foster new friendships with other divers or their instructors, especially during the school’s regularly scheduled social events and diving trips.
An authorized dealer for many leading brands, Bluewater Divers’ staff keeps the shop filled with necessary scuba equipment and accessories. The crew also runs a demo department, which lets divers test gear before they commit to living inside a giant fishbowl.
At The Scuba Shack, the staff?s family-oriented lessons encourage divers to take social rather than solo ventures into the blue beyond, teaching clients from around Oklahoma at their location on May Avenue. Each instructor carries an impressive r?sum? of underwater travels. The Scuba Shack is a member of PADI?the Professional Association of Diving Instructors?a scuba certifying agency recognized across the globe with exacting standards for training and safety.
Captaining PADI-certification courses and specialty seminars?which cover topics such as night diving, photography, and fish identification?the instructors take groups on open-water excursions to area lakes and Clear Spring Scuba Park. With trips to dive sites in Fiji and Mexico, they introduce divers to the visual wonder of reefs and aquatic wildlife throughout the world.
