Down Under Dive Shop's PADI-certified professionals introduce curious landfarers to the art of breathing underwater in a safe setting. In an initiatory session, students take to shallow water as they develop familiarity with equipment, learn about scuba safety, and pick up basic skills for subaquatic maneuvering. Though the class won't churn out scuba divers certified to dive alone, the hours count toward eventual scuba or open-water certification, as well as putting to rest a persistent fear of bathtubs and really big puddles. Down Under Dive Shop supplies all of the necessary armament for a successful maritime sally, including a mask, snorkel, fins, buoyancy compensating jacket, and air tank.
