At Scuba Specialties, experienced instructors lend their nautical know-how to diving greenhorns age 10 years and up during Discover Scuba classes. Each introductory session—lasting 60–90 minutes—instills plunging pupils with the proper utilization of equipment, as well as tips and trips for making small talk with bashful snorkels. After gleaning basic fundamentals, students don diving duds and step into the shallow tides of an indoor heated pool, where newly acquired techniques are practiced in the safety of shallow waters. Instructors volunteer careful guidance as divers hone subaqueous skills, helping them master the art of breathing underwater for future undersea explorations and nightly tug of wars with stubborn bathtub drains.
