Choose Between Two Options
- $25 for a two-hour Discover Scuba class (a $50 value)
- $150 for an open-water diver-certification course (a $300 value)
Discover Scuba classes split time between the classroom and the pool, where students practice safety fundamentals that were previously discussed in the open air. Alternatively, three- to four-week certification courses are tailored to the learning pace of each student with five or six review sessions in conjunction with aquatic practice. The course culminates with a weekend dive in the open ocean. Both courses include all scuba equipment, but diver-certification students must bring their own mask, snorkel, fins, and boots.
At Albany Scuba, a team of aquanautic veterans hosts a variety of diving classes, certification courses, and diving excursions. The team gives students the benefit of one-on-one tutelage, tailoring their instruction to each student's rate of learning and prior experience, from seasoned divers to newbies who've never even had a glass of water dumped on their head before. Beginners are offered a chance to practice in a placid diving pool before taking to the open ocean, and all certified divers are welcome to join the team on regular excursions to nearby lakes and calamari petting zoos.
