How good of a swimmer do I have to be to participate in SCUBA diving? Most divers are not competing with Michael Phelps, but diving does require basic swimming skills and comfort in the water. All divers must complete a 200 yard swim and a 10 minute tread / float.
I really want to become a diver, but I have some fears about the water; what can I do to work through my fears? First of all, congratulations on deciding to face your fears! That is an incredibly challenging thing to do and one of the most amazing things to watch for us as your instructors. We have helped many new divers work through their personal challenges. We recommend considering the private Open Water class. In a one-on-one environment, the instructor can focus all of his or her attention on working through your dive skills to ensure mastery learning.
Is SCUBA Diving dangerous? SCUBA Diving does have inherent risks. We spend many hours covering how to dive safely recreationally to teach you how to dive in the safe manner than thousands of divers use every year.
What about sharks? We have many native sharks in San Diego, but they’re probably not the ones you’re thinking of. The sharks we most commonly encounter are small, bottom-feeder sharks that are terrified of us. As a diver, you will learn how much of a challenge it is to find sharks underwater.
Learning to dive is a life changing experience that is incredibly fun. Come join us and learn about majestic underwater world!
