The two- to three-hour Discover Scuba class includes basic instruction and time spent in the pool to practice fundamental scuba skills such as breathing underwater. Divers seeking certification can attend the open-water course that includes up to six hours of classroom instruction, six hours of training in the pool, and open-water dives at Beaver Lake in Arkansas.
Big Joe Scuba
The certified trainers and divers at Big Joe Scuba wade students through all watery courses, from beginner to PADI-certified instructor. They accomplish this through classroom instruction and dips into their heated pool, where students become accustomed to breathing and maneuvering underwater. After they advance to open-water courses, the classroom extends to Beaver Lake, Arkansas, for diving practice in natural surroundings. A full-service dive center, Big Joe Scuba also rents and sells a complete line of gear and organizes diving jaunts to exotic locales such as Cozumel, Mexico.
