Students begin the course in a classroom setting with a textbook and a lesson on the basics of equipment and diving. Then a certified instructor oversees pool sessions, during which amateurs exercise underwater-breathing techniques. Student divers then travel with their instructor for a few hours on Saturday and Sunday open-water training dives. Lastly, the instructor deems students open-water certified by either PADI or NAUI standards.
Dip 'N Dive
Since 1976, the instructors and staff of Dip 'N Dive have demystified the magic of breathing underwater. They instruct and outfit both scuba divers and snorkelers at their Buffalo location, and the facility's curriculum of PADI and NAUI courses help budding divers stay safe, maintain control of their equipment, and walk like Naomi Campbell while wearing fins. From beginning diving lessons to advanced instructor training, courses include classroom work, pool exercises, and real open-water-diving trips.
