The qualified instructors at Explorer Diving submerge divers in adventuresome waters and scuba know-how during a series of fun and intensive classes. An approximately two-hour Discover Scuba Experience course presents aquatic pupils with basic instruction, familiarizing participants with equipment and essential safety fundamentals before gearing up and diving underwater to learn how to appease sea-monkey royalty. The Scuba Skills Refresher course gives divers already familiar with scuba a chance to get their gills wet, recall what they learned previously, and shake off the rust before advancing.
With the Basic Open Water Scuba Certification course, expert instructors prepare students for the experience of exploring lakes, rivers, and seas to treasure hunt, spot sea life, and reenact all of Tom Hanks’s scenes from Splash. During the series of eight classes scheduled over a period of eight weeks, divers learn the fundamentals as well as the science of diving. While earning the certificate, students spend several hours in controlled-water sessions, practicing old skills and harnessing new ones before taking part in five open-water dives. Upon completion of the course, newly finned participants receive certification as recognized by the National Association of Underwater Instructors (NAUI). Explorer Diving furnishes all necessary equipment, so students need only bring a swimsuit, towel, and a tolerance for nicknames with “fish” in them.
