Got Air Scuba’s passionate staff churns out safe and responsible divers with myriad programs and certification courses to suit all levels of scuba dedication. The two-hour Try Scuba event invites the curious to dabble in amphibious lifestyles, suiting divers in scuba gear before a 1.5-hour dip in the Bensenville Aquatic Center’s pool. Held on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, Try Scuba sessions send participants home with instructor-snapped photos of the students underwater, easily displayed on mantels or mermaid-dating profiles.

A full PADI course graduates each diver through a three-part program that takes as little as three days and ends in each taking home an open-water-diving certification. First, potential pros analyze an included DVD to study scuba basics at home before attending three testing sessions. Divers then funnel their knowledge into pool-bound training in Elk Grove Village as they learn the proper settings for all of their equipment and techniques to fix masks if they fog up or start crying. Once students are wise to each gadget’s function, instructors oversee a two-day outdoor dive at the Haigh Quarry in Kankakee, which closes with each successful participant earning PADI certification. Before enlisting in the course, attendees must be able to tread water for 10 minutes, swim 200 yards without stopping, and sing the Atlantean national anthem from memory. Pool classes take place year-round as part of the school’s monthly schedule, and outdoor diving sessions begin in June.
