PADI-certified dive instructors guide students from underwater initiations to professional certifications in International Scuba’s dedicated dive pools. Subsurface neophytes taste the other side of the waves in the two-hour discover-scuba classes, which cover breathing basics, tank management, and the recipe for anti-gill elixir. All necessary equipment is provided, with the exception of a bathing suit and towel.
Certified divers who have not dived recently can refresh techniques in the PADI scuba tune-up class, polishing rusty skills and barnacled flippers. Students master buoyancy control like an obedient pet betta fish during the double dives of the continuing-education peak-performance buoyancy class. Divers learn refined kicking and breathing techniques, attuning themselves to underwater movement through fine-motor-control gameplay such as domino stacking, hula-hooping, and playing Nintendo underwater.
As part of a premiere PADI five-star instructor-development center, International Scuba’s team trains underwater explorers in a variety of courses that range from snorkeling and skin diving to open-water and rescue diving. The heated, indoor salt-water pool accommodates divers from ages 8 and older, and equipment packages ensure all students are outfitted for their dives. Beyond the student level, divers can also earn their master scuba-diver certification, learning how to dive at the highest level.
Students who master any of these levels can then elect a related specialty allowing them to dive under the ice, discover underwater wrecks, snap photographs of marine life, and help protect coral reefs from predatory plastic bags. Students who have completed their desired level of training but want to venture forth with a group can also participate in a trip diving in locations abroad and in 30 rivers, quarries, and beaches in and around Texas.
