  • For $220, you get an open-water-diver certification course (a $440 value).

Lancaster Scuba Center's licensed aquatic explorers prep aspiring divers for the azure abyss with informative, in-water diving classes. The single-session Professional Association of Diving Instructors' Discover Scuba course lets amateur aquanauts dip into the safe shallows of a swimming pool before easing them into the deep end in search of feral drain covers. Students cover scuba basics, such as breathing underwater and spotting mythical cities, in a safe and controlled environment and need only bring a swimsuit, towel, and release form to participate.

For more comprehensive undersea guidance, a five- to six-week open-water-diving certification course, held once per week, equips pupils with a lifetime diving certification for depths up to 60 feet. Broken into three parts, the course ferries swimmers from the classroom to the confined water dives of a heated indoor pool before plunging students into the depths of a local diving lake where novice Jacques Cousteaus can put their newly acquired navigation skills to use. Educational materials and in-pool exercises teach diving protocol and safety, and an array of nonaqueous tools, such as an open-water-dive manual, diving log, and educational DVD, keeps track of liquid progress. Lancaster Scuba Center provides divers with rental gear; however, personal equipment such as masks, snorkels, fins, boots, and weight belts must be brought or purchased by each student. Check the course schedule for upcoming class times.

Lancaster Scuba

PADI-certified scuba instructor John Walker opened Lancaster Scuba in 1993 to encourage others to explore underwater ecosystems. Today, the center is a PADI 5-Star Instructor Development Center, which means Walker and his staff are teaching the next generation of scuba instructors. Of course, if you just want to learn how to safely scuba dive for leisure, the center has an array of courses for beginners and mermaids alike. On top of everything, Lancaster Scuba has a store with scuba gear, an on-site cylinder filling station, and an eco-friendly approach that earned it a PADI Green Star Award.

I totally enjoyed my time with the folks at the Scuba shop. Our instructor, John Walker and his helper, his son, were amazing in helping my daughter and myself in the Discovery class. I might not go further in Scuba training but we both enjoyed our time with Mr. Walker.

This experience was the best ! The instruction was right inline with being informative, fun and safe. I would recommend this to anyone from kids to adults. We took our two teenage daughters and they had a blast. The shop also has everything and anything you can imagine. The whole team was passionate about what they do and their pride shows in every aspect. If you are a little apprehensive, please visit this place and I am certain they will reassure you and make you feel more than comfortable. I would recommend Mr. John Waker as an instructor hands down, he was amazing !
