Learn the basics of breathing underwater in this one- to two-hour Discover Scuba-Diving intro course, where you simply suit up in a dashing underwater tuxedo and allow the water-breathing humanoids of Pro Ski and Scuba to guide you. The controlled environment of the pool keeps things safe and simple for all involved, and the instructors will acquaint you with the aquatic dos and don'ts essential for mortal survival 40,001 leagues under the sea. They'll answer any questions concerning diving technique and treasure etiquette with their vast, ocean-like expanses of knowledge. Though you won't be certified to dive after one class, your Discover Scuba intro course can be credited towards a PADI Open Water Dive certification if you decide to pursue underwater mastery.
Scuba-diving is a great way to experience areas of the earth human eyes rarely get to see, communicate with orca whales, and find lost keys that have been cruelly placed at the bottom of the ocean. Pro Ski and Scuba is a PADI five-star IDC facility, the highest ranking for a dive shop. Classes typically take place every Wednesday night.

About Pro Ski and Scuba
Pro Ski and Scuba, a PADI five-star IDC facility, shares the basics of breathing underwater in the two-hour Discover Scuba Diving Experience led by certified instructors with more than 25 years of combined experience. The controlled pool environment keeps things safe and simple for all involved as instructors acquaint students with provided dive equipment as well as aquatic dos and don'ts culled from their vast, ocean-like expanses of knowledge. During the 2.5-hour class, students practice ascents, descents, and anglerfish impressions. Although students aren't certified to dive after one class, the Discover Scuba Diving Experience’s skills can be credited toward PADI open-water certification should class-goers decide to pursue an underwater graduate degree. Those who prefer to dive in groups can bring along up to three friends, and kids ages eight to 12 can forgo conventional birthday parties for a celebration in Pro Ski and Scuba’s pool with up to eight friends and two adults. Birthday parties often span 2.5 hours, and for an additional $20, Pro Ski will provide a birthday cake and silverware.
