Q:

I can't swim but I can snorkel and move about in water fine. Could I still learn SCUBA?

Chi H.  asked on  Dec 7, 2012

A:

Part of the process of learning to dive is a watermanship evaluation. A 10 minute tread water (in the deep end of the pool) and the abaility to complete either a 200 yard swim, or 300 mask-snorkel-fin swim, continuosly, is required. Being comfortable in the water is important to learn to dive.That all being said, you probably should get some swimming skills before you start with scuba.

Q:

If you cannot make all classes for a given schedule, can you make them up by attending other classes?

Lee K.  asked on  Dec 6, 2012

A:

If you can't make all the classes, there is an option to do a make-up with an instructor for a small fee. Generally, we like to coordinate with students to find a class where they can make all or most of the sessions to help build a well-rounded experience.

Q:

2 questions: - Are the wetsuits and or drysuits, and all the gear included, or do we need to purchase stuff? - If I purchase 2, can my 17 year old son and I use both groupons to do the classes together?

Shaun W.  asked on  Dec 6, 2012

A:

Yes, wetsuits and all scuba life support equipment is included, as well as fins, etc. and the student materiials, too. The mask & snorkel are yours to keep after the class. We do offer a drysuit course in conjuntion to the OW class for an addition cost, but it is not required to get certified. Yes, both you and your son can do class together!
