You'll have to buy equipment and pay for a couple smaller expenses when you start taking the class but it's definitely worth it! Staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. They stress your safety and the safety of your group and teach you how to be conscious and caring of the environments around you. Great place to get certified! They offer several other beginner to advanced classes as well.

The instructor knowledgeable and responsible. Takes care at all time for the safety of students. The bad part is the price of the equipment, that you must buy from his store. The gear is really expensive! Anyways, it worth try it!

While scuba is fun and very enjoyable for everyone it does have some inherent risks associated with it. We put customer safety and happiness as our number one priority. As a result of this we will only take you into the water with equipment we know fits and will keep you safe, as we won't compromise your safety. We know have the lowest prices of any dive stores, and will match all prices on everything we carry. We have a price matching sign right by the catch register showing our pricing policy. Even best buy won't price match online prices, but we will from authorized dealers.

Great class!

What You'll Get

One of the earliest acronyms to gain the acceptance of a wary public, SCUBA is perhaps the only enduring legacy of the highly secretive Sub-Conscious Ungulate Booster Association. Get your feet wet in this watery pastime by submerging yourself into today’s deal: for $39, you get a one-day Discover Scuba Program (a $100 value) from Sink or Swim Scuba in Gastonia. This is a great chance for starving sea sponges to start soaking up saltwater knowledge.

The first sessions will be on Sunday, March 21, and Sunday, March 28, at 9 a.m., and more will be scheduled based on demand. The class can contain anywhere from 1 to 15 people, so call to request or find out about future dates. The program begins with a short class to lay the groundwork for the day to follow. Meet at the store to learn about necessary diving equipment, basic procedures, and the rules of the underwater world, such as "do not lick the octopodes." After the school of ambitious fish is released, you'll be transported to the dive site via transporter beam or bus. You won't be heading all the way to the Atlantic (this time), but instead to a nearby pool, where you'll grow your sea legs in a controlled environment away from packs of ravenous sea horses and prehistoric megalodons. Equipment will be provided for you. You'll spend two to three hours in the water practicing maneuvers and getting comfortable with the equipment. During the educational pool party, participants will play games in and out of the water to further the familiarity with scuba fun. Aspiring Cousteaus will also get a primer in open-water scuba certification to bring newfound skills to the open sea.

Students must be proficient swimmers and at least 18 years old to swim solo, while those between the ages of 10 and 17 can participate if accompanied by a parent or guardian. If you or someone you know has always been scuba-curious, get today's Groupon to start a new life in Waterworld. Direct descendants of merpeople can finally return to their aqua roots without devolving their lungs back into gills.

  • Seeking to help a friend's paraplegic son experience freedom and movement again, I asked Brent, through Sink or Swim Scuba to introduce him to the world of scuba diving. Enthuestically [sic], Brent accepted this challenge and it was everything I wanted it to be and more. Brent broke through the bonds of paralysis and gave this young man a whole new world to explore, a world without limits. Thank you Brent, you make dreams come true. – Rhonda Owenby
  • I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my diving experience with you. Your personality is a great asset to your business and dealing with clients. I look forward to experiences with you in the future and many more trips. – Jim

About Sink or Swim Scuba

Brent Clevenger founded Sink or Swim Scuba in 2006 to provide regular open-water dive experiences to fledging and senior divers alike. He trains neophytes in his full-sized pool, letting them control their buoyancy to drop to the full twelve-foot depth after they master underwater breathing fundamentals in the shallow end. He also oversees scuba certification training during group dives at the Piedmont Dive Rescue Association Lake Norman Quarry. The former dig site provides plenty of underwater excitement with schools of fish and sunken objects to explore, such as the quarry manager's shed which used to house instructions on how not to flood the quarry.
