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.

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.
