Swim or Dive splits the scuba experience into two sessions. During Thursday-night sessions, fledgling aquanauts learn about safety and equipment during a classroom lecture. On a future Sunday, they return for a four-hour pool session, putting theory into practice as they splash and float around with included equipment.
Swim or Dive
Founded by Louis Emile, a 28-year instructing veteran who received training from the Los Angeles County Underwater Instructors Association, Swim or Dive combines swimming and scuba lessons under the same roof. Red Cross–certified instructors lead private swimming lessons for students aged 6 months to adults. NAUI-certified instructors helm the scuba classes, guiding pupils aged 10 and older through introductory and full-certification courses offering lifetime certification. Beyond training, Swim or Dive also acts as a lifeguard referral center, training lifeguards in areas such as CPR, first aid, and slow-motion nacho eating before losing them to monitor pool and ocean parties.
