Upon students' arrival, instructors outfit them with all necessary gear and a full tank of air before explaining fundamental diving skills. Pupils then get a chance to dive and play in the shallow end of an outdoor pool, which is monitored by a scuba dive master. After underwater playtime, teachers help to remove gear and direct visitors to locker rooms with showers. Customers are encouraged to bring waterproof cameras, sunblock, and friends, who can sunbathe and observe. Complimentary drinking water is available, along with sodas and snacks for purchase.

The Dive Shop

In the early 1960s in the Navy, Don Dibble embarked upon what would become a decades-long career in scuba diving. After 10 years in the service, he founded the Texas State University scuba program, to which he still devotes many hours. In 1972, Don opened The Dive Shop to spread his passion and scuba know-how to the uninitiated and those scared by all the sand in the movie Jaws.

At the shop, two experienced instructors head up classes in an outdoor pool. The sessions cover everything from snorkeling to securing an NAUI certification with structured dips in the pool and local lakes. The shelves in the pro shop brim with gear for training and recreational dives from brands such as ScubaPro, Bare, and Trident.:m]]
