$25 for Discover Scuba Course ($50 Value)
During two half-hour briefings, PADI-certified instructors go over basic diving knowledge and safety. Students then plunge into the pool for 60 minutes of in-water instruction. They take their first breaths under water, float weightlessly, and practice valuable scuba techniques. Instructors provide all necessary equipment, and time spent in the pool can be credited toward a PADI open-water course as well as full PADI certification. Classes are usually scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:30 p.m.
U.B. Diving's founder Sean Smyrichinsky and his team of experienced scuba divers create scenes of underwater adventure every day from their fully stocked shop and on-site dive school. Their scuba charter boat, equipped with hot showers and a heated cabin, travels to areas such as Chrome Island or Flora Islet so divers can frolic with giant octopi and six-gill sharks beneath the water's surface. A PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer, Sean also teaches classes that grant novices their first dive into open waters, taking the most committed students to Dive Master levels or preparing ocean walkers for careers as ambassadors to Atlantis. Additionally, Sean and his crew rent out gear by the day and contract themselves out for deep diving and wreck exploration through their commercial division.
