Servicing divers in Columbia since 1977, Wateree Dive Center's certified submersion specialists orient the fin-less to the subsurface realm with thorough training. Mammals can test out marine life before trading their lungs to a sea-witch with the Try Scuba course, a one- to two-hour test dive for first-time sea spelunkers. After arming themselves with scuba gear provided by the center, students will explore the depths of a swimming pool, learning to use their air-granting accouterments, maneuver through water, and identify swimmers by their legs. Underwater explorers interested in further subaquatic training will receive a $50 coupon toward open-water-diving classes if they enroll within 60 days.
