You're interested in SCUBA diving and want to know what is involved?  To start SCUBA diving you’ll need to first take some lessons.  These will help you understand how to use the SCUBA gear, how to be a safe diver and how breathing compressed air underwater affects your body.  The card you receive upon successful completion of a SCUBA course is called a Certification card.  This is what you will present to purchase SCUBA equipment, and or participate in a SCUBA trip.  The card lets the staff know that you’ve successfully completed training and understand the basics of SCUBA diving.  After you complete your first SCUBA class you may be interested in Advanced courses to increase your diving knowledge.
