"The best way to find out how much fun it is to scuba dive, is to to try it. There's no obligation ... we are confident that, once you have tried it, sooner or later you will become a diver!"


Part A - The Topside Briefing 

Your TRY SCUBA begins with a thorough explanation of scuba equipment and the terms that divers use. We will discuss the basics of breathing underwater, diving safety rules, and you will even learn several of the hand signals that divers use to communicate underwater. Before you leave there will be plenty of time to ask and get answers to your questions about learning to dive. 


Part B - The Pool Dive

Dive Instructor and Student in Introduction to Scuba PoolThis is where the fun really begins. Your instructor will help you gear-up and enter the water where you will experience the thrill of blowing bubbles and breathing underwater!

There will be plenty of time for you to get comfortable with the equipment and find out what you can expect to see, hear, and feel as you descend into the underwater world. You will also have the opportunity to see what it is like to be a student in class.

All too soon, it will be time for the pool dive to end. We hope you will leave convinced that you want to begin your dive training. There's no obligation and no pressure. We know that sooner or later, once you have tried it, you will become a diver!

What do I need to bring with me to Try Scuba?
Definitely bring a bathing suit, a towel and a smile because you are sure to have a good time! In addition, bring your completed Try Scuba Registration Form (both pages).
What clothes should I wear?
Plan on wearing comfortable clothes and shoes that are easy to change in and out of. Sweatpants, gym clothes, and windpants are common. Of course, it's perfectly OK to wear street clothes in case you are coming directly from work.
Do I need to bring a scuba mask or fins?
No, we provide all of the equipment you will need for the Try Scuba experience.
I answered "yes" on one or more of the lines on the Medical History portion of the Try Scuba Form. What do I need to do?
Please contact us to discuss the next steps. In most cases, you will still be able to scuba dive, however, it will be necessary for you to first consult with your physician. There is a separate form that the physician will need to sign.
I have already registered for a Try Scuba in the pool but my physician can't work me in before my scheduled date. Can I come anyway?
Unfortunately, your Try Scuba will have to be rescheduled or you can see another physician. We can refer you to another doctor who is qualified in Dive Medicine. We want you to experience the excitement and adventure of diving but your health and safety are always our pimary concern.
Even though I answerd the Medical Questionnaire with a "yes", I'm really in excellent shape, excercise regularly and feel great. Can't you make an exception to the rule about seeing a physician?
The rules and regulations regarding scuba training are established by the World Recreational Scuba Training Council (WRSTC). We must follow those rules to maintain our accreditation. Our staff are not medically trained and can't make determinations about your health. They are not able to grant any exceptions.
