SCUBA Class takes approximately 12 hours of Book/Classroom time, 12 hours of Pool time and 5  Open Water dives.  It requires that you be in reasonably good health, reasonably fit and able to swim.  The class work covers the Underwater Environment, Diving Physics and Physiology, First Aid, Safety and the use of the equipment.  The pool work includes a Swim Test, Use of Snorkeling Equipment, and Use of SCUBA Equipment.  After passing the pool and class work, you will demonstrate (mostly to yourself), that you really do know how to SCUBA dive!  We already know that you will pass or you would not be there.   After this, you are certified and have a new world to explore!  Minimum age for Junior SCUBA Diver is 10, with approval of the Instructor.
