Scuba Certification - Open Water Diver Course at The Dive Shop On McEver


In our Scuba certification course that we teach, you learn more than a new set of skills. You learn when and how to use them.  You master basic fundamentals first and build upon them gradually so you don't feel rushed.  Instead, you feel confident and comfortable. You learn at your own pace-- however fast or slow
Be prepared to laugh and smile a lot. And, don't be surprised if you come away absolutely thrilled. Scuba diving does that to people.


Please Note
