Find out exactly how exciting diving can be! Our exclusive Introduction to SCUBA allows you to get comfortable without a long term commitment and with minimal cash investment.
• Part one - (This part is free and we supply all of the equipment).
We begin with a 15 to 30 minute classroom session discussing the safety features and functions of individual pieces of equipment. After you are comfortable we will discuss what we will be doing in the pool. Once you have a firm understanding of the equipment, its use, and what to do, we will walk into the shallow side of the pool. For 15 minutes or so on the 3' deep pool shelf, you will have the opportunity to breathe and get comfortable with all of the SCUBA equipment. Then we will invite you into the deeper side of the pool. In this 10' deeper area, we continue to show you how easy it is to breathe underwater, how to go up to the surface when you wish, go to the bottom when you wish, or just stay below the surface and swim around.
During this period, you are also learning how easy it is to propel yourself using fins, and why the mask is referred to as your "window" on the underwater world. After the pool session, you can decide if you wish to continue with the experience.
• Part two:
This is the real fun part. Now that you're comfortable in the pool we can schedule an ocean dive. The SCUBA Ocean experience is one on one with an instructor in the Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary. On our prescheduled trips, we supply all of the equipment - from head to toe. Of course, you are welcome to use your personal snorkeling equipment, but we prefer to use our SCUBA equipment. The total cost for this is $175.00*.
(*If you decide to continue on and join an entry level class, this fee is a "stand alone" fee and can NOT be credited against the class).
Regardless of the way you do it, you are going to experience one of the greatest thrills of your life. The Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary is teaming with marine life ranging in size from seals to thumbnail size nudibranchs and snails. The variety and proliferation of life, the rainbow of colors, the whole ocean experience will get you excited like nothing else you've ever experienced.
