For those that are interested in learning how to SCUBA dive, we found a great video series that explains in detail what the process involves, how long it takes to get certified, and how to choose the right gear. The person in this video is getting certified through NAUI, so the method may be slightly different with another organization, but the fundamental points are the same: classwork, pool training, and open water training. The first segment will focus on how to choose a mask, snorkel and fins, and what you can expect from the classwork portion of the process. The open water dives are filmed in a National Marine Sanctuary off Key Largo, giving you a fantastic preview of tropical diving — if that’s not incentive, we don’t know what is!
The series begins in a local dive shop, which is a common place to start for SCUBA training. Tune in next week for the second segment of Getting SCUBA Certified!
