Under the Water

What an experience. Watching the water rise outside of your mask, as you submerge in the weightless underwater world of scuba diving, and continue to breath “UNDER WATER”. 12 to 60+ feet! We have programs for all age groups. We love sharing our passion for the ocean and our world underwater. We can prepare you for that warm water trip, involve you in our local diving or prepare you to enter the dive industry, we provide it all.
