Aquatic Discovery, our sponsor, is starting an open water (beginning) certification class on August 4th. Please consider checking in with them if you are interested in diving yet haven't been certified yet. I have found that they are the least expensive, smallest classes and nicest people to interact with. If there are more than 4 people they will open another class unless the class prefers otherwise. This small group interaction is so important for you comfort level and skill development as well as personal attention and feedback.
I encourage you to navigate to their page and peruse their class information. They are also incredibly helpful on the phone and in person if you have questions.
Experienced divers may also consider taking classes with them such as advanced, navigation, rescue...etc...If they get enough people, they will try to open a class.
Meet other local people interested in scuba diving and aquatic adventure. Exchange information about underwater exploration, travel and much more. Some organized dives but take advantage of the bulletin board to find buddies!
