Introduction to Scuba Diving

  • Jan 24, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is an introductory session to scuba diving. Although this is not the complete PADI certification course, the time spent here WILL contribute to PADI certification if you should decide to go ahead with the full course, which will involve a few more sessions and can be discussed with the instructors on the day of the Meetup itself.

Equipment and compressed air is provided for the price shown. This is a stand-alone session, and you are not committed to taking the full course.

For this Meetup, you should fulfill three criteria:
1. You should be in good general health.
2. You should be able to swim (you don't need to be an athletic swimmer - just able to swim comfortably).
3. You need to read our group terms and conditions here:http://www.meetup.com/TorontoTNT/pages/Liability/

The session will involve 1 hour in the classroom (please bring pens/pencils and paper), followed by 1 hour in a heated pool (please bring swimwear and towels).

The cost shown is the full cost. Please read the refund policy. Payment is by PayPal. Please contact me to arrange alternative ways of payment.

The age minimum is 14 and anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian present.

The facility can be reached by public transport, but there is also free parking at the facility if you choose to drive. If you are driving and can give a member a ride after the event, please say so when you RSVP.

    Hey Anand,
    My friend and I want to sign up but are beginner swimmers. We can travel back and forth but don't know how to tread (stay afloat) in one spot (as silly as it sounds). Do you think we can still come?

    Also, we only have swimming trunks, is there anything else we would need? Let me know.

      Hi Zain, if you can swim across the pool, you should be OK. Swimming trunks and a towel are all you need.

    Hi! I have just begun learning swimming. Would you have this again some time later? I would be keen to join.

      Hi Suneela,
      Don't worry too much about your swimming skills - all you need to do is to be able to swim a short distance - Do you think you will be able to swim a little by the 24th? If so you can join the meetup.

      December 26, 2012

    • Suneela

      Thanks Anand. Let me practice and guess I will RSVP closer to the date if it is still open. Also it would be good if this is held on a weekend. I live in downtown and this place is rather far on a working day.
