SSI's Try Scuba Diving Course is an entry-level diving course that introduces you to the underwater world. You'll learn how to breathe through a regulator; how to properly inflate and deflate your buoyancy compensator (BC), which allows you to safely ascend and descend underwater; how to clear your mask in case water leaks in; and more. This diving course takes place in our onsite, indoor, heated pool, and we aim to keep class sizes small to focus on instructing every individual in the class.
There is no online preparation for this course, but you will watch a brief series of videos in our classroom before you enter the water. These videos serve as an introduction to the equipment and terminology, in addition to thoroughly explaining risks and safety procedures. You will earn the SSI Try Scuba recognition rating after completing this program.
- All learning materials
- Rental equipment for pool session (mask, fins, snorkel, BCD, regulator, tank, weights, & wet suit)
