    I've had the opportunity to be involved in several of this classes. Discover Scuba or Try Scuba is more of a CLASS than a course. Here is how it really works. You pay for an e-learning course which is short but interesting, proper and professional. You will learn alot! Then you call the shop and tell them that your e-learning is complete and you would like to finish it up by meeting with an Instructor and "trying it out". A date and time will be set and your certified instructor will meet you at the dive shop where you will be provided ALL of the gear needed to breath underwater! You bring a bathing suit and towel. After a short briefing you and the instructor will get in the pool and begin. This takes a couple of ours and you spend 90% in the water. So not as much a "course" as a short class where you get to try it out. It's easy and fun. If you have always wanted to try it, bring a friend and mark it off your bucketlist!
