BRING A BUDDY SCUBA TRY IT Discover life underwater together.

Try Scuba Experience Together


Sometimes learning to dive on your own can be intimidating.  Bringing someone you trust who knows the sport can help ease some of that stress and make the experience even more enjoyable!  Especially great for certified parent divers looking to bring their kids into the sport.


Have you ever wondered what it's like to breathe underwater? If you want to find out but aren't quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Scuba Try It will let you try scuba diving to see if you like it. Try It is usually about an hour, and a dive professional will be with you the entire time, helping you, making sure you’re comfortable, and answering any questions you have. While not an actual scuba certification, during the Scuba Try It experience you'll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

If you are excited about scuba diving but initially nervous, then a Scuba Try It is for you! Great idea for those kids interested in Scuba Camp, but want to try it first! 


The "Bring a Buddy" Scuba Try It is designed to help you entice  a friend or family member to try scuba with you.  So if your certified and want to show someone you know how to scuba, then sign the 2 of you up for the bring a buddy.


What You Learn

You learn the basics you need to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. One thing you'll learn is that you really can breathe underwater and whether you like doing that or not. You will:

  • Learn what wearing scuba equipment feels like and how easy it is to move around underwater while wearing it.
  • Find out what it's like to breathe underwater and learn whether you can be comfortable there.
  • Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course when you are ready to take the next step.

The Scuba Gear You Use

All the equipment you will need is included in a Scuba Try It experience. You'll use all the basic scuba gear including a mask and snorkel, fins, a buoyancy compensating jacket (BCD) that carries your weights and scuba tank, a scuba regulator to breathe from, and instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply. 


To participate in the Scuba Try It program you must be at least 10 years old.  One participant must be able to provide proof of certification (either a physical card, or through an online dive check).

Registering for Two People

Please note that one purchase is for two people.  Please sign up either participant for the order.  Then, either place in the notes the first name, last name, and email address (if available) of the 2nd participant.  That, or you must respond with the information in the confirmation email you receive after sign up.

Each place available is for each group of two available.  So if it says there are "3 places available," it means there are 6 spots open.  Purchasing a space available is a registration for 2 of the 6 spots open. "3 spaces available" will then become "2 spaces available" with 4 spots open.
