Learn to Dive Classroom Option July 11
Learn to Dive – Classroom Option
That first breath underwater is a thrilling experience; but even more exciting is the opportunity to visit fish in their natural environment, swim over pristine reefs, and explore mysterious wrecks. Learn to dive with Jupiter Dive Center and join the millions of divers with basic certifications. It all starts here.
The Fun Part
Whether you dive on vacation or live by the ocean, going beneath the waves opens up a whole new realm of possibilities. Experience the weightlessness of neutral buoyancy as you explore the underwater environment. The third largest barrier reef runs off Southern Florida’s coast and offers divers the opportunity to visit the only coral reef in the United States. Vibrant fish, curious turtles, and goliath groupers are all just a splash away.
What to Expect
Students have a choice between eLearning and classroom academics. If you are interested in eLearning, click here. If you’re more comfortable in a classroom setting, you’re in the right place. The course begins at Jupiter Dive Center on a Wednesday night from 6 – 9 p.m. That weekend, you will practice basic water skills such as clearing your mask and regulator recovery in a pool or other “confined water” location. The same schedule will repeat the following week, only this time, you’ll demonstrate your newfound skills in the ocean. The final session will be held on the third Wednesday and students will learn everything they need to be certified to dive with enriched air (nitrox)—a fabulous benefit considering the depth of the reefs in Jupiter (don’t worry, we’ll teach you why!) Upon successful completion of the course, you’ll be certified as both an Open Water or Junior Open Water Scuba Diver (depending on your age) and an Enriched Air—Nitrox diver. Please note: Classes range in size from 2-8 students and students must be a minimum of 12 years of age.
