You must hold a certification to take this class, as it is a review of skills you’ve already mastered.

You’ll be able to practice assembly and disassembly of gear, and remember what it’s like to carry all that weight with you above and below water. After a short briefing, you’ll reconquer skill sets, and then practice anything else you’d like, especially buoyancy.

You’ll need to bring your own mask, fins, and snorkel, as well as a bathing suit and towel. If you’re in need of something, please find the best gear at the most affordable prices at our shop.
