You will be required to swim 50 yards, tread water for 10 minutes and swim underwater. If you are the least bit concerned, give us a call to chat before you sign up for class. 

Is it normal to be nervous learning how to Scuba Dive?

It is totally normal to have some apprehension when learning how to Scuba Dive! You should also be very excited to learn to dive as well. The excitement must outweigh the apprehension or nervousness!
