Learn to Dive with Sink or Swim Scuba

sept ow class
fusion tech drysuit

We teach new students using Aqua Lung Dry suits

Stay warm and dry!  Sink or Swim Scuba includes drysuit training in our open water course with Aqua Lung Fusion dry suits for dry dive comfort in our colder ocean environment.

Your gear is very important!

Your safety is our priority whether your training or renting.  Our training and rental gear is replaced regularly, when it’s a year old we offer it for sale.  Our gear is always in top condition.

Our Instructors are PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainers!

They’ve trained and dived in our waters and know the environment.

You will always be looked after above and below water for your comfort and safety during our pool training and ocean dives because we have the highest student/professional ratio.

We maximize pool and ocean time for our students.

In the pool you will learn and practice dive skills with your dive professional and the other student divers.  In the ocean you’ll demonstrate your skills and dive with your new dive buddies under the guidance of your PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer Instructor and our Dive masters.
