CONTINUING YOUR EDUCATION AT DIP 'N DIVE!
You just got certified, what else is there to do?
You have a plethora of opportunities to expand your knowledge of diving! There are several more “levels” and/or classes/certifications that you can obtain depending on what your interests are. You’ve been taught the basics of diving. Let us help teach you more!
Think about it this way:
- When you were 16 and you first got your driver’s license, did that mean that you were ready to drive in traffic, in rain, in snow, etc?
- Well, the same idea can be used towards diving.
- Are you ready to dive in water that has a current?
- Are you ready to navigate underwater by yourself or even do a night dive?
- What about if you want to see things that are a bit deeper than you were certified in?
- Is it safe to do things that you’ve never been taught?
- Is learning a new type a dive from a friend or family member the “safest” way to learn?
SCUBA CLINICS AND GAMES:
Every year during the winter months Dip 'N Dive gives divers a chance to enhance their diving skills with our series of pool dives designed to improve you diving skills for safety and enjoyment. Dip 'N Dive will have instructors there just for you! We want every diver to be comfortable and confident enough to enjoy every dive they do.
Great one to start with! This pool dive is designed to be different for each person who participates. Some people want to just get in the pool and swim around themselves and practice on their own. Other divers may have been out of the water for some time and need more assistance so our instructors will lend a hand in reviewing you’re basic SCUBA skills. Whatever you need, we can help!
Air Consumption Clinic
The mystery of air consumption. “Why do I use so much air? Why do very experienced divers use a lot less air than I do? What can I do to improve my air consumption and lengthen my dives?” These are some of the most common questions asked by divers. This clinic is designed to answer all of these questions and many more about improving your air consumption on any dive. You will be taught all the little tricks and skills that your instructor employs to help you safely improve your breathing rate.
Finally, solve the mystery of buoyancy! Learn the secrets of true buoyancy control with our instructors. Proper buoyancy control will help you conserve energy, use less air and add to the safety and enjoyment of any dive. During this pool dive, we will teach you how to properly weight yourself. Our instructors will also teach you several different techniques that you can practice to help you achieve the true bliss of neutral buoyancy. (don’t bounce up and down anymore).
Every diver hopes they will never have to be involved in a SCUBA rescue. The best way not to worry about how you will react in an emergency is to be properly trained. This pool dive is designed to review basic SCUBA rescue procedures. Everything from identifying potential problems and solving them before they turn into real ones, to actually practicing real SCUBA rescues will be covered with your instructor in this pool dive. (Learn to be a good buddy)!
