Discover Scuba in January

Come Learn what Scuba Diving is all about! Are you looking for a new adventure? Have you always wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you want to try scuba diving, but aren’t quite ready to plunge into a certification course, our Discover Scuba Diving experience is for you. 

acac Albemarle Square Aquatics has teamed up with Dive Connections, a PADI Five Star Dive Center, located in Charlottesville to add this Discover Scuba Diving experience. While not a scuba certification course, Discover Scuba is an easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

This 3 hour program will give you the opportunity not just to try scuba but to learn about it. You’ll learn about the scuba equipment, buoyancy, equalizing air spaces and much, much more. In the water you’ll learn key skills that you’ll use during every scuba dive and experience what it’s like to be weightless and breathe underwater!

Your adventure includes lots of time to play, swim through hoops, stand on your head and do summersaults – all the things that are possible when gravity isn’t an issue! 

Diving Event Date & Time: Saturday, January 30 | 2:00-5:00pm

Discover Scuba Cost: acac Members $69, Non-members $75

Location: acac Albemarle Square

Your payment must be made one week in advance to guarantee your spot in order to be sure we have enough gear and staffing to accommodate you. Pricing above includes everything you will need: masks, fins, and all scuba gear. But don’t forget your bathing suit and a towel!
