    Snorkeling for Families $35.00 per person

The underwater world is a fascinating place that can be discovered with a minimal amount of effort and the use of a mask, fins, and a snorkel. This class is all pool work with poolside lectures and training tips. Snorkeling for Families introduces individuals and families to the recreation of exploring underwater magic from above. Because there is no age requirement for snorkeling, it is an activity that can be shared by the whole family. This course will train you to select proper-fitting skin diving equipment (mask, snorkel and fins), adjust and don equipment, use mask and snorkel at the surface, use proper kicking technique, clearing the snorkel and making shallow surface dives, returning to the surface clearing the snorkel. In addition, this program increases confidence in water activities for the entire family.

Your training will take place in the classroom and in the pool. You will be required to have your own personal gear for the class and it must be of dive quality. See sidebar under "personal gear" for items required. You will also be required to have a copy of Dennis Graver's "Scuba Diving". This text can be ordered through UDM Aquatic Services. You'll sign a learning agreement which outlines our commitment to you and your responsibilities as a student. At the completion of the classroom and pool sessions you will do a series of Open Water dives at a local lake or quarry. You may also elect to take a referral and do the dives in a warm water location with another instructor. Another option is to allow me to conduct your checkout dives on an excursion to a warm water destination on a scheduled trip or in the case of private lessons cover my expenses for a trip to do these checkouts should you choose not to do them locally. All lessons will be private or semi private. Please Contact Us for rates for both types of classes. You will also be responsible for renting gear for your open water checkout dives. Either Pittsburgh Scuba or Dive World has rental gear available.  I will inform you of the requirements as to what gear you will need to rent at our first meeting.

 

 For those already certified as Open Water divers with SEI Diving or having YMCA cards who wish to continue training with me in one of my advanced or specialty classes all you need do is sign up. For those certified through other agencies or with an instructor I'm not familiar with I require an interview and perhaps skill evaluation session in the pool and/or open water. Some skills required to earn OW  certification with SEI Diving are not taught by other agencies. I require that you be able to perform these in order to earn certification. It is stated in the learning agreement you will sign for each class and is stated here. Payment of tuition is not a guarantee of certification. It is a guarantee of training. Certification is earned not bought. Failure to achieve the skills required by SEI Diving and UDM Aquatic Services will result in no card being issued. We will train you till you are able to meet the standards.
