For the longest time, it's been my dream to scuba dive and now that dream has become a reality.

In September, I am flying over to the Azores in Portugal with the family and the one thing that I need to cross off my bucket list is to go diving along the reefs.

Thankfully, with the help and generosity of Bob's Sea and Ski, I'm now well educated in Scuba Diving and I have to admit... there's more to the sport/hobby than I imagined!

The class instructor was Dennis Audette who has been teaching and diving for many years and is a professional in the Scuba Diving, Snorkeling and Spear-Fishing field. Dennis teaches these classes every Friday night from 6-8 PM at the U-MASS Dartmouth Indoor Swimming Pool. It's called the "Try SCUBA Experience" and it's designed to teach those who have always wanted the chance to try it, covering all the bases and fundamentals.

The two hour class and pool session includes ALL equipment:

  • Mask
  • Fins
  • Snorkel
  • BC
  • Regulator
  • Tank
  • Wetsut

The best part... the class only costs only $100! You're local, you're supplied.... it doesn't get any better than that. To top it off, once you graduate to the "Open Water Certification Class", the fee carries over and is applied to the course.
