Learn scuba diving right now !

I know you've dreamed about it before : diving with sharks, exploring shipwrecks, diving for sunken treasure, or just learning how to dive for your next trip to Hawaii or Australia.

If you've been on the fence about scuba diving, and the only thing that stops you from your lifelong dream is your finances, don't wait any longer !

Every year Underwater Sports hosts the largest consumer dive sale in the United States - Diver's Fair.

That's where I got my Open Water certificate last year.

During Diver's Fair days, class tuition is only.... $99 ! Though, you'll also need to buy a book ( I think, it's about $35), and will get your own ( rented or borrowed) snorkeling gear (fins, mask and snorkel ), you are still saving a lot of money !

Before the classes start, you'll need to read your book and fill out the "tests/quizzes" ( don't worry, you'll go over it again during your first class).

After spending a few hours in the classroom....you go straight to a swimming pool ( confined dives ). That's where the fun begins !

Here you’ll learn everything from setting up your scuba gear to how to easily get water out of your scuba mask without surfacing. You’ll also practice some emergency skills, like sharing air or replacing your scuba mask.

After your confined water dives, you continue learning during two ( Sat/Sun) open water dives with your PADI Instructor at a dive site.

Our dive site was at Les Davis fishing pier in Tacoma. It’s a very popular site, and has many of the scrapped pieces from the old Tacoma narrows bridge dumped there creating a nice artificial reef. The site provides abundant and diverse marine life in relatively shallow depths of 20-35 fsw. You'll see lots of sea stars, crabs and perch !

I really hoped that I would be able to get a discount for Advanced Open Water class during the Fair, but I guess, it's only for beginners.

So, don't miss your chance to get into this wonderful outdoor activity ( and save some money )!
