Default Learn to Dive in Weekend Scuba Class

I have a weekend scuba class coming up at MBT Dive Center on August 2nd and 3rd if you know of anyone interested in this kind of schedule for learning to scuba dive.

We will spend about 6 hours onSaturday,August 2nd in the classroom learning about scuba gear, the physiology of diving, the no-decompression dive tables, etc.On Sunday August 3rd, we'll spend 4 to 6 hours in the pool practicing our in-water, scuba skillsand then the following weekend,we'll make our open water dives after which you'll be a certified diver (if you pass the test and be ready to go explore the the beautiful underwater world all over the planet.

It's a great schedule forthose who can't break away during the week. If you sign up before August 1st, the cost will remain the same at $169 or $159 for military and students. After August 1st our price is going up to $199 or$179 if you'remilitary or astudent.

This covers all books, all pool fees, all scuba gear required for class except mask, fins, snorkel and booties, and as a student you receive 10% off the cost of anything you purchase in the store. The only additional feewill come if we decide to go to Vortex Springs for one of our open water dives. There's a $19 fee to get into the springs otherwise, there are no additionalfees.

If you're interested in thisschedulegive me a call or call the shop and ask for the weekend class.

I have 40 years diving experience and make my classes fun.

Sounds like a hell of a deal....would you extend that discount to some Venture Crew (Boy Scouts) boys and girls? And are you going to have anymore classes like this in mid August?

Yes, a NAUI certification is recognized all over the world.



Your NAUI certification demonstrates that youhave all the skills to be a safe, competent scuba diver. By presenting yourNAUI certification card, you'll be allowed to rent scuba gear, and get air fills, charter scubatrips etc. anywhere in the world.

The weekend class takes two weekends. The first weekend is classroom and pool and the second weekend are the open water, checkout dives. After this, provided you demonstrate competence in the waterskills and pass the test,you'll be a NAUI certified scuba diver

Absolutely. Why don't you give me a call andlet's talk about the details. For a youth group like that, we may be able to work out an evenbetter deal for you. We just certified 22 "Young Marines" which is like "Boy Scouts." They had a blast and so did we. We also learned alot about working withand directing youth.

It's about time Nick. This time, try to pay attention to the instructor and not the good looking girl in the classoke

BTW, I shot thesnapper in my pick last week off of Paul's boat. Rich got a 38 lb grouper.

Anyone thinking of getting certified should jump on this deal. It's a great price, and Rich is a great diver.

He was not one of my instructors, but I've learned a lot from him over the past few years by diving and spearfishing with him.

Fred, I've got you and John signed up for the class. If you can go ahead and get your books and watch the DVDs, you'll be ahead of the game. Also, don't forget to beat the Aug 1 price increase and save a little money.

See you Saturday if not before.

Richard
