Notes from Travel Talk - Let's Talk About Scuba!

It was great to be back in decent enough health to put on another Travel Talk! November's travel talk was hosted by Diventures and was all about Scuba - what it takes to get certified, the various types of scuba, and recommendations on where to dive.

Ethan told us that there are 4 phases to scuba certification at Diventures. During these phases, you are able to get all of your equipment fitted exactly to you so that you are as comfortable as possible. Classes are offered all year round with various time options. You can also sign up for private sessions. Once you are certified, you can add additional special certifications, including but not limited to underwater photography, boat diving, and stress and rescue.

Diventures believes that the best places to dive are:
- Grand Cayan
- Australia
- Cozumel **This one is the most popular spot in the world!**
- Thailand
- Curacao
- Bonaire
There is a difference between the Atlantic and Pacific, Caribbean and Asia so they recommend checking out more than one spot!

If you're not sure you want to "dive right in" to a scuba certification, Diventures offers a "Try Scuba" class on Sundays. It is all ages and only $75. If you decide after that class that you do want to get scuba certified, they'll apply $50 of the class fee to your next Scuba class!

You do need to be able to swim and to get medical clearance from a doctor, but most people are able to get certified.

Diventures has an attached retail store with a variety of diving gear, and a pool that goes to 14ft deep for plenty of practice. They also offer some group trips to various diving destinations, and you can find flyers for those trips in the retail store.

If you prefer to scuba without the group, or would like to set up your own group, please don't hesitate to contact Operation Relax!
