Open Water Classes are from 4 to 6 students! Meanwhile, our students to get MORE one on one time with the diving Instructor. Furthermore, most shops tend to put as many students in a class as Diving Standards will allow. This means having as many as 10-12 students per instructor. With this many students you do a lot of kneeling and not diving! Diving is what you should be doing in order to understand “BUOYANCY”.

In this paragraph, I’m going to discuss why Scubastop is your best choice. Firstly, the only way to truly learn a skill is by actually doing what you’ll have to do in the real world, not kneeling on a platform watching other students do skills. Secondly, you have to put in the time and practice to understand bouyancy. There are, however, some people who will disagree. Our Instructors are available to go diving with you when we are at out local dive training facility. Just call to let us know your coming. In conclusion,  Buoyancy is what makes GREAT DIVERS! Buoyancy is what keeps you off the Coral Reef, it’s what makes you feel like an underwater Astronaut. The only way you can master buoyancy is by diving,  LET’S GET DIVING!!!
