    New Class Opportunities

    Can’t make a regularly scheduled class time for Scuba Skills Update, Snorkeling or even Open Water Diver? Choose a private session with an instructor. We are able to accommodate your time availability with some private sessions either at the shop or in the pool. With a little schedule comparison, we can get you into the pool or the classroom in the evening, daytime or weekends. There is a small fee for this private service but if that makes you able to complete your course, it’s well worth it. Click here to email Brian today to schedule your sessions.

    Nitrox Yes!

    It’s one of those certifications to complete during the winter as 1) you don’t have any dives to do and 2) on that dive vacation you will feel better, have more energy and be safer by diving Nitrox instead of Air.

    Usually the 3rd Monday of the month but can be a one on one arranged class also.

    Check out the dates and register here.

    Update your Scuba Skills!

    Planning that warm water dive destination trip, we should also think about getting the rust off of our diving skills BEFORE you go on that trip. Every dive agency, therefore almost every dive destination, has a refresher or Scuba Skills Update requirement if you haven’t had a dive (and can prove it with a log book!) within the last 6 months. Don’t spend your first day on the remedial boat demonstrating the things you know already, get a Scuba Skills Update with MadisonScuba in the pool. It will cost you half the price and you get your entire first day of diving back on your vacation.

    Snorkeling Gear and Classes too!

    We have new snorkeling gear at the shop! And we’ll teach you how to use it! New from Aqualung – Aqua Glide fins. Snorkeling class every time we are in the pool. Read more here …
