    :

    WOWZERS! So much more than I expected. The classroom time was spent going over just about everything to do from diving. I thought I knew a lot already, especially about equipment but the show and tell segment of class where we were shown just about every piece of equipment proved to be very helpful. The pool experience really helped alot, and with the open dive portion of training on another weekend, we received the training we felt we needed. We are comfortable divers and are ready for new challenges, that’s for sure. We are very impressed with Jimmie and his staff, thanks for the lunches on the dive days. Compliments to the grill master!

    I earned my SSI Open Water certification in October of 2019 with Jimmie as my instructor. Jimmie and the staff at Ski Scuba Center are top-shelf people and I would highly recommend choosing Ski Scuba Center for scuba lessons. Not only will you learn how to dive, you will also learn how to do it safely and what it takes to be a good dive buddy.
