Scuba Diving is a fantastic hobby. Once you are certified, you’ll want to explore everything the underwater world has to offer. On the following pages we’ll give you a glimpse at what you can expect as a certified PADI scuba diver.
LIFE AS A CERTIFIED DIVER
Sometimes you don’t have to go far to experience something magical. At Athens Scuba, we believe that there’s something interesting and “dive worthy” in almost every body of water. Mind you, don’t go diving where you can’t see any further than 3 feet.
Many certified divers feel intimidated to go on dive trips as beginners. Scuba divers thrive with experience, but you can only build up that experience if you go diving! It doesn’t matter where you gain experience as long as you keep diving at least once a year.
We organize dive trips for individuals as well as our own group trips. We will try to show you as many different spots and locations as possible. Please contact us if you have questions about potential locations.
PADI CONTINUING EDUCATION
To avoid going long periods of time without scuba diving, you can always join us for a local dive trip to Lake Jocassee or you can continue your dive experience by signing up for PADI’s continuing education programs. Everyone has heard the saying “You never stop learning” and this is true with scuba diving. Diving regularly keeps you prepared for any trip that may come your way! Therefore, PADI has a wide variety of continuing education courses, fitting for everyone and every interest.
