Scuba diving is a fun activity anyone from the age of 10 can enjoy. While there are plenty of places around Colorado to go scuba diving, it’s also a great activity to learn before you escape on a trip to the islands. However, as much fun as it can be, it’s important to have the right scuba gear and training. That’s why you only want to trust A-1 Scuba in Denver for all your diving needs. We have one of the only compressed air refill locations in the state along with many qualities we possess that separate us from the competition. Once you see what we offer first-hand, you will never go anywhere else.

Training Classes

Before you can go diving, you must first get the proper training. This involves learning about diving by reading your online digital manual and attending pool and classroom sessions. This can be accomplished in as little as a single weekend. A-1 Scuba offers this and more. As long as you are at least ten years of age, are in good physical health, and have adequate swimming abilities, you can soon learn to dive.

We offer a large variety of beginner courses that fit nearly everyone’s schedule. We even offer private instruction for those with busy schedules. We also have KIDS ONLY classes for those who are 10-14 years old. Come and let us teach you the fun, ease, and enjoyment of diving.
