Try Scuba

Try Scuba In Denver


Bet You’ve Always Wanted To Try Scuba Diving.  Right?

Maybe you watched a cool movie on television showing scuba divers playing with dolphins or one of your friends just returned from a fun dive trip to the “Islands” or maybe you’ve always dreamed of diving on a WWII wreck. Whatever your reason, in no time at all we’ll have you blowing bubbles underwater, doing somersaults, handstands and just about any other fun thing you can imagine.

Our Try Scuba Diving Experience is fun, easy to do and a great way to experience what it’s like to be weightless underwater.  And the really cool part is that we have two Try Scuba programs from which to choose.  One at A-1 Scuba & Travel Aquatics Center and another at the Denver Downtown Aquarium!

Here’s What You’ll Learn

Your instructor will describe and review some of the basic guidelines you need to know in order to safely dive underwater such as; breath continuously, never hold your breath, always dive with a buddy and learn ways to equalize the pressure in your ears and sinuses, etc.  From there, you’ll head to the water and experience one of the most unique activities you could ever imagine.
