IS PROFESSIONAL DIVING AN OLYMPIC SPORT ?

Well technically yes, however the professional diving our program consists of SCUBA diving not Olympic diving off of a diving board.  We teach our students recreational diving skills that they can use for careers after high school.

CAN YOU DIVE WITHOUT GETTING YOUR HAIR WET ?

Unfortunately, no.  In order to enjoy what the vast seas have to offer, your hair must get wet.

HOW DO YOU BREATHE UNDERWATER ?

We use special tanks filled with compressed air and depending on many factors including depth, time, exertion level, and breathing rate our tanks can last anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours !

DO YOU WEAR PFD’S UNDERWATER ?

No, we wear weight belts. 🙂

WHAT DO YOU SEE DOWN THERE ?

Nothing if you’re diving in NY Harbor.  No actually there’s a lot to see down there including stripped  bass, horseshoe crabs, eels, killifish, comb jellies, mussels, blue claw crabs, and our favorite oysters !
