Aqua - Tuff is a combination of our Aqua-Safe and the PADI Discover Scuba Diving Course. introduces the student to scuba diving in a highly supervised and relaxed manner. It dispels common misconceptions about scuba by allowing individuals to try it for themselves. Under the guidance of a PADI Professional, students learn about the basic physics of diving, the effects of diving on human physiology, safety concepts, mechanic of equipment, communication and complete underwater tasks set by PADI worldwide.
Students complete skills under the close supervision of the instructor and at a depth where they can stand out of the water at any time. Based on performance, students progress through the course demonstrating that they meet measurable learning objectives from simple to intermediate to complex.
Once skills are completed to the satisfaction of the instructor, the students have a choice to perform tasks in the deeper end of the pool. They then practice their new found skills and explore new limitations with movement using balance and breathing to maintain neutral buoyancy, remaining suspended in one spot upside down in the pool and experience the feeling of flying or.
