Other considerations

Due to CoViD-19 we are requiring all of our EMPLOYEES and CUSTOMERS wear facemasks that cover their nose and mouth while INSIDE our store. All divers are expected to have completed their academics, and medical questionnaire before beginning the in-water training portion of the certification class. If you answer yes to a question on the medical questionnaire you will need a Dr to complete a form giving medical clearance to dive.
