This past weekend, Diventures Captian Nemo’s in Columbia, Missouri hosted 40 scuba students at the Mizzou Aquatic Center. The student’s skill levels ranged from beginning to intermediate, to rescue diving. The beginner classes focused on entry-level skills needed to become a certified scuba diver. The last step before certification will take place in Arkansas, where students will perform open water dives.

Scuba diving opens the door to a world most people don’t get to see. Many students are looking forward to traveling once they are certified. “I am looking forward to going to Hawaii in January and hopefully many other diving trips.” said one student.

Some students are getting certified for other reasons. One student, Amy Sue Guinn (pictured right), is an ASL interpreter and hopes to become a dive instructor so she can teach diving to people who are hearing impaired.
