You don't have to be a certified scuba diver to take part in the Roddenberry Dive Team but we encourage you to find a local dive shop and get certified. Make sure that you find a dive shop affiliated with a reputable certifying agency like the National Association of Underwater Instructors (NAUI).
Diving can lead to adventures in exotic tropical locales and an exciting lifetime profession anywhere in the world. Choosing NAUI training means you're only satisfied with the very best. NAUI has the highest training standards in the diving industry and NAUI divers enjoy a worldwide reputation for being accomplished underwater explorers where each breath turns a new page in a journey into the unknown.
Scuba diving is the ultimate role playing activity where you live each moment and venture into places where no one else has been before. Experience weightlessness like an astronaut orbiting the Earth. Breathe underwater while suspended in a cool, refreshing, aquatic world. See strange and exotic fishes and other denizens of the deep like only other NAUI divers do.

Skin Diver/Junior Skin Diver
Imagine floating on a clear sea of liquid watching fishes, crustaceans, corals - everything from dolphins to dugongs face-to-face. Your NAUI Instructor will coach you through the process of snorkeling and breath-hold diving and your fun will grow as your skills increase!
Fun for the whole family, this certification class is for 8 year-olds and older whether you are an accomplished swimmer or someone who has never spent time in the water. (Even the younger family members can share the fun: 5-year olds and older can enjoy a "Snorkeling for Kids of All Ages" non-certification class.)
Once you've completed your training and two open water dives, you will have the skills you need to be a comfortable and safe Skin Diver. And, you can use what you've learned towards the next step of becoming a NAUI Scuba Diver.
