BSA Scuba Award

The BSA Scuba Award is an exciting activity we recommend for Boy Scout Patrols. You get in and experience Scuba under the direct supervision of our trained Scuba professionals, without committing to the full certification program.

You will get to breath underwater & use Scuba equipment on a shallow dive - as well as learn some of the very basics of diving. 

This program is about 4 hours total and participants will earn the BSA Scuba Award.
