Q: Can I still dive if I don't know how to swim?
A: For all certification courses it is a prerequisite that you are
comfortable in the water, and able to complete a 200 yard swim
(without stopping - no time requirement) and 10 minute survival
Being able to swim is not a requirement for the Discover Scuba
Diving experience, although our experience shows those who are
not comfortable in the water often do not enjoy or complete the dives.
