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.
