SCUBA (Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus) is offered as an elective during the academic day for grades 9-12. Students will have the opportunity to earn four certifications: Open Water Diver, First Aid/CPR, Advanced Diver, and Rescue Diver.
Throughout the year students will learn to be safer, more knowledgeable, and have better technique as compared to other dive programs due to the additional time spent on the courses. Students will learn well beyond the basic diving physics, physiology, and decompression theory that are typically obtained.
The class will begin with the most basic scuba course, Open Water Diver. Once the basic skills are mastered we will move into the Advanced course for a introduction to underwater ecology, navigation, search and recovery, advanced propulsion, low visibility, and deep diving. Rescue diver will be our final diving course which will train students to conduct water rescues.

History of Scuba at Farragut
Since 1991, hundreds of our students have become SCUBA certified through an after-school activity program under the guidance of Capt. Bill Hardman who took students all over Florida to places such as Crystal River, Rainbow River, West Palm Beach, and the Florida Keys.
