Scuba Certification Adventures 2018

SSBG scuba

Dive in to adventure

Adventures of all kinds wait Scouts with a taste for the sea including specific training geared toward nautical education and safety. Discover the excitement of SCUBA diving in the warm beautiful water surrounding the Galveston Bay. Crews are trained by professional instructors in our specially designed twelve-foot diving well.SSBG scuba

Sign up for a week of scuba training and adventure where you will earn certification from the Professional Association of Dive Instructors (PADI). Your dive itinerary features diving instruction, marine life studies, and other underwater adventures. All food, lodging and equipment is included.

Your crew will receive a PADI open water SCUBA certification for each member, providing they are able to complete all the required training modules both in and out of the water.  

If a member of your crew is already open water certified, they will still be able to participate by taking a SCUBA Review Refresher for the week and completing several of the PADI Specialty Adventure Courses.

BSA policy states that a local council operations may not compress their own air for filling tanks and that the equipment utilized should come from professional sources. Because of this policy, the Bay Area Council has enlisted the services of the Texas Dive Center. The Texas Dive Center is affiliated with the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) and will be the lead instructors and staff on site completing the certification course.
