Welcome to our Pool Info Page!

 We offer pool sessions at various locations, including the Algin Sutton Outdoor Pool, EG Roberts Indoor Pool, and the Olympic-sized Expo City Pool. We are excited to have you join us for a fun and engaging pool session! Everyone is welcome to come practice in the pool, whether you're a fun diver or a student.

After purchasing your ticket, your spot will be reserved, and a reminder email will be sent a few days before the pool session. This email will include the address, hours, and additional details about your class. Please note that the pool session is an add-on to the certification fee. 

If you haven't done so already, please add the PADI Open Water Course or Freediving course to your cart and purchase it along with the pool session.

We strive to make your experience as convenient as possible, and there will be plenty of free parking available near the pool facility.
