Course Outline

To help you practice swimming with your scuba gear, your instructor will demonstrate moving underwater and will communicate with you using hand signals. You should:

  • Kick with your fins—slowly and from the hip for the flutter kick.
  • Stay streamlined with your arms out front and your equipment tucked in.
  • Swim slowly to conserve air and energy.
  • Spend some time swimming around, getting familiar with using the equipment and being underwater. Play games and have fun!
