With 100-150ft visibility, entering and descending into the ocean
can speed up one's heart and cause such an exhilaration as one sees
the bursting colors of red, orange, blue, violet, yellow reflected
by coral walls and fish schools.
Scuba diving is one of the most exciting sports one can undertake.
It provides the great opportunity to explore and experience the
oceans, seas, lakes and see both marine and freshwater organisms in
their natural habitat. For safety and information, a basic OW scuba
certification is required.
Dive safely. Plan your dive, dive you plan.
Depending on budget, time and skill level, and interested divers,
trip can be planned locally (Lake Erie, Yough River, Summersville),
of state (Florida, NorthC, California), or at another country
St Maartens, Roatan, Fiji). These dive trips are always planned with
budget in mind to compensate for the fact the scuba diving is a
relatively expensive sport. We join other local dive clubs during
their dive trips as well.
Before you participate in a diving trip please print and fill out
the diver's profile form and give
to the scuba diving chair.
The Explorers Club now owns scuba diving gear that it can lend to
members. We have 2 complete sets of dive gear (BCD, regulator/octopus/depth and
gauge, fins, masks and snorkel). Efforts are made to consistently
upgrade the gear.

CMU Explorers Scuba is a relatively young
section of the club. It does not yet have its core set of Dive
Masters and Instructors from its members. Diving with other local
clubs is encouraged as it allow our members to interact and learn
from other experienced divers. A well-planned dive with a
designated diving lead makes for a safer trip.
