Have you ever wondered what it would be like to try out scuba diving?
The Scuba Shack in Rocky Hill has teamed up the Brownstone Exploration and Discovery Park to provide beginner lessons in the Portland quarry. This "Discover" course doesn't result in certification, but it does give participants a real taste of what our amazing underwater world is all about.
"When you can drop down in the Caribbean, or even here, there are eels, bass, fish everywhere. You can float among them," says scuba expert Ed Hayes, who believes in taking the learning process slow.
Scuba lessons will be offered at the Quarry through the fall.
