Open Water Students Complete Checkout Dives

Congratulations to Scuba Shack’s latest Open Water Diver class!!

8 student divers completed their checkout dives over this past beautiful weekend at the Brownstone Exploration and Discovery Park in Portland, CT. The students’ skills were evaluated by Scuba Shack Instructors Monty Fitzpatrick and Gary Woods to ensure mastery. All passed with flying colors and earned certification as Open Water Divers.

Many of the graduates participated in the program through UConn’s Husky Xcursions program. Scuba Shack runs classes at the University in cooperation with the club every Fall and Spring Semester.
