What is Scuba?

Scuba diving is a mode of underwater diving in which the scuba diver uses a self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (SCUBA) which is completely independent of surface supply, to breathe underwater. Unlike other modes of diving, which rely either on breath-hold or on breathing supplied under pressure from the surface, scuba divers carry their own source of breathing gas, usually compressed air, allowing them greater freedom of movement than with an air line or diver’s umbilical and longer underwater endurance than breath-hold.


Okay scuba diving in Nebraska, yes believe it! My wife and I finally decided to get certified in diving this year. We knew we will have opportunities to dive on trips abroad but we did not realize how much we could dive right here in the Midwest!

As far as lessons and our skills test, Dan and Marc could not have made it easier for Michelle and I to make it happen! From everything to making sure we had the proper fitting gear to ensure we had our skills down and comfortable in the deep end of the pool. These guys are great!

I have been in the shop several times, everyone there is great, friendly and helpful! We are looking forward to being apart of this family and making a few trips with the folks at AquaTrec!

You are never too old to get started or never too young, you just have to make it happen and this team will make sure you have fun and you are safe!


Dan is an awesome instructor! He is great with people and sharing his knowledge and passion for scuba. I enjoyed getting my feet wet with this intro class and would love to continue on. I have had several inquiries from others regarding this intro to scuba as well.


I recently certified in Bonaire. Marc and everyone there made it very simple I was really scared but I'm ready to do it again after I got past my fear they do such a great job of making you very comfortable.


A bit late but want to say my 12 (now 13) year old and I LOVE this place. Dan taught the pool sessions for her (and has bonded to him) and l got my refresher here. Jon was so patient with me on my second refresher class. I should have taken a new class initially rather than a refresher since my initial certification was almost 30 years ago. He got me to where I needed to be. Our dive time in St Thomas on vacation was as great as I hoped it would be. We are going back for our advanced open water diver soon in St Thomas since they have the winter weather for it. Nail biting about the night dive begins!
