Sometimes you need to be comfortable on boats and jumping in. Naturally, we teach the entire progression from scratch. You’re eligible if you’ve taken the Beginning course and can float, unfloat and roll over peacefully. You also will have jumped into deep water in a pool at least 3 times. Ocean 101 and Deep Water Play are good precursors.
We begin by jumping into deep water in a pool. All the nonphysical components of overcoming fear and becoming fully in control are covered. Step by step your confidence increases. When this class follows Deep Water Play, students have spontaneously begun to tread water in this course. On Day 2, we spend the day on the boat. Jump into a peaceful cove and rest. Then, out to the Gulf to jump into the blue. Learn by feeling safe and having fun. Lunch is on the boat, on us.
