Learn to SCUBA Dive with the Hart House Underwater Club
Jan. 13th, 2015

Since 1962 the HHUC has offered high quality Scuba diver training courses featuring twelve weeks of classroom and pool instruction leading to Scuba certification with the National Association of Underwater Instructors (NAUI). The club supports a team of professionally qualified NAUI instructors (many of whom are faculty, staff and alumni of University of Toronto). Our instructors are also club members and volunteers, who teach for love of the sport, rather than for financial gain, and because they believe in keeping the sport of diving safe for all participants. The club provides many diving opportunities with an extensive summer dive schedule, various trips and a variety of Scuba related and social activities!

Our next Scuba Diver Course starts on Tuesday Sept. 15th, 2015 with registration opening at the end of August. To receive notice of registration join our HHUC listserv.
