About RAID

Scuba Diving is rapidly becoming one of the most popular sporting activities. It is an exciting, dynamic and fun recreation, and a rare activity that delivers adrenaline and intensity, as well as serenity and peace. The Level 1 Course opens up a unique world of discovery and adventure – the thrill of breathing underwater, the freedom of weightlessness and the exhilaration of discovering the magnificence of the ocean.

RAID’s highly qualified and experienced instructors have a commitment to excellence, and train people within each person’s limitations, developing and achieving confidence in their own abilities. The underwater world is a foreign realm. It is not a hostile environment, just a different one and humans are welcome there, but only as visitors, and only as long as we obey the rules.

Fatalities or even serious injuries are extremely rare. Diving is actually one of the safer, adventurous leisure activities.

If you’re terrified of marine creatures, don’t be. Learn about them and dispel your fears. Years of misinformation on television and the movies have given many people an unwarranted fear of our oceans’ inhabitants. The timid octopus, gentle orca, and giant squid among others, have all been portrayed as terrors of the deep! The reality is that none of them are a threat to humans. Even the shark, the most dreaded of all sea predators, is not quite the terror Hollywood would have us believe. The fact is that your chances are far greater of dying from bee stings than from being attacked by a shark. Most shark attacks happen by mistake and are more often on swimmers and surfers than divers. The shark mistakes the surfer or swimmer for a seal or injured fish and oops, it bites. Although that bite hurts, (fortunately) we don’t taste good to sharks. When you’re down in the water with them, you’re usually perceived as a neighbor, not dinner.

There are marine creatures that can be hazardous to your health. They are usually small, timid creatures who will gladly leave you alone as long as you return the courtesy. Sometimes, just being able to identify them is helpful.

Tropical seas are wonderful, yet cold water divers from the New England coast to British Columbia, Canada, claim that they have some of the most exciting diving in the world. Warm or cold water, fresh or salt water, domestic or foreign; every location features its own attractions.

Most divers happily observe one simple rule – never dive alone. Diving is a group activity. Dive clubs and groups of friends travel together, stay at resorts, charter boats, and party together. While diving teaches self reliance, it produces a unique camaraderie, a special pleasure at having shared an emotionally and intellectually powerful experience.

Many divers enjoy the social activities that go with diving as much as they enjoy the diving itself. Another recent trend diving educators have noticed that when one member of a family learns to dive, the entire family will often quickly follow, in recognition that a SCUBA trip can be an ideal family vacation.
