Robert J. Shourot, owner of Underwater Adventures, founded Coastal Diving Academy, New York's oldest professional diver training school, in 1960. Bob has trained thousands of divers in one of America's fastest growing water sports. If your interests are in spearfishing, exploring old shipwrecks and caves, treasure hunting, or underwater photography, Bob has the knowledge and experience to show you the safe way to have fun. Before you enter the field of diving, talk to him. He can't fail to help you!
From comprehensive theory classes through pool training sessions and finally to open water, you will find yourself in a new and beautiful world -- a world of vividly colored fish unafraid of your intrusion. They welcome the newcomer, and soon you are at home with them. Using your newfound skills as a diver, you feel safe and secure. Each
dive will be a memorable experience shared by a very special breed of men and women -- DIVERS.
