Swimming isn't the only way to enjoy the water. Brush up your kayaking skills and learn to SCUBA dive to splash up your water adventures!

Ohio has hundreds of creeks and rivers that create great kayaking opportunities. Some of those may be a little bit more extreme than you’d want to attempt without some advanced training. In the kayak roll class, experienced kayakers work on roll techniques.

Besides SCUBA diving on your vacation, there are some places you can practice your skills not too far from home. Take a class at the Countryside YMCA to get started on your SCUBA explorations. SCUBA classes are taught by certified dive instructors. Students learn how to SCUBA dive as they earn certification from the National Association of Underwater Instructors.
