Learn all about scuba

Flying Fish Divers will be at the Great Bend Public Library to introduce guests to the world of scuba diving at 6 p.m. on Thursday, June 23.

Participants will have the opportunity to see scuba equipment and learn about trying scuba, how to get certified, and all the fabulous places divers can go under the sea.

“Just because we are in a landlocked state doesn’t mean you can’t learn about breathing underwater and the adventures that await in the deep blue oceans and seas,” sponsors said. “If you have ever been curious about scuba this free class is your perfect opportunity to learn about everything you will need to get started.”
