Scuba Program at Marine Military Academy
Summer Scuba Program
The scuba certification classes offered during the 2012 MMA Summer Camp were a great success. There were three weekly classes with six students in each class. Scuba students were given academic instruction ranging from equipment use to laws of physics pertaining to diving. Skills and safety training were taught in the MMA pool before heading out to the Gulf of Mexico for the open water dive. The Scuba Program is taught my the Academy Assistant Dean, Joseph Palamara, a certified Scuba Diving Internation instructor.
Following all of their training in our pool, the students were taken to a working oil rig eleven miles off shore from South Padre Island where at approximately fifty feet they saw a fascinating and colorful array of hundreds of different types of fish. Among the fish the students observed were Angel fish, Trigger fish, Sheepshead, Kingfish and even several King Barracuda!
