We are cancelling our Explorers club for today Sunday the 20th, keep posted for new dates!
Connecticut Scuba Academy is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to providing educational services for, Scientific, Public Safety, and Adaptive scuba diving.
We have been lucky enough to partner with the Sound School in New Haven CT http://sound.school/ to develop Scientific dive programs for High schools and University's, this is the only program of its kind in Connecticut and one of only a few in the United states. Our program is designed to introduce students to the underwater environment in their freshman year and have them performing scientific dives within NOAA dive standards by the time they graduate.
The Academy is also partnered with The Institute of Professional Practice https://www.ippi.org/, a private, non-profit human services and educational organization based in Vermont, IPPI specializes in providing treatment and support to people with developmental and psychiatric disabilities throughout New England and Maryland. The Academy is proud to be working with IPPI's Connecticut department on developing and provide Adaptive aquatic programs for the people they serve.
Another mission of the Academy is to work with multiple Public Safety Dive teams in. NJ, NY, CT, MA, RI and VT to provide the latest unifying PSD training available, allowing teams to cooperate across state lines seamlessly.
We also offer recreational scuba certification programs for other organizations and non profits like the Scouts and YMCA's. We believe anyone and everyone can experience the adventure and exploration of diving. Financial, physical, or intellectual impairments shouldn't keep a child or adult from living a full and adventurous life. Therefore, we offer special scuba lessons and pricing to meet the needs of any individual or group. https://www.tdisdi.com/erdi/

Connecticut Scuba Academy has been lucky enough to partner with this unique High school. The Sound School prepares students for college, careers, and life in a maritime focused environment.
Coupled with rigorous academics and a dedicated faculty, we have become Connecticut’s premier aquaculture/agriculture science and technology education center (ASTE).
“Our kids perform professional tasks, present at professional conferences, and are often teaching others how to DO when they go off to college and work. Our students are using equipment often not touched until junior/senior year of college. Plus, how many high school kids get to build an ROV (remotely operated vehicle), a boat, or operate a 40 ton USCG certified vessel?”.
New England Dive center has been a stead fast supporter of the Academy since our conception, not just financially and with equipment but they have been very supportive of all our ventures.

We here at Squalusmarine.com believe that exploration is in everyone's DNA! So, We put our money where our mouth is! Squalus Marine Divers has been filming all of our dives for 4 years. We film in a rustic first-person style to give the viewer the gritty feel of actually being there! (Not all of our dives are pretty!)
The videos allow us to take divers, and non divers along for the ride. We hope to expose people to, not only the joys and excitement of Scuba Diving, but also to various locations off the beaten path!
The Meriden YMCA is a pivotal part of our programs and one of the locations we use for a majority of our training.
In 2019 we are pleased to be joining the Meriden Y to offer a two week summer scuba camp for kids. This is very exciting for us and we hope its just the beginning of many great events to come.
