    Well just came back from vacation in Puerto Rico. There I did a discover scuba experience. It was fantastic!! I have decided that I want to become certified and also get my fiancé certified so we can scuba on the honeymoon.

    Where are good places locally that I can get my certification?

    By far my favorite is Denver Divers in Cherry Creek North. Awesome staff. I was certified there about 15 years ago and my daughter just received her cert there in July. Excellent shop and I live in the Ranch so it was a haul for me but worth it for the few times you have to go there to get it done. Did the open water at Blue Hole in NM.

    I got my Rescue diver through A1 Scuba. They are located off of Santa Fe and Alameda. They are a PADI shop and they were very helpful with great instructors. They also have a shop full of gear and their own indoor pool on premise. Getting certified in Colorado isn't super fun though. Once you go outside of the pool area, the water is very cold and murky. If the do an outside dive in New Mexico at the Blue Hole, go there instead of Chattfield Reservoir.

    Unerwater Phantaseas off of Apapahoe 6860 S Clinton Ct. I was certified in October and they let me do my dives when we went to Roatan.

    Coral key scuba & travel in arvada did a lot of training at a pool I used to work for. Not sure what their rates are and I dont think a 14ft deep end of an olympic pool counts as open water, but you can get everything else knocked out there.

    I forgot to mention that the training pool is saltwater.
