Paula and I became interested in Scuba Diving back in 2000. We took a PADI Discover Scuba class through Caribbean Divers in Fort Wayne. We had one stumbling block, Paula could not swim. She had water skied for many years, but she always did that wearing a life jacket. Paula had taken swim lessons twice before and failed. She is very goal oriented and she now had a specific goal - scuba diving. Paula took lessons at the Auburn YMCA. She was very determined to pass the swim class. She passed with flying colors. Still one stumbling block, she had to be able to swim a distance. We both started swimming laps. We both passed our swimming tests that first day of scuba lessons.
