Divers announce ‘Rocks, Rips and Reefs’ underwater instruction schedule

The San Diego Council of Divers has announced the 2013 schedule for its Rocks, Rips and Reefs in-water education and site-orientation program for divers and snorkelers.

Participants are first briefed on the interaction of surf, swell and tides, and then enter the water to tour popular dive sites with experienced instructors. Former lifeguards provide all instruction. The program is held on Saturdays. Check-in begins at 8 a.m., mandatory briefing starts at 8:15 a.m. and participants enter the water 8:30 a.m.

Instruction is free and open to the public, though donations are accepted and used to keep this program operating. SCUBA Certification is not required, but swimming experience is recommended. Participants must sign a liability waiver as part of registration. Participants aged 17 or younger must have the waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian to participate.
