Playing around in the pool with a torpedo.The UMaine School of Marine Sciences hosts a Basic Scuba certification course each year during the Spring term.  The course is intended for marine science students who wish to truly immerse themselves in their studies.  Academic and pool sessions are taught on-campus in Orono; Open Water Dives are conducted during a week-long stay at the Darling Marine Center in late May/early June.  This is a non-credit bearing (no tuition) course; however, certain course fees apply.
