What is ZUBA Diving: Free diving + Scuba Diving. It feels like free diving (snorkeling) but the air supplied from the surface feeds the regulators, a buoyancy compensator (BCD), and even a drysuit (if needed). Zuba diving has all the safety of Scuba Diving without the heavy tank on your back. You can have the best of both worlds - Scuba diving and Snorkeling. Become a certified ZUBA Diver TODAY!
ZUBA Diving is "surface supplied air" diving. The diver has the advantage of descending below the surface and experiencing the wonders of the underwater world, without the heavy tank on their back or the restrictions of snorkeling (having to remain on the surface).
ZUBA is freedom underwater!!!
ZUBA Diving offers a fun and exciting way to experience the underwater world. We offer a Supervised Open Water Diver program for ages 10 and up and a Pool/Confined Water program for ages 7 and up to safely allow divers to experience the underwater without the risk of getting lost (separation), decompression illness, and without the weight of regular scuba tanks. We also have a Full Open Water Certification for adults and a Junior Open Water Certification for ages 10 and up that would like to ZUBA Dive with the supervision of an instructor.
ZUBA Diving feels like free diving (snorkeling), it includes all the safety aspects of scuba diving when in the open water. You are supplied with air from the surface to breathe, you wear a buoyancy system (BCD) that is powered by the surface supply air and will allow you to attain neutral buoyancy and to float on the surface when needed, you are capable of wearing an exposure suit, wetsuit or dry suit, that is appropriate for the environment and you will need a weight belt to sink your exposure suit. Most importantly the ZUBA system includes a primary and secondary regulator to ensure that you have a redundant air source and can provide assistance to an out of air diver, similar to that of traditional scuba. It combines the best of both worlds, Scuba & Snorkeling.
The Bonus: All the skills, techniques, safety procedures, and equipment are consistent, interchangeable, and fully upgrade-able to full recreational SCUBA diving and even cave/wreck/technical diving.
In UTD, our primary method of tracking gas is by relating time and pressure. In other words how long we have being underwater, we can have a general idea of how much gas we used, We can double check…Continue
ZUBA (Z-Floating Underwater Breathing Apparatus)
I have been lucky to try the ZUBA last weekend at La Jolla Cove.
I am a longtime & regular diver, so I was very curious and excited to try the ZUBA. First, it's kinda fun to walk and swim with that orange bag and a diving flag !!
Then it's the time to go underwater. I did not have my dive computer with me so that was the strange part. However, it feels kinda cool to dive until 20 feets without carrying that big tanks and these tons of weight !
I think it's a fun…
I wanted to share with you my thoughts and impressions from teaching the ZUBA Jr. Open Water program.

I tried ZUBA and had a blast! Im still new to scuba, but it felt the same i just didn't have the tank on my back and absolutely love it!! My mom isn't a certified scuba diver but loves to snorkel. We were supposed to get certified together, she doesn't like all the gear and carrying the tanks so she could never get the hang of it enough to get her open water cert, she would love this!!!! I told her how fun and easy it was. She won't have a problem at all with her buoyancy. I can finally go…Continue
