Joshua Hotaling started diving in 2012 as part of therapy while stationed at Balboa Hospital. Joshua is now Ranger Road's lead instructor and enjoys teaching other veterans how to dive and hopefully get the same enjoyment out of it. Josh's favorite type of diving is cave diving and diving rebreathers. As veterans progress in their dive training, Joshua hopes to teach those who have the desire to progress into more technical and challenging scuba courses.
Course is open to all Veterans with or with out disabilities.
SCUBA DIVING HAS IT ALL, IT’S AN FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE THAT CAN IMPROVE YOUR EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH WHILE LEARNING NEW SKILLS, MAKING FRIENDS AND EXPANDING YOUR ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS.
Students will need to have their own Mask, Snorkel, booties, and fins for the course. Students will also need to purchase their student open water book kit. Ranger Road will provide the rest of the dive gear needed, if veteran has financial issues and cant get their own snorkel gear or books then RR will be able to step in and assist.
Location: course will be held in Loomis for first half of course while we do class and pool work then will go to Sugar Pine Reservoir for second half of course to do open water dives.
