Scuba diving is not only about diving and observing the amazing environment that exists under the waters. This sport can be transformed into a successful career by those who are truly passionate about it. At the moment, scuba diving has four main areas of interest: recreation purposes, commercial purposes, scientifically research and military activity as well. The most frequent reason why people go for scuba diving is because they want to relax in a special way, by having contact with a less known world

Everywhere We Go, We Learn , We Teach


Education is the key to knowledge. Knowledge is the opportunity . Every young  person that joins TAP is made aware that they must maintain at least a minimum 2.5  GPA . Our statistics show that those that  remain active for one years exceed the minimum by .5 to maximum of 3.92.

Each grading period, performance is visually checked and logged to chart individual and  group progress.  With the help of various agencies, volunteer groups and staff, tutoring and other special needs are identified and met .

A Goal To Reach|Non swimmer to lifeguard

Many of our members joining TAP , never learned to swim. Though hard work, desire and motivation, our non-swimmer have in some cases become Life Guards within a year’s time.

Underneath that cover of intellectual pursuit is the true self that acts as a guide throughout life.  "It nudges us when needed, and prods us to become our best" and to "strive to become a better person."  It allows us latitude to become all that we dream of.  It brings life to what could be a lifeless soul, and gives purpose and design to our every move.
