If you want to have fun diving and care about safety, then we are your scuba diving store. Our Story Since George Smith opened the doors in 1966, Smith Diving has led thousands of new divers under water to experience the thrill of diving. Originally George issued his own certification cards. NAUI, then just 5 years old was beginning to really define how to teach scuba and George signed on. Smith Diving is now one of the Oldest NAUI affiliates in the world (NAUI #F005). There are still some ``dinosaurs`` around who took their dive training in George`s own swimming pool (in his garage). Over the years the shop has seen quite a few changes, including 5 locations and 4 owners. George sold the shop to Greg Hegi who helped build on a already strong reputation for safety and service. Terry Lovaasen owned Smith Diving for 22 years and should get most of the credit for the shops reputation for ``the quality difference`` in safety and commitment to the diving public. In January, 2004 Terry sold the shop to Lee & Sheila Bailey-Seiler. Sheila is one of those who took their training in George`s garage. She also spent some time working in the store during the 80`s. Lee became certified as a requirement to marry into the Bailey family and has been diving since 1981. For the last 7 years Lee has worked full time at Smith Diving. Lee & Sheila are proud to take over the responsibility for the Smith reputation and will guard it jealously. The NAUI philosophy of ``Safety through education`` has always served Smith Diving well, and will continue to be the guiding force for all that we do. Scuba Diving and Snorkeling Classes You`ve come to the best place to explore the many possibilities available to you underwater. Whether you plan to scuba dive Minnesota or travel the world on scuba diving vacations, proper dive training for scuba certification is the first step of the adventure. This page guides you to our scuba diving instruction online information. Since 1960, NAUI has been training people just like you to be the best scuba divers in the world and Smith Diving has been certifying people in Minnesota to dive safely for over 40 years. From the basic scuba certification class, to specialty and leadership courses, the instructors at Smith Diving are trained to make your experience safe, meaningful and fun. The basic philosophy of Smith Diving is to certify safe divers by training them as completely possible, and by requiring of ourselves the highest level of standards in scuba diving instruction. All class sizes are kept small to insure adequate individual attention. All classes require a minimum of 3 students to run. A private scuba diving class can be arranged for an additional fee by calling the dive shop.
