Where to learn to scuba dive on Long Island
In the 1970s, poor eyesight prevented Stephen Scigliano from becoming an astronaut. So he decided if he couldn't go up, then he would go down. Scigliano took up scuba diving.
"The world underwater is gorgeous," says Scigliano, who owns Swim and Scuba, a Rockville Centre dive shop and swim school. Scuba diving "is very relaxing. There are no phones, no beepers and nobody yelling at you."
