    I hate to say it, but I don't think there are that many folks around with 11 year old daughters who are thinking about diving. I do know a few who fit the category, but without knowledge of where in the US you are, I can't say if any are in your proximity. As for videos, I would recommend a Youtube search with scuba gear as a target and you should get a few good results. To be honest, the gera isn't that difficult: Mask, Snorkel, Fins, Tank, BCD, wetsuit or dry suit and regulator.

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)

    I would suggest involving a real instructor at this point.

    Like noob said, sign up to do a discover scuba class, the cost isn't much and they will usually take the cost of the class off the open water course if you decide to continue on. They will go over the equipment and basic instruction in a pool.

    You can order the entire scuba class materials for a Naui course, and this will come with CD, DVD and book with lots of pictures and explanations. It would give you everything you are looking for and more!
