St Lucia PADI Discover Scuba Diving
February 02, 2020
I have wanted to try Scuba for a long time. Captain Andrew was amazing. I felt 100 percent safe and now would like to do a full course before we return to the islands! The entire crew was very concerned for all guests comfort and safety.

I am a certified diver but it was my husband’s first time so we went with there Discover Scuba experience. The boat staff/dive instructors were all friendly, knowledgeable and kept things engaging. They made sure to go at each diver’s pace and that everyone was comfortable. Even as a previously certified diver I enjoyed the lesson and the dives (we paid extra on the boat for a second dive as this package only includes one). This was a perfect choice if you don’t want to spend your whole cruise going through the full PADI certification. The intro got my husband hooked and now we will complete the full cert at home before our next vacation.

I am a certified scuba diver, but I'm now 65, and I haven't scuba dived in 35 years. I wanted to scuba dive again, in a safe way, and was delighted to find this opportunity. Technically, it's meant for non-certified scuba divers, but it was perfect for me. It pairs you one-on-one with a diving instructor who prepares you with a written lesson, a lecture, and quiz before you get in the water. Once that's completed, the instructor gets you suited-up and once in the water, gives you some basic skills instruction, and tests you on your abilities. The instructor then accompanies you on an actual scuba dive. At my request, we held hands the whole time. I felt completely safe and secure, and had a beautiful and wonderful dive. I would do it again in a heartbeat! I think this would be a difficult experience for someone not familiar with snorkeling and using a face mask. My instructor was Ponti Francis; he was amazing!! This was an experience I will never forget!

First Scuba experience ever
November 06, 2012
It was not quite as thrilling as I had expected, but being able to breath underwater and enjoy such beauty is unforgettable. I even have a better understanding of my lungs and sinuses from the way the pressure affected me. The seawater made a muscle I pulled the week before feel 99% better. I want to get PADI certified and do it again, hopefully. I spent so much time in the water by the time I got back on the boat most of our group had already eaten. The instructor could have had a little more humor, but I guess making sure people don't drown themselves is a big responsibility and makes one come off as very serious. I am an instructor of a somewhat hazardous job for the company that I work for and would have liked to give the instructor some tips, but too short of a time. Excellent experience, moderate danger level if done incorrectly, and rejuvenating.
