Scuba and Dive
Discover the thrill of scuba diving on this exciting half-day PADI course!
After transferring to the dive shop, your adventure begins with a comprehensive introductory lesson, during which your PADI-certified instructor will teach you the fundamentals of diving. Following the lesson, you will apply the concepts you have learned in a skills review session under the supervision of the instructor.
The instructor will then take you on a guided, shallow-water dive right from the beach. The duration and depth of the dive will depend on the skill set of the group, water conditions, and weather. The dive will not exceed 35 feet in depth and may include diving over a shipwreck. This introduction to scuba is the perfect way for first-timers to experience diving in a safe, supervised, and confidence-building environment.
Please Note: This tour is also suitable as a refresher dive for certified divers who have not been on a dive in the past two years. The tour price includes BCD, regulator, tank, mask, flippers, and weights. Any other equipment can be rented on the day of the tour (not included). No prior diving or snorkeling experience is required; however, competent swimming skills are essential. Weather and water conditions will dictate the exact sites visited on the day of the dive. The tour duration will depend on the class's ability to understand the concepts of diving, practice, and time and depth of the dive. Most dives range from 30 to 40 minutes.
