First Time Scuba Adventure
The many sites around the island of Tahiti are perfect for beginning divers. Highlights include clear, shallow waters; sunken vessels; walls of bright coral; and schools of smaller species. Although there are fewer larger species here, Tahiti offers excellent variety and density of dive sites.
You will be taken to meet your dive instructors and after briefing instructions on equipment and what to expect you will be ready for your first dive in shallow water.
The lagoon area you will first dive in is as shallow as 20 to 30 feet and is alive with leopard rays, triggerfish and beautiful coral all floating above wonderful white sand.
Continue to explore among the "wrecks" and swim alongside a myriad of colorful fish. The wrecks compromise a large cargo ship and a Catalina flying boat. Also see the "aquarium", a great sandy site 12 meters deep where you can find corals and many tropical fish. Here is where there are two boats and a small plane that find their final resting place under water. This first-time dive is very personal with your instructor that ensures their attention to you and not an over-crowded dive experience.
Your approximate dive time under water is 45 minutes and is fun for all ages from 12 to 75 years old.

We booked a first-time scuba dive for beginners, and our guide, Alex, did a wonderful job for us. He was very kind and patient, and he knew exactly how to put us at ease using the equipment underwater and completing our first dive. He and the rest of the crew on board our boat all made the trip fun and memorable. Special kudos to our guide and instructor, Alex.

WE had not had a regulator on for years but they made the dive super easy with a ratio of 4 dive master to 6 guests. The dive featured 3 wrecks - a plane and 2 hulls so it was visually interesting. I had forgotten how much fun diving was. The trip was well organized and perfectly executed. Thank you so much.

I really loved this excursion. I was very nervous about my first dive. These guys were very patient. Everyone is very professional and you will feel at ease after their tutorial. The instructor stayed with me and continually ask if I were doing ok. Thanks Guys and Gals

The experience of the first time scuba diving was not from this world. The instructors were so nice and understanding. I went on this trip with the attitude that I might not dive there if I would be too scared. Our instructors make the whole experience looks like a piece of cake. We have wonderful memories and a lot of pictures and video which they documented our underwater experience for us.Excellent, Excellent, and again Excellent.Thank you very much.
