Introduction To Scuba Diving
Have you ever dreamed of floating weightless amongst an array of rainbow fish and coral formations? Grab your chance at this introductory diving course in the bays of Malta!
Upon arrival, all participants must fill out a medical questionnaire (a copy of it can be seen on PADI.com). You will then have a short class on the basics of scuba before donning your included equipment and trying your new skills in a swimming pool with your instructor.
Once the instructor and you are sure you are ready, you will take a shallow one tank dive from the beach. The dive time is approximately 40 minutes, and the maximum depth is approximately 20 feet.
Back on dry land you will have a new perspective on the underwater world. From here you will drive back to the cruise pier, which is approximately 20 minutes away.
