Full description
Try out scuba diving on this full-day activity, perfect for those short on time. Meet your group at 9:00 AM and get fitted for the diving equipment. Your instructor will run through a safety briefing and you'll complete a short quiz to make sure you have understood everything.   At 11:00 AM you'll head to the pier and board a custom-made dive boat with all the facilities required for you to have an enjoyable and relaxed day. Your instructor will set up the kit as you relax on the sun deck. When you reach the calm bay start off in shallow water to build your confidence and learn some basic diving skills.   Then follow your instructor to a maximum depth of 12 meters, while taking in the awe-inspiring sights of your first underwater diving experience. Afterwards, relax on the boat or enjoy the option to jump in again for a second dive. At the end of your diving experience, return to the dive center at around 4:00 PM.

Did it with my husband, the introduction was great. Dropping off at the pier was very chaotic, you didn't really know what was going to happen next. You saw a lot while diving, but in my opinion something very much for beginners. I had already done the Open Water Diver course and the dives were very challenging. Nevertheless, all in all we really liked it

Super informative and the staff are professional

This truly professional establishment answers all of our questions and shows us everything we need to know about basic diving and makes everything safe. I highly recommend ! In addition we can choose the instructor's language (English, French, Spanish) which makes us comfortable and helps us to understand the instructions.
