Discover Scuba Diving
Ever since you can remember you’ve wanted to try scuba diving, right?
Maybe you watched a cool movie on television showing scuba divers playing with dolphins or one of your friends just returned from a dive trip to the “Islands” or maybe you’ve always dreamed of diving on a WWII wreck. Whatever your reason, we’ve got just what you need to Discover what it’s like to Scuba Dive.
Its lots of fun, easy to do and in no time at all you’ll be blowing bubbles underwater with a 400-pound Queensland Grouper, rays, lazy Nurse Sharks and a whole bunch of their cool fish friends.
So if you want to find out but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, our Discover Scuba Diving experience will let you try scuba to see if you like it.
Here’s What You’ll Learn
First of all, you’ll quickly discover just how easy it is to breathe underwater. Your instructor will describe and review some of the basic safety guidelines and skills needed to safely dive underwater. Then you’ll head underwater and experience one of the most unique activities you could ever imagine.
What diving equipment will you use?
We will provide the use of all the basic scuba gear including a mask, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device, dive gauges, tank and exposure suit.
