Get a taste of what scuba diving is all about on this half day adventure. Learn about the equipment, how to breathe underwater and other basic knowledge before taking the plunge to discover the magical underwater world with your dive instructor.
Have you always wanted to try scuba diving but you're not sure if you're ready become a certified diver? This half day experience is for you. You will meet at the store to be fitted out with scuba equipment and go over paperwork before being transported to the dive site. Once here your instructors will explain what's going to happen during your dive, the equipment you will be using, how to breathe underwater, appropriate underwater hand signals, some basic knowledge about scuba diving and the rules that need to be followed for your safety during the dive.
Soon enough it'll be time to get into the water. Your instructor will run through some important water skills and get you comfortable before descending down for your dive. The dive itself will last around 30-60 minutes and you will reach a maximum depth of five metres. Have a blast applying your new skills whilst discovering the beauty that lies beneath the waters surface.
