During the boat trip to the dive site, you can try the scuba gear with your instructor, and get used to breathing from a scuba tank - you'll be surprised at how easy it is!
Once at the dive site, you'll learn some basic diving skills in shallow water with your instructor, and after this, you'll continue diving and exploring the same coral reefs as certified divers.

You'll have a dive instructor with you at all times and can dive to a maximum depth of 12m, around 39 feet.
After a delicious lunch on the boat and some time for snorkeling, we'll move the boat to a different dive site for the second dive with your instructor.
