A 3 hour introduction to SCUBA diving, perfect for those wanting to experience the adventure of diving without committing to the Open Water Course
After watching a quick DVD on SCUBA diving and completing a review, our instructor will show you through the basics of using SCUBA equipment. Once completed, you will proceed to the shallow waters of the lagoon, just deep enough so you can still stand up, where you will sit with your instructor and experience those first few breaths underwater. After spending a few moments practicing you will be taught four important dive skills. Finally, you have your confidence you will enjoy your first dive with your instructor at a maximum depth of 12 metres.
You may upgrade and complete your Open Water Course. You will receive the cost of your Introductory Dive off your Open Water Course. Upon completion you will receive a Certificate of Recognition.
The minimum age to complete this experience is 10yrs.
