Try Scuba

The Discover Scuba Diving is a 1 day beginner diving experience that gives you the opportunity to experience the underwater world without committing to a 2 or 3 day certification program.

You will have a short class in the morning to learn the basics of the equipment and prepare you for the underwater environment.

After the class, you will have a practice session in the pool or on the beach, to get used to the diving equipment and to breathe underwater.

Once you feel super comfortable on your first attempt, we will make a dive that can reach a maximum depth of 12 meters.

This is the right program for those who want to try scuba diving for the first time and for those who do not have enough time to do a full diving course.
