Try Scuba Diving
The Discover scuba diving course is great for those that want to get into scuba diving but are completely new as you will be in a group of no more than four people in sessions that will take a good portion of your day so be prepared for that. By the end of the day you will be diving off the boat and getting to explore with the instructor but for the first portion of the day you will do a classroom type setting for which you will learn the equipment and the basic safety. From that point you will spend quite some time in the pool with the equipment on so that you can practice first in the shallow end. The equipment is heavy so you will need to learn to swim and be able to handle yourself with everything on and then you will go to the deep end of the pool after you and the instructor are sure you are ready. Once all of that is done then it is time to hop on the boat and look at some marine life like you have never seen it before.
This is not something that children can do as they are not strong enough to support themselves and the equipment but for adults that are looking for an unforgettable experience this is something you shouldn’t miss out on. You buy tickets online, or over the phone beforehand in order to reserve your spot.
Here at Scuba-Fun, the Discover Scuba Diving course is a real dive experience during which you learn all the basics of scuba diving and then get to go out on the dive boat and do 2 real dives on our beautiful coral reefs. In the morning (generally around 8am), we begin with an introductory video (about 30 minutes) and then you do a knowledge review with your instructor. Next, we take you to our training pool, where you learn to breathe underwater, clear your mask and perform basic safety exercises. You will also get to practice swimming underwater when you are weightless. The pool session takes about 1 to 2 hours, but we give you enough time to feel comfortable and confident before we leave the pool. You then have a lunch break, and at around 1pm we take you out on the dive boat with the other divers to Pennekamp State Park, where you get to do 2 dives on 2 different locations on our reefs with your instructor. The length of the dives will depend on your air consumption rate, they are usually about 30 to 50 minutes each. You will see uncountable varieties of colorful fish and possibly nurse sharks, reef sharks, eagle rays, turtles, goliath groupers and barracudas. We have no dangerous animals on our reefs, so you can relax and enjoy!
We take a maximum of 4 divers per instructor to keep the groups small and safe.
