Introductory Dives – For Non-Certified Divers (and certified diver friends/relatives)
First-time (non-certified) divers will experience the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program, which covers the fundamental rules and guidelines of safe scuba diving. This experience can also be applied toward your PADI Open Water Certification.
After a detailed, hands-on orientation, divers will enter shallow water and practice four basic scuba-related skills. These skills are designed to build confidence and to show you just how easy scuba diving really is.
After satisfactorily completing the skills portion of your lesson, you are qualified to dive to a maximum depth of 40 feet under the direct supervision of our PADI instructors.
The entire process for a two-tank introductory dive experience from arrival to departure takes approximately 3.5-4 hours. Should you choose to only do a one-tank dive, then the approximate time will be 2.5-3 hours from arrival to departure.
