No experience is necessary to scuba dive – our qualified PADI Dive Instructors will take you through a Discover Scuba Diving Brief highlighting all safety procedures and skills.

Once at the reef, you will practice your skills both on the boat and in the water before being taken on a 30-40 minute dive with your instructor to explore spectacular coral reefs and abundant marine life from a different perspective. Pricing is for 1 Dive, an additional two dives are possible at $50 per dive.

Our dive gear is high quality and includes dive computers and large tanks.
