DISCOVER SCUBA DIVING
DISCOVER SCUBA DIVING EXPERIENCE (aka Entry Level Scuba, or The Resort Course)
Did you always want to try scuba diving but have no time to do a full course or live where it is too cold? No problem. In half a day you learn the basics of scuba diving and our Instructor will take you on a shallow dive in one of Culebra’s beautiful coral reefs. Our groups are always small which means that you get all of his or her attention helping you as well as pointing out all the cool creatures underwater.
No certification involved. Many ask if certain medical conditions disqualify you from diving? Only very few. So long as you are in good cardiovascular and respiratory health, and not on any drugs that might cause complications underwater, getting a physician’s approval to dive is generally easy. And, if you can honestly answer "No" to all of the questions on the Medical History form, you￼ won’t even have to get your doctor’s okay.
We do have an additional requirements to participate. Minimum age is twelve (12). YOU MUST BE ABLE TO SWIM (no exceptions)
in order to participate. Please take a look at our qualifying questions.

Cost: $155 pp, Includes all gear. Wear a bathing suit and bring a towel - we'll provide the rest!
