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!

Scuba Diving
Culebra is an enchanting Spanish Virgin Island located approximately 17 miles east of mainland Puerto Rico and 12 miles west of St. Thomas. The island is around 15 square miles in size and home to approximately 3,000 local residents. Culebra boasts an intricate shoreline with cliffs, sandy coral shores and mangroves; with numerous cays surrounding it, and the Luis Peña Channel Natural Reserve. The island of Culebra is semi-arid with no fresh water streams and therefore, no surface run off. Because of this, the ocean visibility is among the clearest in the world, making for some of the best snorkeling and SCUBA diving. Culebra has many beautiful beaches, many of which are protected and therefore nearly waveless. Flamenco Beach, being the most popular, is also rated one of the world’s best. Paradise is found!

All our tours are guided by our Instructors. They are the ones spotting all the cool creatures. There are well over 50 dive sites to choose from and most are only 30 minutes from the dock with the furthest being 40 minutes away. We choose the dive sites in the morning according to the divers’ level of training as well as the weather conditions. Our groups are always small (6 passengers max) which means it is easy getting help if you need it.
