You learn the basic safety guidelines and skills needed to dive under the direct supervision of a dive professional.

We will tell you everything you need to know to make your first introduction dive under direct supervision of a dive professional. Also we will explain the exercises that you will need to perform in the shallow. Then, when we’re all ready we’ll jump in our scuba truck and take you to the dive site.
First we get to practice in the shallow and when everything goes well we go out and hit the depths of the Caribbean sea. Or at least not deeper than 12 meters/45 feet.
The introduction double dive takes about 5 hrs and credits towards the Open Water certificate. So if you liked your dive and your instructor, you’re ready to continue another two days of amazing diving to become Open Water certified!
