Discover Scuba Diving

If you want to discover scuba diving but are not quite ready for a certification course – or you might have limited time on the island – Try Scuba Diving is perfect for you. It will let you experience scuba diving on real dive sites in just half a day.

​No prior dive experience or swim skills are required to participate in Try Scuba Diving. Our Instructors will give you the basic knowledge on equipment, the aquatic environment and safety standards.

​Here we will spend time building confidence in very shallow water before moving into deeper water to explore the corals and marine life under the direct control of our instructor. After about an hour in the water we will get back to the boat and head to another dive site where you will have the choice to do a second dive or simply laze around soaking up the sun and go for a refreshing swim.



  • The “Basic Diver” is not a dive certification.
  • Minimum 10 years of age
  • Those with major medical conditions require prior written approval from a physician.
  • For safety reasons, no photo or video equipment may be brought with you during Try dives.
