Full description

Your passion for diving starts today with our'Discover Scuba Diving' course!

This experience, which combines aconfined water dive and anopen water dive, is a recognised basis for the PADIScuba Diver course and thePADI Open Water Diver course.

A 4-hour activity, during which a scuba diving instructor will provide you with all the useful teaching you need to start learning this fascinating aquatic discipline!

What we will do

The appointment is 10 minutes before 09:30 at the meeting point onGiglio Island (GR). We will be welcomed by thediving instructor who will guide us on this first dive!

The experience will begin on site, with the viewing of a 30-minute themed video; this will be followed by a first theoretical lesson on diving and a second theoretical lesson on the exercises to be practised in the water in preparation for the dive.

We will then put on our equipment and get into an inflatable boat to head to a nearby "natural pool" where our 30-minute confined water dive will take place: we will position ourselves on our knees on the seabed, at a maximum depth of 2 metres, and put into practice the exercises we have just learnt. We will perform the exercises one at a time under the supervision of the instructor, who will give us corrections and advice.

And here we are ready to venture out into the open sea, for our 30-minute open water dive : we will dive autonomously to a maximum depth of 12 metres, always under the supervision of the instructor , who will be close by and ready to give us support.

We will then return to the meeting point. The activity will last 4 hours; the total experience will last 5 hours.
