Discover Scuba Diving

Participating in a “try-dive” or what we call a Discover Scuba Diving Experience is a perfect way to experience the amazing feeling of scuba diving! During one single day, you will experience taking your first breaths under water, the sensation of being weightless and enjoying the underwater world close up. You dive together with a divemaster or instructor, in a calm and relaxed atmosphere. You'll be introduced to scuba diving with a little bit of theory, practicing a few skills in shallow water - and then you go fun diving! This is a wonderful experience and you don't have to be older than ten years to attend!

For example, if you dive to15 meters /50 feet on air, your no decompression limit is 80 minutes. But, diving on EANx 36 Nitrox gets you 220 minutes of no decompression time - an increase of 140 minutes!
