Interested in diving while on vacation on Grand Bahama Island? Lack the scuba diving experience necessary? Looking for a quick, safe and fun introduction to the exhilarating wonders below the surface of the Caribbean? The Discover Scuba Course is the ideal introduction to scuba diving for novices. The entire family can participate together while investigating the underwater panorama off the shores of the Bahamas. The easy-to-use scuba gear is a user-friendly equipment package that makes visiting the underwater world an uncomplicated and enjoyable experience.
You can bypass the extensive certification courses in favor of a more streamlined process designed to place divers where they wish to be: under the surface of the Caribbean viewing the spectacular undersea vistas of a shallow reef coral garden. After a brief classroom orientation, head to the pool in order to become acquainted with your gear while receiving instruction from your knowledgeable divemaster and underwater tour guide. Enjoy playing underwater games in our spacious Olympic-size 17-foot deep swimming pool. Ham it up and wave to your friends and family through the below-surface observation window. They can stay dry while easily recording your first diving experience with photographs or video.
After fun in the pool, it's time to venture out to dive in the open sea. Hop on one of our custom dive boats with our professional crew to visit one of the splendid reefs in the local waters. You'll be awe-struck by the incredible textures of a coral garden teeming with a multitude of aquatic species.
This program provides you the opportunity to dive to a maximum of 40 feet and investigate the underwater panorama under the close supervision of our experienced staff.
