Cozumel Discover Scuba Diving
Calling all beginners -- come SCUBA diving in warm and amazingly clear, shallow water. Cozumel, with its warm and exceptionally clear waters, offers an outstanding opportunity for newcomers to make their first dive a remarkable experience. This tour is specifically designed for the non-certified people who have never been diving and want to discover scuba.
A team of PADI instructors takes you step by step through an introductory course that will teach you how to breathe and swim freely underwater.
After approximately 45 minutes of underwater instruction and orientation, you will be ready to gear up in full scuba gear and enter the water directly from the beach.
The student-to-instructor ratio is 4 to 1, allowing the instructor to give you plenty of attention throughout the entire course and dive.
A few minutes are spent in waist-deep water getting used to the new feeling of breathing underwater. Then, you’re diving! The instructor is with you at all times, guiding you as you explore this new breathtaking world of fish and coral in a fantasy of shapes and colors. This area is home to schools of sergeant majors, pairing angelfish, and lobsters.
The dive reaches a maximum depth of 25 feet. The diving equipment is new and top-of-the-line. It is selected carefully by the instructor to ensure optimal fit and comfort.
Minimum age is 10 years. All equipment and transportation are provided as part of the tour. Wear your swimsuit; bring a towel. Waiver release form must be signed and medical conditions disclosed. You must fill out a medical questionnaire, which will be reviewed by the tour operator. Whether or not the operator allows you to participate will depend upon the information provided. To avoid possible disappointment, you may wish to review the medical requirements for diving in advance, so that you can ask your physician about clearing any medical issues in writing. Samples of typical medical questionnaires can be found on the websites of the major dive associations, such as PADI (Professional Association of Dive Instructors) and NAUI (National Association of Underwater Instructors).
