Then your instructor will familiarize you with the equipment and its’ use, as well as explain all the required procedures.

You will then get geared up in Safety Tested equipment – allowing you to explore the marine life of the colorful reef.

A short walk to the water line, in shallow water you will practice the basic exercises previously explained to you by your instructor so you can familiarize yourself with the equipment and the underwater environment.
