Learn to Scuba Dive

Or perhaps a lifetime of experiences? The choice is yours!

As you are reading this it is likely that you have never tried scuba diving before and are curious about what is involved and what it's like to breath underwater. Perhaps you would love to see some amazing marine life or to experience the closest thing to being an astronaut. Perhaps you want to tick it off your bucket list or try it before you invest in a full open water scuba diver certification course. Maybe you've tried it before and had so much fun you just want another go; either way you're in the right place! We usually run the "try dives" in the afternoons at the dive centre at 14:30 and they last about 2-2 ? hours. Here's what we get up to in the time: Firstly, we complete the paperwork, more on this a bit later, followed by a small presentation in which we tell you: a bit about pressure and its effects on the body and how we deal it e.g. equalizing our ears it is just like being in a plane a bit about the equipment you will be wearing so you know how it works a few basic scuba skills so that you are comfortable in the water - e.g. how to breathe through and clear the regulator (the bit you put in your mouth) so you don't get a mouthful of sea water! Try Scuba TodayYes, we do the try dives in the sea - not a pool - so you get to experience some of the wonderful marine life here in Lanzarote too. We go in from the shore at our house reef, an enclosed bay and therefore protected and very suitable for try dives. Secondly, we fit you out in all the equipment - now you start to look and feel like a scuba diver! Finally, we get you into the water. Slowly, taking our time, relaxing as much as possible. We run over the skills with you and then we get you to take your first breaths under water - in water shallow enough that you can stand up in it. Then we get you under the water and comfortable and before you know it you'll be seeing an array of different fish and marine life! We conduct all our try dives in the Atlantic Ocean with all the potential wonders of the ocean to behold right in front you; far more to experience and more fun than jumping into a swimming pool. For those that find that potentially daunting, fear not as you will be with a diving professional at all times, we go in from the shore and the group sizes are kept small so that it is easy to help you and have fun.
