Discover Scuba Diving

A course designed to bring underwater even the most inexperienced, it is usually the hook for a magical journey that will last a lifetime.

With minimal theory, a good practice session in a calm freshwater pool and the constant assistance, tutoring and guidance of a professional PADI Instructor you will learn the basics of the sport, how to be safe while having an amazing experience….until you’re ready to take the plunge!

Yes, you’ll get to dive. Really. Down there! With the fish! Down to max 12 meters/40 feet! In the beautiful scenario of Caño Island, where sharks, rays, turtles, pretty fish and schooling marvels abound!

You’ll also get to enjoy a beautiful ride in the middle of the mangrove forest, just like that.


As always, our training and tutoring includes a comprehensive discussion on marine conservation and environmental awareness, because we want everyone to contribute and respect rather than exploit and predate.


So join in!


And….sshh...maybe you’ll get to see some whales and dolphins on the way!
