Now is your opportunity to explore underwater just like a real SCUBA diver. This is for beginners only with no experience or certification in diving. Our beginners Discover course will show you what it is like. This is a great option to add to your YaYa Beach All Inclusive Beach Break or to do on its own - see order form.
Your meeting spot is just a short shuttle ride from your cruise pier - shuttle cost is about $2.00 USD per person. Your certified, PADI-trained dive instructor will be waiting for you at the dive shop. You will get checked in and then start with a short theory course to learn about the equipment and all the safety instructions.
Then your English-speaking guide will lead you to the shallow water from shore where you will practice with their guidance. Once you have passed all the skills, your dive master will get you on the boat and you'll head out for your 1 tank dive at the coral reef.
The reef is just a short distance from the shoreline, when the captain ties off the boat, your dive master will assist you with the gear and then follow you into the water. Your dive will be approximately 30-40 minutes and your maximum depth is 40 ft. Your dive master will be at your side the entire time. You will be greeted by colorful tropical fish and coral formations.
All of our SCUBA Diving equipment is of the highest quality and is regularly maintained by Sherwood-certified technicians; they replace the BCD's and regulators on a regular basis. Safety is the number 1 concern and the quality of their equipment ensures an unforgettable and safe day. All gear is included, including a shortie and wet suit if desired. There is also an option to purchase a picture package directly with your guide, so you can forget about taking pictures to capture the best moments of your diving and just focus on enjoying it! The approximate cost is $35 USD.
