Meet your English-speaking guide at your Dominica cruise pier and take a short 15-minute drive in your air-conditioned transportation. The ride will take you through the picturesque village of Pointe Michel to the dive center.
On arrival, you will meet your professional PADI Dive Instructor. After getting checked in and forms filled out, you will have an orientation about the use of the dive gear, the diving techniques and all the safety rules you must follow to fully enjoy of this incredible water sport. Your dive master will pass out your dive gear and assist you on with putting it on.
Once you are comfortable equipped, you will have a short introduction on the shore about what you are likely to see and experience throughout the excursion. Your diving instructor will lead you into shallow waters for you to become more accustomed to your equipment and the activity before leading you on an open water dive. No need to worry, your dive master will be by your side the entire dive.
The dive will take you to a maximum deep of only 15 ft. But even at that shallow depth, there is abundant reef life including colorful sponges, lobster, parrot fish and resident Hawksbill turtles. You will see where underwater geothermal springs release gases in the form of thousands of bubbles giving you the feeling of diving in an infinite glass of champagne while you dive.
The dive master will lead you back to the shore after approximately 30-35 minutes. After your activity, enjoy the comfort and convenience of the dive center with showers, changing rooms, refreshments, a gift store and a coffee shop with sun deck overlooking the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Even though you will not receive any type of diving certification after this excursion, it will give you a good idea what SCUBA diving is about.
Once you are ready, board your transportation to take you back to your Dominica cruise pier.
