SNUBA is for those who want to take snorkeling up a notch. It is just like real SCUBA diving except no prior experience needed and it is as easy as snorkeling! Great for all ages.
The English speaking SNUBA shore excursion guide and transportation will meet you right outside the cruise ship terminal and get your adventure started. It is a short 35 minute ride to the dive shop on the western end of the island. At the dive center, the friendly staff will get you checked in and your fun begins. The morning departure begins at 09:30 AM and the afternoon departure at 01:30 PM.
The certified and PADI trained cruise excursion dive masters will go over all of the equipment, safety instructions and information before you hop aboard the dive boat. Learning how to SNUBA is really simple and guests of all ages can enjoy it (see restrictions). The only skills you need is basic swimming and comfort in the water.
The SNUBA diving shore excursion guides will assist you on with your gear - mask, snorkel, fins, weight belt, breathing regulator and harness. Your SCUBA tank that supplies your breathing air will float along on a raft on the surface. Your guide will monitor everything. They will take small groups into the water once at the dive site. You will start out on the surface and then slowly begin your way down. The maximum depth is only 15' for approximately 30 minutes. As you go down, you will need to clear your ears like when on a plane.
There is so much incredible marine life to see in a way you never can while snorkeling. The guide will be with you the entire time to assist you. Before you know it, your SNUBA adventure will finish but the fun does not stop. Snorkeling gear is provided and you can snorkel at your leisure. There is also bottled water provided and you may bring snacks if you wish.
When you SNUBA and Snorkel excursion is over, the boat will take you back to the dive center. The transportation leaves between 01:35-02:20 PM for the morning departure and between 05:35-06:20 PM for the afternoon departure. The transportation will return you to your Nassau cruise terminal.

Better than we thought...
We were pretty excited about this as we had snorkeled at another port. We wanted to "take it up a notch" and try the snuba diving. It was excellent and we would like to thank our guides for taking such good care of us. We would love to do this again some time and will definitely book with this company again. No more paying those outrageous cruise ship prices!

So happy we tried this.
My friends and I have always been snorkelers and have always been interested in scuba diving. We all booked this for our cruise last month. It was a fun thing to do as a group and as we expected.......we loved it! The bus picked us up right outside the cruise ship terminal on time and drove us to the dive shop at the other end of the island. When we got there, we felt right at ease. The staff explained exactly what we were going to do and helped us with the gear. The actual activity was not scary at all. The guide was right there with us in the water and the whole thing was like floating in a giant aquarium. The water was clear, warm and loaded with fish. Hands down the decision was made to do this again. Do this if you have the chance! It was safe, secure and totally fun from start to finish. We could not have picked a better thing to do and will be back!
