What To Expect
Watch a short instructional video and get a safety briefing from your certified scuba instructor. Although this diving experience is not a scuba certification course, you can get credit toward PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver certification if you choose to continue diving.
Board a well-equipped boat to head out toward the reef. When you reach the dive site, get help with your equipment and slip into the calm sea at your own pace. Get used to what it feels like to breathe underwater and how to communicate with fellow divers. Follow your guide to explore the dive site, looking for eels, sea turtles, stingrays and schools of tropical fish darting among the colorful corals and sea sponges.
At this shallow wreck site off shore in Divi Little Bay, dive to a depth of 30 feet (9 meters). Explore a deliberately sunken submarine as well as a more recent helicopter. Departing from Simpson Bay Resort, enjoy coastal sightseeing as you cruise to an offshore reef site.
