Are you looking for that fun family activity that will have lasting memories? The Try Diving program is just that; an activity that brings the family together and is available for all persons from the age of 10 and up. Try Diving also known as Discover Scuba Diving is a PADI program that allows anyone to get into the ocean and explore the underwater world in only a few short hours.
Playa Del Carmen is an easy and quick flight from most points in the U.S. and Canada. The oceans are calm, visibility is well over 100 feet, and the ocean life is amazing. With the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program, we begin with a short presentation on the basics of dive theory to include equipment, pressures, expectations, and safety.
After the completion of the theory, we move to the pool for a skill session with the instructor. We look at the gear and how it is used properly, how to clear a mask, remove and replace your regulator, and neutral buoyancy. We practice these basic skills and give the divers as much time as needed in the pool to become comfortable. Not placing a time limit on the pool session allows the divers to play with their buoyancy, practice their fin kicks, and learn to do a hover without touching the bottom or breaking the surface.
After the completion of the pool session and a quick break for lunch, we head to the boat for a two tank dive on the reefs of Playa Del Carmen. With a maximum depth of 40 feet, there is plenty to see on the dive. Hard and soft coral are abundant and the number of fish species is immense. There are triggers, stingrays, surgeons, sea turtles, eels, lobster, crabs, and hundreds of others in all shapes and colors. Bring your camera with you or let us know and we will be happy to take some photos of your experience.
