Intro to SCUBA Diving
Training dive from shore
Full scuba diving equipment rental
For individuals not certified, who wish to try out scuba diving
Generally we offer the Discover Scuba Diving program for those new to diving every afternoon, weather permitting.
Firstly, we’ll go through some theory, and then get into the water from the shore to learn and practice some basic skills.
After becoming familiar with the basic techniques, the instructor will lead you on an exploration of the surrounding seabed to discover the underwater world.
If you master the skills, on the following morning we can then take you out on the dive boat, for 2 shallow reef dives in the Portofino marine park. Upon request it will be possible to dive the underwater statue of the Christ of the Abyss.
If you would like to book a boat tour in combination with your DSD program, please check the following package:
