Discover/Intro to Scuba
This is an introductory course to scuba, otherwise known as a “Resort Course”: a 2-3 hour first experience in Cozumel’s special underwater world.
You will initially breathe off SCUBA (Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus) in 3-4 feet of water. As the comfort level increases, you will be taken to a depth of about 12 feet where several basic exercises are practiced. The experience most often culminates with an instructor/supervised fun dive to about 25 feet.
If you decide to continue into a full certification course, the price paid for this course will be applied toward the cost of full certification through Dive Paradise.
- Equipment Included (Basic scuba gear: mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device (BCD), dive gauges and a tank.)
- This class is not a certification course and thus does not qualify you for boat dives. However, following this course, students can hire a private instructor to go on a boat dive trip! On-island upgrade only (1 boat dive: $100, or 2 boat dives: $150).
- Minimum Age: 10 years old.
- No prior experience with scuba diving is necessary, but students need to be in reasonable physical health.
Adaptive Discover Scuba (for physically disabled guests) is taught by an Instructor specializing in adaptive scuba diving, and includes an additional in-water Divemaster buddy/escort and on-land transfer assistance
