ShoreTrips says...

The instructors at this cool dive shop are passionate about their sport and they're eager to share the wonders of Costa Maya's underwater world with you. Fortunately, the climate and water conditions are favorable for diving all year long, so you can visit anytime!

There's nothing like the thrill of breathing underwater for the very first time! It takes a little getting used to, but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, you'lll realize that scuba diving is effortless--and fun! The biggest challenge for instructors is not coaxing divers IN to the water, but coaxing them OUT when the program is over.

During the Discover Scuba Diving experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world. Under the direct supervision of a PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) professional, you’ll experience what if feels like to wear scuba equipment and how easy it is to move around underwater with it on. You'll also learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course, should you decide to take the next step.

  • This tour includes:
  • Discover Scuba Diving course, which includes 30 minutes of theory, 30-40 minutes of practical exercises, and 1 dive to a maximum depth of 40 feet
  • Guidance of experienced instructors
  • Full equipment rental (includes BCD, regulator, mask, snorkel, and shortie wet suit)
  • PADI certification
