Always wanted to try scuba but never had the chance until now? Discover the “other” side of your Caribbean Paradise, the wonders of the under-water world. This is a great opportunity for those keen to try diving for the first time at a carefully selected beginner’s site that provides good conditions for the novice diver. Although Nevis is famous for its deep dive sites, it’s not uncommon to have a special experience at shallow sites such as “Hot Springs”, “Bugs’ Hole” or “The Church Reef”. You may be lucky and spot a turtle, an eel, a stingray, an octopus, a spiny lobster or even a baby shark among the reefs. From the pier, you are first taken to the dive base. You must then attend the lecture session explaining the equipment, safety and the physiology of diving. Then it is time to get wet as time is spent in a familiar environment such as a swimming pool or a shallow bay with an instructor where you will become comfortable with the equipment and learn skills to prepare you for your dive. You will then be taken on a boat trip to your dive site followed by another briefing. Your accompanied dive is done on a shallow reef in depths normally between 12 to 30 feet. You will be able to dive once skills have been demonstrated in the initial stages of the course. There is no license issued for this course.
