Learning to scuba dive is an amazing experience, but not everyone is ready to jump in for the full open water scuba certification course. That's where the Resort Dive comes in!
A resort dive is a safe and excellent introduction to SCUBA that requires no previous diving experience. The half-day course is popular for people on vacation since it lets you experience the underwater world without having to invest time in classroom learning and tests. (For open water dive certification, generally plan on 4-5 days to complete everything.)
Plus, the experience and cost for a Resort Dive can be credited towards further training if you later decide to get scuba certified (usually for a period of six months).
A resort dive is a great option if you're traveling with non-diver friends -- introduce them to the amazing underwater world and get them hooked on diving too!
What's Included with a Resort Dive?
Resort courses are a half day and generally include your dive equipment such as BCD (buoyancy control device), regulator, gauges, tanks, and weights.
During the course you receive basic training on safety and equipment from a certified Dive Instructor, followed by a dive in open water to a maximum depth of 30 feet. After completing the course, you can dive again (and again!) to max 30 feet if accompanied by a certified Dive Instructor.
