This is the perfect three-hour outing for those interested in getting their feet wet among a small group of beginner scuba divers, as you’ll get an overview on the basics before enjoying your first dive with expert masters in the waters off St. Maarten. With six fellow novices you’ll engage in an orientation led by dive masters that provides an instructional and operational overview of the equipment and techniques associated with scuba diving. Learn how to use the regulator and breathe underwater from certified instructors at one of the island’s most reputable dive shops. All your dive equipment, weights and wet suit are included. Then it’s time to hit the water, as a dive boat brings you to the ideal spot for your first open-water dive. With the helping hands of your instructors, you’ll descend under the surface in waters of up to 35 feet deep for the chance to experience first-hand the thrill of exploring underwater with scuba diving tanks and equipment. Take in the colorful coral and marine life under the sea before enjoying light refreshments on the boat ride back to shore.
