The first option:
The Discover Scuba Diving course is a "try diving" option designed for people who have never been diving before or who are not certified but want to dive Cayman while on vacation. We start out by going over the basics of scuba diving and introduce you to the equipment. In shallow, clear, warm water we practice a few easy skills and get familiar breathing underwater with fish swimming past. Once comfortable, we take you on a guided tour of a beautiful shallow reef where you will see bright corals, sponges, huge tarpon, & an array of tropical fish. The entire experience is about 3 hours long from the time we pick you up from your hotel or condo along Seven Mile Beach to drop off. Our DSD is $99 USD per person and includes all equipment needed and a fantastic shallow dive to a max depth of 40ft. We conduct this course from our shore location where the water is ideal for new divers! No prior experience is needed. The course is safe, easy and fun. Minimum age requirement is 10 years old. Repeat DSD dives are $80 usd each under the direct supervision of your dive instructor.
