Come and see the world from a different perspective on the Aruba Discover Scuba Beginner Dive Excursion. There is a lot going on under the water.
You'll meet outside your Aruba cruise ship terminal and be driven about 10 minutes to the dive shop. In order to prepare for your first dive, you'll spend about 20 minutes in a theory class to learn about the techniques of diving and the equipment you'll be using. To dive safely under the water you need to understand the effects of pressure, how the dive gear works, the hand signals you'll need to use, and more.
Next, you'll put on your dive equipment and spend some time in waist-deep water practicing breathing, clearing your ears, and other vital skills. Once you're ready the instructors will take you to your dive. The dives will be either shore or boat entry depending on the weather conditions that day. You'll dive with a maximum of 4 guests for each instructor and it will be a shallow dive of no more than 40 feet. The tank will last about 45 minutes depending on your breathing. It's now time to enjoy the coral reef and abundant marine life.
Rest assured that you will be well taken care of as safety is the number 1 priority. The expert PADI instructors take all the necessary steps to make sure everyone is safe, comfortable, and having a great experience. They will be with you at all times from start to finish.
After your dive, you can choose to enjoy the pier at the dive shop or ask to be dropped off at Surfside Beach. This popular beach has restaurants, bars, quiet surf, and a playground for families. Enjoy some good food, drinks, or the beach and it's just a 15-minute walk back to your Aruba cruise ship. Please note that food and drinks at the beach are not included in the price and if you choose to stay at the beach, the return to the cruise terminal is at your own expense and responsibility.
Once you try this beginner dive in Aruba, you'll be ready to explore more of the underwater world and its mysteries.
