The English-speaking SNUBA shore excursion guide and transportation will meet you right outside the cruise ship terminal and get your adventure started. It is a short 35-minute ride to the dive shop on the western end of the island. At the dive center, the friendly staff will get you checked in and your fun begins.
The certified and PADI-trained Nassau excursion dive masters will go over all of the equipment, safety instructions, and information before you hop aboard the dive boat. Learning how to SNUBA is really simple and guests of all ages can enjoy it (see restrictions). The only skills you need are basic swimming and comfort in the water.
The SNUBA diving excursion guides will assist you with your gear - mask, snorkel, fins, weight belt, breathing regulator, and harness. Your SCUBA tank that supplies your breathing air will float along on a raft on the surface. Your guide will monitor everything. They will take small groups into the water once at the dive site. You will start out on the surface and then slowly begin your way down. The maximum depth is only 15' for approximately 30 minutes. As you go down, you will need to clear your ears like when on a plane.
There is so much incredible marine life to see, in a way you never can when snorkeling. The guide will be with you the entire time to assist you. Before you know it, your SNUBA adventure will finish but the fun does not stop. Snorkeling gear is provided and you can snorkel at your leisure. There is also bottled water provided and you may bring snacks if you wish. We also have the Bubble watch option for those guests wishing to join but not to do this SNUBA excursion in Nassau.
When your SNUBA and Snorkel excursion is over, the boat will take you back to the dive center.
