Introductory scuba diving is diving for which you require absolutely no previous experience — you don’t even need to know how to swim! All you have to do is breathe and look at the fish — now we imagine you can do that!!
Obviously there is slightly more to do than that, but not much. Our experienced dive instructors will give you a comprehensive dive brief regarding the equipment, hand signals, diving procedures and answer any questions you may have enroute to the reef.
You will be required to fill out a dive medical questionnaire (supplied on the boat) to ensure that you have no medical problems (past or present) or taking any medication that may be contradictory to diving. Certain medical conditions and / or medication may prevent you from diving. If you are uncertain about this, please enquire when you make your reservation.
Scuba diving lesson, tuition and a few skill tests on board and holding onto a bar in the water. Top quality scuba diving equipment (including Wet / Stinger Suit). 30 minute hand-held, fully guided scuba dive. On arrival at the reef you are put into small introductory diver groups. The maximum group size on Ocean Free is 2 divers per instructor to ensure a very comfortable and relaxed experience. If you’re absolutely terrified, we will even offer you 1:1 instruction!! Ocean Free is the only company to offer such small numbers, as well as friendly, personalised instruction. Before entering the water the instructor will go through a few skills and then repeat once in the water holding onto a bar.
Once you are comfortable, you will slowly descend with your instructor and be gently guided over a beautiful coral garden 3-5m beneath the surface. Your qualified dive instructor will be with you the entire time, so you can enjoy the whole experience safely. If you’re still uncertain about whether or not to give it a go, then we are most pleased to advise that the Ocean Free policy allows you to try the dive and if after a few minutes being in the water you don’t like it, you can get out and not pay a cent. Now that’s an offer you can’t refuse! Come and give it a go — you won’t be disappointed!
