DIVING BAPTISM | TRY DIVING
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be able to breathe underwater and try diving? If you want to find out, but are not quite ready to take the plunge into a full certification course, Try Diving with Buceo Islas Cíes Center offers a version of this program, either in a pool or at the Cíes Islands. Why not Try Diving it while you’re in Vigo on vacation?
While not a full Scuba Course, during the try Diving experience you will learn how to use the right scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.
This is where the fun begins
There is nothing like the feeling of being able to breathe in the underwater environment for the very first time. After a few minutes of awestruck wonder, our customers realize how easy scuba diving actually is. The biggest challenge instructors have with people try diving program is not getting participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the program is over. It’s so much fun!
How do we do it?
When you go discover scuba diving, you discover excitement and adventure – freedom and serenity. Nothing compares to the “weightless” exhilaration of breathing underwater.
You learn the basics you need to dive under the direct supervision of a professional scuba instructor:
- Learn what wearing the scuba equipment feels like and how easy it is to move around underwater while wearing it.
- Find out what it is like to breathe underwater and learn whether you can be comfortable there.
- Learn some basic skills and safety rules.
What will you experience?
After about 30 minutes of safety briefing, theories and gearing up, we will immerse in the water. You will get use to breathing through mouth, learn to equalise your ears and enjoy the wonderful weightless sensation in the water. Explore the alluring underwater world and the sea creatures of the Atlantic ocean! We will also take photos so you’ll have something to remember this first diving experience by.
You will be accompanied by your instructor the whole time and will not dive exceed the depth of 10 metres. Dive time is approximately 45-60 minutes, depending on your comfort level and how fast you are consuming the air in your tank.
