FAQ

What gear will I need?

We supply all gear. Of course if you plan to dive regularly, you might want to buy your own equipment, fitted to your needs.
To do scuba dive for instance, you will supply mask, snorkel, fins, buoyancy control device, weight system, scuba tank, regulator, SPG and wetsuit of course.

I have never dived before.

Welcome to our diving centre and don´t worry, our instructors will go very smoothly, you will get to know the gear first and once you get comfortable with it, they will teach you everything you need to dive safely while enjoying this unique experience.

My ears hurt when I go to the bottom of a swimming pool. Will that be a problem?

No, assuming you have no irregularities in your ears and sinuses. The discomfort is the normal effect of water pressure pressing in on your ear drums. Fortunately, our bodies are designed to adjust for pressure changes in our ears – we will teach you how. If you have no difficulties adjusting to air pressure during flying, you’ll probably experience no problem learning to adjust to water pressure while diving.
