….Cedric was our instructor and he was terrific. I was very nervous about actually diving. My husband and boys had no fear. Cedric made sure that we ALL had the best experience. My fears were completely unfounded because we were in such capable hands. I would highly recommend this dive center. The dive helpers were terrific and the food was amazing. Our cook prepared the greatest food on an island. It was a great experience to spend the night on such a beautiful place. Thanks for a great time…..Tripadvisor review Feb 2016

PADI Discover Scuba Diving

1 day

1 day

If you want to find out what it is like to breathe underwater but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving will let you try diving to see if you like it. In this introductory program you will receive a brief basic instruction followed by a short shallow water practice session. Then, you are ready for your first open water dive alongside your instructor. After this training dive and a break on one of the virgn beaches or at the Ranger Station we will do another – now real – fun dive to a maximum of 12 meters / 40 feet). On this dive you will be already  more comfortable and see even more of Coiba’s incredible marine life.

If you enjoy it (and you undoubtably will!), you can do even more supervised dives with us, or continue on to Open Water Diver or Scuba Diver courses.
