Diving course

Get to know the underwater world on this introductory diving course


With an experienced instructor, you will learn the basics of scuba diving in a safe and controlled environment. Learn how to use the diving equipment, discover the underwater world and see wonderful sea creatures off the coast of Barcelona.

This "try dive" is especially recommended for newcomers or beginners. The course lasts approximately three hours, of which the first 30-40 minutes are briefed on how the equipment works and how to use it safely. You learn how to communicate underwater with hand signals and receive information for the further course of the dive.

You then put on your wetsuit and booties in the changing room. A sufficient number of suits in various sizes are available.

Once on the water, your dive instructor will guide you step by step. You have enough time to adapt to the surroundings and the movements at your own pace. Although you will have learned how to equalize in the introduction, starting the dive from the beach will make it easier for your ears to adjust to the higher pressure.

You can stay underwater for about an hour, but that depends a lot on how you breathe: the faster you breathe, the quicker the compressed air from the bottle is used up. During the dive, your guides will take some photos and videos so you have a souvenir of the activity.

The course takes place in a small group of up to 6 people.
