Learn to Dive
If diving is new to you, you may enroll in an ‘introduction-dive’ and be able to explore the beautiful underwater world. Kids may participate in a ‘bubble maker course’.
If you don’t want to scuba dive, you may still enjoy the wonders of the ocean beneath the surface. Just a pair of diving glasses and a snorkel you will be amazed by the variety of the underwater life, even within the sheltered bay area. Snorkel sets are for hire at the dive shop.
