Full description

This "try dive" is an activity recommended for scuba beginners. This experience lasts three hours, the first 35 minutes of which will consist of a briefing on how the equipment works, how to communicate underwater using hand signals, and how the tour will go. Afterwards, get fitted in the provided wetsuit and boots in the changing room. When you get to the water, your guide will break up the activity step by step, and you'll have plenty of time to get used to each one at your own pace. Starting from the beach makes everything easier, especially for your ears as you'll have more time to get used to the pressure. In general, you can stay under the water for about an hour — this, of course, depends on you because the faster you breathe, the quicker you'll go through the air in your tank. During the dive, your guides will snap some photos and videos, so you will have a souvenir from the activity.

    Absolutely amazing. Traveled to Barcelona for Labor Day weekend and wanted to try scuba diving for the first time. Guides were extremely patient with me, my wife and our friends as it was our first time. Instructions were clear and simple. Guides were very caring and made sure you felt comfortable the entire time. Wet suits were amazing, equipment and gear was extremely professional. My wife was scared to jump in with all of the equipment on but the guide Alex was patient with her and kept her calm, built up her confidence and sure enough she was in the water in no time! Best experience we’ve had in the 8 months we’ve been traveling Europe. Words can’t describe it or do it justice. If you’re hesitant on doing this tour, IT IS A MUST!!

    Being a person with reduced mobility I was quite stressed. All the instructors were attentive, understanding, in a good mood and reassuring. I was able to dive for 25 minutes accompanied by the instructor. Everything went wonderfully. I can't wait to start over. I highly recommend this experience and the instructors are top notch. They deserve all the positive reviews

    Great Experience! I wanted to try new water activity in Barcelona. The Instructors are Professional and friendly. They explained everything including Equipment and how to deal under water. The instructor, Nicol knows what he is doing, very patient. We were divided in small groups. I learned something new today and ticked off diving from my Bucket list. I highly recommend this diving School. Thank you!
