Full description

Come learn the basics of scuba diving on a beginner's diving tour before exploring the shallow dive site in the protected bay at Escambron Marine Park, San Juan. Marvel at the sea creatures of this underwater world, including turtles, sea horses, and fish, as you get to grips with diving.

Meet your diving instructor, get fitted for your equipment, and go over the fundamentals of diving before getting into the water. Then, your dive pro will start you out in waist-deep water (3 ft (91 cm)) to get you comfortable breathing underwater and teach you some basic scuba diving skills.

Once you are comfortable, follow your instructor on an underwater tour of all the beautiful aquatic life and fish in the protected La Pocita bay. Keep your eyes peeled for green sea turtles and seahorses that are often found in this area. Head back to shore after your adventure.
