You will get to enjoy a unique underwater adventure cruising along the reef for about 30-35 minutes. You will be seated on your own individual scooter cruiser with your head and shoulders within a clear dome, and your air supply constantly replenished from the scuba tank, enabling you to breathe normally. Though your body is immersed in the water, your head remains dry inside the dome, allowing you to breathe easily and wear contact lenses or glasses comfortably, while admiring the 180 degree view.
The scooter cruiser is a self-propelled diving vehicle, used primarily for introductory dives to a maximum depth of 10 meters. For your maximum safety and to avoid any damages to the reef, you will cruise at depths of about 4-6 meters as part of this adventure. When going on the scooter cruiser adventure you don't need to wear a mask or a mouthpiece as in normal scuba diving, and the air tank and diving weights are on the scuba-doo, not on you. This is why no lengthy courses are required, and you can enjoy a special underwater adventure within minutes.
From a safety point of view, each group of 4 participants is accompanied by a fully qualified PADI dive instructor and additional qualified divers who are there to assist on any matter. The dive depths are controlled by the use of an attached buoy, thus preventing damage to the coral or the diver. Also, there is no need to know how to swim in order to experience the scooter cruiser; in fact the scooter cruiser can even be used by people with minor disabilities.
The scooter cruiser has a simple steering and throttle mechanism and is powered by an electric motor, making it non-polluting and safe for the marine environment. At a rate of 2.5 knots you're able to ride amongst the spectacular underwater world, or remain stationary and observe the abundant fish. For the benefit of all participants your entire experience is captured in digital photography, with pictures being available on CD as soon as you have completed your scooter cruiser adventure.
- Pictures of your scooter adventure on CD – approximately 50 pictures and short video clips
- Use of clean towels after each dive
- A complimentary cocktail, soft drink, tea, or coffee
- A generous slice of home-made chocolate cake, home-made samosas, and chili bites
