9. Monopoli: Discover Scuba Diving in the Apulian Riviera
Have you ever wondered what it feels like to breathe underwater? If you want to try scuba diving, but are not yet sure if you want to take the course to get certified, the Discover Scuba Diving program is just for you. It is a quick and easy introduction to learning how to explore the underwater world. No fear: the class is suitable for beginners and you do not need to have had previous scuba diving experience. Experience the thrill of diving with us in the beautiful sea between Polignano a Mare and Monopoli, about 30 km south of Bari. An incredible area of the Apulian Riviera, characterized by rocky coastlines, crystal clear waters and stunning sea caves. What we will do The appointment is at the time selected when booking at the diving center in Monopoli. Upon arrival, we will meet the instructor and be given all the necessary equipment (included in the fee). The first part of the class will be devoted to theoretical fundamentals. We will learn how to use the equipment, what are the basic safety rules and skills needed for diving. We will be able to put into practice immediately the notions learned in the first test dive (within 12 meters depth). After that, we will be driven to the beautiful Cala Incina, a real open-air "natural pool" about 10 minutes away. We will appreciate the variety of the rocky seabed, full of ravines, caves and different marine species, including corals, sponges and starfish. On the seabed, we will be able to admire various relics and the famous Madonnina Cave. The dive will last about 45 minutes and will take place under the supervision of the instructor to ensure our safety. After the dive is over, we will be driven back to the starting point.
