Full description

Explore southern Ibiza’s underwater world during this beginner’s scuba diving course off San Antonio. Receive personalized attention from diving instructors at a dive center that has seen more first-time divers than anywhere else in Spain. The 3- to 4-hour course requires no previous dive experience and takes a maximum of 4 participants per diving instructor. The course is perfect for first-time divers, families, and children from 10 years old. Upon arrival at our diving boat in San Antonio port, you will be provided with your dive outfits and equipment, including a wetsuit, mask, fins, and a snorkel. The gear is yours for the entire trip, so you can snorkel as much as you like from the boat if you are not diving. As you sail to the dive locations, you can relax in the top deck solarium. Then get an introduction to a colorful underwater world during a 35-minute instructor and diving master guided tour, which includes a 15-minute theoretical class on board.

See what it feels like to be completely weightless as you put on your scuba tank and descend to a maximum depth of 26 feet (8 meters). When one group is diving, you can snorkel and discover by yourself the underwater world of the Ibiza coast. As you explore the beautiful house reef, look out for sleeping octopuses, swim with inquisitive fish, and delight in the huge variety of shapes, colors, and sizes of marine life. If you are lucky, you might even see a dolphin on the cruise back to San Antonio.

Fear is what makes you stronger

I enjoyed every bit of it! The instructor Chabo (funny guy) and Carla were excellent. When you go down it’s another world Like if you stand on a cliff and look down you want to fly but you don’t have wings to fly down, But with diving you can fly and see the nature’s hidden live treasures. The water is has greatest power be mindful and enjoy. Great activity

The highlight of our Ibiza vacation!

This diving taster course is suitable for everyone, whether big or small, whether an absolute beginner (like we were). We felt in good hands from start to finish. Our German-speaking diving instructor Mu was very personable, patient and explained everything very well. I never thought that diving would fascinate me so much. The weightless three-dimensional movement in a world that I only knew from television or an aquarium before. I advise you future Ibiza vacationers to take this taster course, you won't regret it. Our dive was accompanied by the photographer Lupe. The photos she took of us are the most brilliant memory of this experience :-)

The trip was really nice! The guide was there for you and took away all your concerns. The diving and subsequent snorkeling was very eventful. Under water you could discover all kinds of sea creatures. We would definitely do it again.
