Autonomous diving, unlike free diving, is the practice that consists of submerging totally or partially in the water using self-contained breathing apparatus, the diving equipment.By having with you a compressed air source, the diver may remain submerged longer than in apnea and / or snorkeling techniques, and he is not attached to the surface by air devices.Autonomous diver typically moves under the water using flippers. However, some divers can move with the help of a DPV (Diver Propulsion Vehicle), commonly known as "scooter".Autonomous diving is internationally known by the term 'SCUBA', which is an acronym for 'Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus'.If it is your first dive, you will be accompanied all the time by an instructor who will show you the seabed wonders.
Recreational diving, the most wanted, is safe. It covers non-decompression diving - with possibility of immediate return to the surface without sequel or risk to the organism - and is limited to 10 meters of depth. Duration varies with cylinder capacity, depth and diver air consumption. On average, a traditional cylinder allows you to stay between 35 and 50 minutes in diving.It was the French Jacques-Yves Costeau who developed, together with an engineer, the autonomous breathing apparatus that has a high pressure valve. In 1.679, the first dive was done with comfortable underwater clothing.To this day, various modifications have been made to equipment and clothing to give divers more comfort and safety.SCRIPTMeeting at the hotel - 2 hour trip to Arraial do Cabo with stop on the road for breakfast (not included) - Briefing about diving and equipment use - Diving for approximately 30 minutes - Lunch at the Floating Restaurant - Return to the Boat Taxi port - 2 hour trip to Rio de Janeiro - return to the hotel.TOUR DURATION12 hours SUGGESTED BEGINNING TIME06:00 a.m. DEPTH6 to 35 meters (19 to 115 feet), depending on the diving area.VISIBILITYDepending on the season, it may vary from 5 to 15 meters (19 to 49 feet).
