We meet at the shop for an introduction into scuba diving and to get geared up for the diving.  This is followed by a practical session in the shallow lagoon at Pereybere Beach.  When you are comfortable and confident with scuba diving in the lagoon, we take you on our boat to an aquarium-like reef diving site where you will experience underwater life in Mauritius.  After the boat trip, we meet back at the shop for Mauritian snacks and refreshments and chat about the experience.Bring your swimming costume, towel, sunscreen and enjoy an unforgettable experience in Mauritius.
The Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) is a combination of 3 learning steps.  You are guided by a PADI qualified instructor on a ratio of 1:4.1- A 20-30 minute theory session where scuba gear and its use is introduced to the diver, explanations on safety, skill developments, underwater sign language and the importance of protecting the natural ocean environment and it's inhabitants.2- There is a 1st confined dive in the shallows at the beach between 0.6 - 1.8 meters for skill practice focused on mask clearing, removal and recovery of your mouthpiece and buoyancy exercises using the jacket and breathing.3- If all 3 exercises have been performed comfortably, a 2nd fun dive without exercises is carried out further out on the reef in a depth ranging from 6-12 meters for a duration of 30-45 minutes, according to the divers air consumption.During this dive, you can see a large variety of reef life as though you were swimming in an aquarium! If you dive at the right time, you can even see dolphins, rays and other large pelagic creatures. Finally, once this short program completed, the diver can join in on any other dive site with the Instructor in the range of 12 meters for more fun dives and discovery. After the fun dive, you return to the shop for some Mauritian snacks and refreshments and chat about what was seen underwater.Bring your swimming costume, towel, sunscreen and enjoy an unforgettable experience in Mauritius.
