Frequently Asked Questions
The gentle hiss of the air as you breathe in and out. The bubbles and refreshing water around you. The feeling of calmness, peace and quiet. The underwater world is full of light, color and life. The corals are beautiful and the fish are mesmerizing. It’s amazing, and unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.
Almost anybody. The minimum age is 10 years old and there is no maximum age. You don’t need to be an Olympic athlete but you do need to be generally fit and healthy.
No it isn’t. Scuba diving is a safe and fun family activity. Just listen to your Instructor and follow the safety rules.
Sadly shark populations are in a sharp decline and unless you are diving a site that promotes shark dives, you are unlikely to catch a glimpse of a passing shark. It’s a bit of a bummer, because as the joke goes “scuba divers are the only ones who jump IN the water when someone yells Shark, lol!”
If sharks are all you want to see, consider signing up for a shark dive in Australia, Egypt or South Africa where shark dives are the norm. The Bahamas are world renown for their shark dives (they bait them) where divers kneel on the bottom and watch the shark whisperers pet and feed the sharks and sometimes they will flip the sharks over and put them in a trance.
Spear fishermen get to see sharks way more often than scuba divers because sharks learn that the sound of a spear gun means free food and they will sometimes show up and take the fish before anyone can get it back to the boat. This ticks off “spear fisher people” to no end.
Otherwise, depending on where you dive, a scuba diver could go more than 100 dives without seeing a sharky shark. If you’re lucky you may see one, but it’s more likely he will go out of his way to avoid you.
If you wear soft contact lenses, you can wear those when you dive and enjoy excellent vision. If soft contacts aren’t an option, No problemo! ScubaPro and Tusa both make world class dive masks that allow a diver to insert a prescription lense. They are very affordable and often the dive shop will have your specific prescription already in inventory.
No, you don’t.
If you’re taking a discover Scuba class, we provide the mask, fins and snorkel.
When you are ready to get certified, you will need your own mask, fins and snorkel. It’s imperative that your mask and fins fit properly and the dive shop carries a wide variety of gear to ensure you get a proper fit.
All scuba gear (regulator, wetsuit, tank, BCD, weights and dive computer), is included in the price of your certification.
