Take an introductory SCUBA course in Cancun and dive at one of Mexico's best diving spots. During this all-day adventure, learn the basics of scuba in a resort pool and then move to your first open-water dive. The one-tank dive on Cancun's local reefs does not require full certification, and all equipment is provided for you. Expert instructors are on hand to ensure you are safe and enjoy your time underwater.
What to Expect
Explore the underwater world that scuba certification opens up with this beginner's dive course in Cancun. Start with a 2-hour class on dry land, where you'll learn about breathing techniques, underwater communication and equipment care and operation in a lecture format. 

Slip into the resort's pool to test out your equipment and apply your newfound knowledge. Practice underwater hand signals and get the hang of buoyancy. Make sure your equipment fits properly and ask your instructor if you have any questions or concerns.

Next, it's time to head out into the ocean to visit one of Cancun's spectacular diving spots. The instructor will lead your small group on their first open water dive using one oxygen tank each. Explore the Caribbean’s underwater world safely with your foundational knowledge of scuba. Keep an eye out for nurse sharks, lobsters, and several varieties of turtles.

Great Dive

Small outfit, but really take care of their clients. Also had a professional photographer taking pictures which made the dive (or memories of the dive) even better.
