Try Scuba Program

So, you are at a crossroad wondering if Scuba Diving is really for you and would like to learn more without going through a certification process. Why not let us try to convince you by trying our NAUI Try Scuba program?

The NAUI Try Scuba program allows you to experience breathing underwater and seeing marine life without going through a certification course. It is a one day program where our qualified NAUI Instructor will teach you basic skills required for you to dive safely and enjoyably. After practicing these skills, your NAUI Instructor will watch over you and lead you on 2 dives. Your safety and positive experience is always our concern.

The program will be conducted on Sapi Island, in our opinion, one of the nicest places to learn diving because of the gentle slope underwater and the often calm seas.
