Scuba diving with dolphins
Can anybody do an introductory dive with the dolphins? If you are a confident swimmer between the ages of 8 to 88 years old, you can participate in this special activity. You don’t have to have any previous experience with diving. Is equipment provided? Full scuba equipment including air tanks is provided. How long is the session? Participants go into the water with their own personal instructor. The session lasts for one hour. Half an hour is devoted to fitting wetsuits and fins, signing the medical statement and afterwards a briefing. Once the briefing is completed, you will meet your instructor who will fit you with the scuba gear. Half an hour is spent in the water. How deep will I dive? You will descend to a maximum depth of 6 meters, and see the dolphins as well as a big variety of fish and corals. What will the dolphins be doing? During our visit with the dolphins in the water, we will be observing them in their natural habitat, hunting, playing, mating and teaching the younger ones. When a dolphin approaches, it does so of its own free will. We respect this approach by not touching, chasing or feeding them. Are there any limitations to participating in the activity? For your own safety, it is important that we will be notified if you are suffering from the following: ear problems, respiratory problems (e.g. asthma, sinus and bronchitis), heart problems, high/low blood pressure, epilepsy, diabetes or claustrophobia. If you have had recent surgery or illness, have open wounds, take medication, or suffer from other medical problems or limitations we should be notified. Pregnant women are not allowed to dive.
