We leave from our dive center to a nice sheltered reef. You get a briefing on what to do and what to expect during the day; then you spend some time doing shallow water skills and getting comfortable with the gear. After that, we go for a dive. A dive professional is in the water with you at all times, and will handle your safety. We are back between 11:30 – 1.
Maximum depth of the program is 8m – how deep we go will depend upon your comfort level in the water and the instructor's discretion (we want you to have
fun, but safety obviously comes first!). The dive duration depends on you, your air consumption and comfort level. This program lasts for 30 Minutes and the total Scuba diving experience including basic training and know how is about 2 Hours.
Your trip begins at a given allotted time (Depends upon the booking slot you get) from the dive shop where you gear up with all necessary scuba jackets, oxygen masks and other equipment required for Scuba Diving. You are taught various signs and basics about how to use the equipment under water. All necessary safety procedures are taught before the dive begins. We follow the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) general standards and recommendations. Trained professional divers assist you during the dive. The dive sites may vary at Havelock based upon conditions.
We suggest you to carry pen drive/dongle to take your video after the dive ends. We usually provide CD, however, we have faced circumstances where the CD is corrupt after the customers get back home.
Pictures of you underwater will be provided – we can burn this on a CD if you want, but if you bring a memory
card or pen drive, that is generally better and more reliable.
