The assistants of the Instructors, will help you to equip in an adequate way, later, we will organize the groups to dive safely and in a reduced number of divers.
While a group dives together with the instructors and assistants of the Instructor, the others who remain on the boat, can enjoy practising Snorkeling (diving with mask and tube), sunbathing on our deck, swimming or simply relax in our fantastic boat.
Once we have to dive, the instructors and assistants will help us to enter the water from the back of our school boat, without any vicissitudes (such as jumping on the back as James Bond).
Already in the water, the instructors will stay with us asking us how we are, and with a simple Ok with our hand (which will have previously taught us the language of the signals) we will form the reduced group of diving, descending in a slow and progressive way to be able start the activity in a safe and fun way.
Our PADI Instructors, have extensive experience with beginners and will proceed in the cases that require, to take the hand to give more confidence and security to the beginner.
Once the group is flapping towards the bottom, an Instructor will guide the group and others will confine the group, always being aware of the safety and comfort of the immersion of the debutants.
The area of the dive is characterized by having a rocky area together with an area of seaweed where the colourful fauna of the sea of Ibiza coexist in a symbiotic way. This fauna consists of rock fish, sea stars, octopus, cuttlefish and an abundant flora such as anemones and nudibranchs, in addition, the visibility of the immersion point in ideal conditions is about 30 mt and without currents or tides, that is, a paradise submarine to enjoy your first experience, and thus be able to follow your training with more advanced diving courses such as the Scuba Diver or the Open Water that allow you to dive as a certified diver in the 5 continents.
The dive itself consists of a circular underwater route through which we will pass through several different habitats, such as the forest of algae of posidonia protected by Unesco, along with rocky areas.
