WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT ON A GUIDED DIVE?

Upon entering our dive center you will meet your guide, and the guide will accompany you during these guided dive(s).

While enjoying coffee/tea or water, you fill in the medical statement with the accompanying papers.
After you have become acquainted & the papers have been completed, it is time to select all the diving equipment and try it on in our SSI Diamond Dive Center.
When all diving equipment is fitted, it is time to assemble your dive set.

Have you booked a refreshing dive?
Then you will assemble the dive set together with the guide, the signs will be explained as well as a number of exercises.
During the dive, the guide will make sure you are completely at ease so that you can enjoy your time underwater to the best of your ability.

Because our guide dive(s) mainly consist of small groups, the guide has plenty of time to make your dive as pleasant and fun as possible.
After you have gained a unique experience, we come back to the dive center, and there we will discuss the dive again while enjoying coffee/tea or water.

The duration for 1 guided dive will be approximately +-2.5 hours.

Would you like to make 2 dives in 1 day?
We start the day at our diving school at 08:15 AM.
After you have finished the first dive of the day, you come back to the diving school, then you can choose to take a break.
You can keep this break at the diving school. After the break, we can go out again to make the 2nd dive.

Would you like to continue immediately after the first dive?
No problem, we always come back to the diving school to change the tanks.
After this 2nd dive, we return to the diving school and we will discuss and log the dive(s) while enjoying coffee/tea or water.

The duration for 2 guide dives will be approximately +- 6 hours.

PARTNER WHO DOES NOT DIVE?

Are you the only one in the group who dives?
If there is room in our bus to go to the dive sites, the partner, father, mother or the children can come with us to the dive site for free to snorkel independently or lie on the beach.
Does the person have no snorkeling equipment?
We provide free snorkeling equipment during the dive consisting of: Wetsuit, shoes, fins, mask + snorkel.

DO YOU WANT TO REMIND YOUR DIVE?

Capture your underwater memories, perfect for sharing the beautiful underwater world with your friends or family.

Our instructors are in the water for your safety, if the instructor is taking pictures while diving, the emphasis is on taking the pictures and not on the safety of our customers.
