Get ready for a bright 8 am hotel pick-up and drive out to the Dive Center inside Iberostar Costa Dorada Hotel. Your instructor will give a presentation and hand out paperwork for your group to fill out. Suit up in your safety equipment and head over to the pool for training and theory. Your PADI certified instructor will show you some basic scuba diving exercises and rules. You will practice them while getting used to swimming underwater with the full scuba equipment.
At around 9:30 am, you’ll depart from the beach on board a twin-engine diving catamaran. Dive sites are chosen depending on sea conditions, group size, and age. Dive sites are between a 10 to 40 minute boat ride from each other. Enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the massive mountain Isabel De Torres as your captain steers you toward your jump off points.
You'll have the opportunity to participate in two dives in two different sites. Maximum depth is 12 meters. Maximum time is 40 minutes or when divers get to 60 BAR (before reserve). At around 1 pm, after exploring the underwater depths of Puerto Plata, you will be taken back to your hotel.
