Discover Scuba Diving

During your next holiday to Alicante why not enjoy a day trip to discover scuba diving and what it's like to breath and swim under water that includes two dives for less than 100€. Many holidaymakers to the sunny Costa Blanca have thought about trying scuba diving and have gone ahead and paid for a course such as PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver, only to find the theoretical part of the course too difficult or they are just not comfortable with scuba diving, and believe me it does happen and you can lose a substantial amount of money.

Discover Scuba Diving

By doing an introductory course such as Discover Scuba Diving, allows you to take those all important first steps such as the totally foreign feeling of breathing underwater for the first time, that will usually determine whether pursuing a hobby or even a career in scuba diving is really for you. The waters around Alicante City unfortunately do not provide good conditions for scuba diving, but the nearby town of Santa Pola which is just a 20 minute drive is very popular for all sorts of wind and water sports including scuba diving. Based in the town's sports marina, Dive Academy Santa Pola have a great team of fully qualified instructors and offer all types of PADI courses as well as their Discover Scuba Diving Adventure.

Discover Scuba Diving Itinerary

As part of a group you will head to one of the nearby coves for a mini class in safety and the basics of scuba diving such as moving and communicating underwater and what the various equipment is used for. After your introduction and a bit of practice in the shallows your instructor will take you on an initial short dive out to sea. By this time most people are hungry so it's a stop for lunch before heading out for the second dive of the day. By the end of the day divers should have a good feel for whether they wish to complete a more advanced course.

Christmas Ice Skating

Although it very rarely snows in Alicante, those visiting during the festive season can enjoy Christmas ice skating which is very popular here at this time of year.
