What is SNUBA Diving?

SNUBA is the perfect blend of snorkeling and SCUBA diving. If you’re a newcomer to diving, you may have never even heard of SNUBA; many people haven’t. Even those who have might only know that it’s sort of a hybrid of snorkeling and SCUBA, but don’t really know exactly what that means. If you’re one of those people, don’t worry; we’ll tell you everything you need to know about SNUBA and why everyone who tries it wants to do it again and again.

What do I need to SNUBA dive?

When it comes to SNUBA diving, you don’t have to be a certified diver to enjoy the freedom of breathing underwater and you don’t have to carry or know how to operate an air tank. Your SNUBA tank is attached to a raft floating above you on the surface, connected to you by a long hose. You’ll be able to dive as far as fifteen feet down and stay under much longer than you could with a snorkel, so you won’t have to keep surfacing for air.

You’ll always be under the watchful eyes of our trained SNUBA instructors and they’ll make sure you’re comfortable and relaxed before you take your first dive.

The only requirement to SNUBA diving is to be at least 8 years of age.
