Dedicated to those who are not in possession of a patent and would like to live this extraordinary experience.
From 8 to 100 years, you just need to feel good and have a good relationship with the sea. Fins, mask, lightweight diving suit, small cylinder, a chat with the instructor about the fundamentals, a test on the surface and then down with him breathing under water, surrounded by myriads of fish, defying the laws of gravity.
This experience can be tested in groups or individually.
t contemplates the first lesson as an aptitude test, during which you learn the fundamentals of the discipline. After first step, the continuation of the course is programmed with the athlete. The course continues with 5 more lessons/immersion in water and 3 theory lessons.
After the course you will get the international patent CMAS 1 star first degree FIPSAS which will allow you to dive in all the oceans of the world within the depth of 18 meters and accompanied by a guide. The course can be individual or in groups.
For our children, we prepared a specific course, taking into account two fundamental factors such as safety and fun. 4 lessons with immersion avoiding unnecessary (at this stage) theoretical lessons, teaching children to observe some basic rules and conveying them the respect for the sea.
They will learn how to clear mask underwater, to breath by the regulator, to compensate ears, to use fins and to swim under water with a small cylinder on the back. The use of the buoyancy compensator will be deliberately avoided as it would be too dangerous and totally unnecessary given the shallow depths that will be reached (6-7 meters). The lessons/diving will take place in areas of calm sea, full of life and without streams.
The course can be individual or in groups.
