Default Introduction to scuba

My wife and I will be sailing on the Crown Princess in April and have signed up for the "Introduction to Scuba" excursion in Bonaire. Have any of you taken this excursion and could tell us about it. My wife is a very capable swimmer and I am so-so. Thanks, Jerry

Jerry i can give you some general information. Our son took this course on the Golden Princess to SCUBA in St. Maarten. All i can tell you is that he loved it. You need to be a capable swimmer who is comfortable in and under the water.Your safety is the dive instructors main concern, they will give you a couple of tries to get the hang of SCUBA diving, and if for any reason they determine that you are not capable of handling it they will not let you dive. Our son loved it so much that he wants to get PADI certified.

Default Introduction to Scuba

Thanks Lisa, The brochure says that it is a shallow water introduction to scuba and that we walk into the water from the beach and then follow the instructor. It sounds a little less intensive than what your son took. I hope Palmer digs out from the last snowfall. Worcester and the western part of the state got it more than we did near Boston. Thanks again, Jerry

Hi Jerry, we are all dug out from the storm. It took the better part of Saturday to dig out.
