    What to Expect
    Your half-day scuba course will begin with convenient pickup at your hotel or the cruise port. Transfer to the dive shop to meet your PADI-certified instructor, who will guide you through the 3-hour course. 

    Start with a course on diving theory, including the mechanics of breathing and an orientation to the gear you'll use. The dive course includes one open-water dive, accompanied by your instructor, where you'll explore the underwater world and get a feel for the sport. 

    Get dropped off back at your hotel after the 3-hour course.
