Hi all! My self and my family (16 of us) will be in lanzarote, playa del carmen from June 29th, 6 of us are all avid snorkelers and we did a 2 hour scuba dive experience 2 weeks ago but only pool based and we would absolutely love to dive open water when we are there. Is this possible without a full PADI? Thanks!

Hi, If it's a first dive at the depth of around 6ft maximum, (I'm just curious) what type of marine life would you usually see (or could you see if you're lucky)? Thanks :)

Hey, On the first time dive we go to a maximum depth of 6 metres. We do the dive in Playa Chica bay and you can expect to see cow bream, ornate wrasse, damselfish, parrotfish, flounders maybe even an arrowhead crab too!
