Try Scuba Diving while you discover the underwater world of l'Ametlla de Mar, a beach town blessed with the biggest posidonia meadows in Catalonia! Enjoy the thrill of diving for the first time in a safe and beautiful environment. Children are welcome!
Feel the sensation of diving for the first time with oceanographers in l'Ametlla de Mar! Try Scuba Diving is a 3-hour activity, available for everyone starting from an age of 8.
The activity starts with a marine biology seminar of 45 minutes where you will learn about the most common marine species that you may encounter while diving, as well as other marine curiosities. Being familiar with the "usual suspects" of l'Atmella's marine wild life will help you relax and make the most of your experience.
Then, you will learn about how to use diving equipment and how to breath underwater. Our safety instructions will ensure that you dive in a safe way, but they will also help you minimize the impact of your dive on the marine environment. Last but not least, you will learn the basics of underwater communication and signals.
Once you know and feel comfortable applying these important tips, we will walk to the beach and we will test your skills underwater. We will then do a 45-minute dive following a beautiful, easy route through posidonia meadows, sandy bottoms and rocky shores, where you will thrive with the underwater flora and fauna. During the dive we will reach a maximum depth of 5 meters (3 meters for children).
After the dive, and back on land, you will have the opportunity of going over the wildlife that you have encountered during your dive with your Guide, while you enjoy a complimentary snack.
All our Diving Guides are marine biologists or oceanographers. During our dives we engage in citizen science projects to which we contribute with the data we collect during our dive.
We will provide you with all the necessry diving equipment.
We have special equipment for children.
Children must be at least 8 years old to take part in this activity.
