What to Expect

At the beginning we will greet you with a bottle of water so that we can calmly discuss the entire plan and fill out the necessary documents. We will show you on a map where we will go, what attractions await us there and what will be the order of the various activities during the day.

After this short break and the necessary paperwork, we will select and pack your equipment. We use only proven and fully tested dive equipment, which is disinfected and checked after each use. After packing your equipment we will head to our boat.

After arriving at the first dive site, in a predetermined order we go under the water and make a dive. Its length depends on air consumption, but usually lasts about 40 minutes.

After the first dive we will do a “surface break” and at the same time move to the second dive site, according to a pre-arranged plan. During this break there will be time for snacks, drinks and sharing of experiences.

At the end of the day, we will return to base where we will fill out your logbooks so that this dive on Caño Island will stay with you forever.
