Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Make your own way to the Montego Bay dive center to begin your scuba diving introductory course. 

    Receive one theory lesson followed by a practice session in the pool, then set out on the boat to put your new skills into action on a dive. You'll experience the thrill of diving under the close supervision of your professional diving guide.

    You can do a shallow dive with this training, with a maximum depth of 40 feet (12 meters). The course covers basic concepts and diving skills before going out on the ocean. It's an excellent option if you don't have the time or dedication to become a certified PADI scuba diver or open water diver.

    Your experience ends with return to the starting point in Montego Bay.
