Overview
More
Established in 1989, we were the pioneers of this activity. In 1999 we converted our equipment to a unique solar electric system. We believe that taking care of the environment while enjoying what it has to offer is essential. Thousands of tourists have come to us for a great undersea adventure and we are so proud to be able to help non swimmers, paraplegics, celebrities and people of all ages enjoy the wonders under the sea. In shallow tropical waters that are protected inside the coral reef, divers are in 3 to 5 meters of water with even less above their heads. An underwater guide and 2 surface monitors take up to 8 clients on their 25 minute walk on soft sand avoiding any coral damage. After the dive all clients receive a complimentary Solar Sea Walk Dive Certificate and can view their underwater HD video and purchase a copy if they don't have their own camera. We were the first and are still proud to be the best in what we do. Come for your underwater adventure with us.

It’s an unforgettable experience! At the beginning, it was a bit scary because of the astronaut/undersea helmet that provides air. It has to be carried in such a way that the oxygen is kept inside. Otherwise the risk is straight forward: being drowned. Once we...More
