1- The meeting point will be at our diving center in the port of La Savina. There we will give you all the equipment (mask, fins, vest, regulator and neoprene suit). You will have a place to leave your things. You will only need a bottle of water (it can be to recharge). You will put on the neoprene right there.


2- We will embark a few meters from the diving center. The boat is for 12 people (it may or may not be complete). We will navigate to the immersion spot (about 15 minutes). During the trip, our instructors will tell you everything you need to know for the immersion.


3- In general (and always depending on the sea conditions that day) the most common dive spot are: El Arco, Punta Gavina, Es Banc, Cuevas or Punta Prima.


4- Our staff will help you equip and you will enter the water with the instructor. Once in the water our team will give you the last indications before starting the dive. You will have a professional instructor accompanying you throughout the tour, he will supervise all safety aspects so that you can relax and enjoy 100%.


5- The immersion will last as long as it takes you to consume the air from the bottle, this is highly variable since some people consume more air than others due to their physical build or the way they breathe. Usually you spend 25 to 40 minutes underwater.


6- After the dive we will get on the boat to wait for all the participants. From there we will sail back to the port. In our diving center you can take a fresh water shower, change your clothes and buy a souvenir.
