Museo Atlántico for beginners

For people who do not have a dive license, we offer a special program to visit the unique Museo Atlántico.

Duration

The beginner program consists of three parts and takes about 5 hours in total. We start at 10:00 at the dive centre and finish at approximately 15:00.

It begins with a try dive from the shore. For this first dive, we explain the most important dive theory in a 20 minute safety briefing. Together with an instructor you do a dive from the beach with a maximum depth of 6 meters. After this dive, you will learn a few basic dive skills in the pool. Then you have a short break to eat and drink something close to the dive centre. After the briefing, we will go by boat to the underwatermuseum. The statues of the Museo Atlántico are at a depth of 14 meters. Because you are not allowed to dive deeper than 12 meters, you will stay with a private guide to ensure that you stay at this depth. Here you will have a perfect view of the statues.
