Scuba Diving Vacation for Beginners
Vacations are a time to relax, unwind, and soak up the sun, but there’s no reason you can’t come home from your trip with more than a tan to show for your time away. When you stay at Belize Dive Haven, you can enjoy some time on the beach and come home with a new skill if you sign up for our Intro to Scuba package, which was designed for beginners who want to learn to dive while on vacation.
Getting Started with PADI
PADI is the most popular diver certification body and is recognized around the world as such. The PADI Open Water Diver Certification program was designed for beginners to learn to scuba dive, and guests at Belize Dive Haven can receive their certification while enjoying the rest and relaxation of a resort vacation. All of our instructors are 5-star PADI-certified divers, so you can feel confident knowing that you are learning from the best.
Learning to Scuba Dive. What to Expect
Learning to scuba dive can seem overwhelming to many beginners, but learning while on vacation at Belize Dive Haven is the perfect time. We start the Intro to Scuba program in our luxurious 260-foot pool to get you comfortable wearing the equipment and breathing through a regulator. Once you are comfortable wearing the equipment and you understand all of the safety precautions, our instructors will take you out to the shallow reefs surrounding the resort to get you used to diving in open water. You will complete two dives each day over the course of 3 days, at which point you will receive your PADI Open Water Diver Certification.
What does the Intro to Scuba package include?
While the Intro to Scuba package was designed for beginners to learn to scuba dive, we also understand that you’re here to enjoy your vacation as well. So, in addition to all of the lessons and transportation to the dive sites surrounding the resorts, you’ll also receive all of the amenities that come with a standard resort vacation, and more. Here are just a few of the benefits you can expect when you stay and dive at Belize Dive Haven:
