Excursions and Classes
On our boat, Mariel, we have the independence to take you to the most remote locations or reefs for scuba diving. And although we could take more scuba divers, we take only SMALL groups, so we can provide you with the maximum comfort and personal attention on every trip.

We depart every morning at 10:30 am from the marina. Usually we are done diving around 3:30 pm, but we are not in a hurry! We do believe in “Island Time”! Our bottom times are only limited by your air consumption and the dive tables or your dive computer.

DISCOVER SCUBA DIVING COURSE (aka the RESORT COURSE)
Designed for people who have never scuba dived before. A must-do in Culebra! This is an introductory course that takes half a day. Easy and safe. No certification involved.

Includes:

  • a 45 min. class and a scuba dive to 40 feet maximum.

This dive counts money wise and time wise for the full certification course. You want to get certified after the resort? Just pay the balance and continue!

Many ask if certain certain medical conditions disqualify you from diving? Only very few.  So long as you are in good cardiovascular and respiratory health, and not on any drugs that might cause complications under water, getting a physician’s approval to dive is generally easy.  And, if you can honestly answer "No" to all of the questions on the Medical History form, you won’t even have to get your doctor’s okay.

We do have an additional requirement.
 YOU MUST BE COMFORTABLE IN  WATER OVER YOUR HEAD AND BE ABLE TO SWIM AND SNORKEL in order to participate.
