    What to Expect
    All you need is to want to dive and we will help with the rest, we head out to Laughing Bird Caye here we discuss with the aid of a flip chart the basics and the theory of diving, then we practice some basic under water skills in shallow water so you can get a feel for it.  Once your performance is up to standard and you are comfortable, you will go on a shallow dive around some coral patches. Then take a break for lunch and beach break and a bit of relaxation before heading out to do a second deeper dive at a max depth of 40 feet (12 meters).

    We had never scuba dived before. We booked this before we came, and it was worth every penny. Conrad arranged the best day! Kenroy was our boat driver and Nedia took us from panicky morons to diving 40 feet. She is the BEST teacher. Conrad’s cooking for lunch was awesome. It
