Diego and team were fantastic to complete two fun dives with. Relaxed, yet very professional and a nice boat. The sites were fantastic, the first with several shipwrecks and the second a mountainous coral garden. I would highly recommend to new, learning and experienced divers.

Hi, the ships are in shallow waters, so I think you could do it if you are certified. The dive company might also be willing to do a baptism or something similar if you are not certified. You will probably only be able to... More

Is there a minimum age for children to be taught and take a dive?
January 7, 2017|
Answer
Response from TortugaDive | Property representative |
Hi! The absolute minimum age is 8 years old for the Bubble maker program. For the Junior Open Water or the Discover SCUBA Diving programs, it would be 10.
