A "try SCUBA Dive" (also called discover SCUBA) is perfect for everyone who never dived before and would like to give it a try and get an idea how it feels to be breathing under water and to swim around with fish. In a Discover SCUBA program the dive instructor explains the most important bit of diving theory first, then go into shallow water (get used to the breathing under water and practice some diving skills) and once you feel comfortable there, then go for one easy open water dive to experience to swim around with fish.  So you can get step-by-step a beautiful dive experience. This program takes around 3 hours and (it can be even enjoyed by people who don't know how to swim).

Snorkeling at Dive Cabarete was awesome! Our dive master was amazing - he made us all feel really comfortable, and made sure we saw the most amazing fish and coral. Great experience! I would definitely recommend it.

The crew at Dive Cabarete were amazing! They were very accommodating of our complicated schedule and variety of experience levels. They were conscientious and safe. I was most impressed with their “maintenance” of the reef by removing trash that had been thrown overboard by others....More
