My husband I have enjoyed SCUBA diving in the past and we are both certified - we decided to try the SNUBA while in Key West, just for the fun of it. It was fun, but very limiting. If you have been SCUBA certified, I would suggest that you stick with SCUBA diving. SNUBA is a terrific way for people to decide if they really are interested in seeking certification in SCUBA. What I found while SNUBA diving was that the beginner divers were so distracted with trying to apply what they had learned to dive, often they would tangle themselves up in my air hose - dragging me off my course of diving, this happened several times with another couple that we dived with on our team.
In addition, you are limited only the length of your air hose, which is about 20 feet. They tend to dive in only about 20 feet of water so that works out okay, but you are very limited to the length of the hose, and the distance that the host divers will take you.
It is only about a 30 minute dive, so it is a very short reef dive which doesn't leave much exploring time.
For the novice and inquiring type of diver - I would say it is definitely worth the time and money. But, for those that really want to explore and enjoy the deep sea, stick to you SCUBA diving.
