WHAT IS SNUBA DIVING?

SNUBA diving is a great introduction to those who want to “try out” diving and are not yet certified for Scuba. 
To do SNUBA diving at Hawk’s Cay, you must be a confident swimmer and kids must be at least 8 years old.

You receive a snorkel mask, fins, a regulator and a vest. Instructors will then give a lesson on breathing, safety and communication including how to use underwater hand signals.

With SNUBA, to learn to breathe through a regulator, you’re connected to a raft by a 20-foot hose rather than wearing a tank. The instructor stays with the student throughout the experience.

Dive Duck Key pride themselves on safety – they boast top of the range equipment and fully trained instructors. Click here to view Hawk’s Cay Diving.
