Spotlight comment

Quite a few of us are passionate and qualified divers. Diving is an incredibly fun but also very serious sport. The theory is as important as the practice. But the joy and delight you will experience when you discover the underwater world is like nothing you've ever experienced before.

If you are not sure about learning to dive, whether you will feel comfortable or not, then we recommend you take the Diving Baptism or Discover Scuba Diving on your next visit to Ibiza.

However, if you already love snorkelling and have no problem equalising pressure by pinching your nose shut and blowing when you snorkel down to depths of 2 metres or more (or when flying in an aeroplane), then we recommend booking the PADI Open Water course. This involves several hours of online theory before you even arrive. But believe us, it's worth it!
