Families coming to Key West and looking to experience the world-famous Key West scuba diving in the coral reef can join us for a full-day diving excursion called the Dive-in-a-Day course
Online PR News – 11-May-2010 – – Families who are headed to Key West this summer and who are looking to experience an adventurous and unforgettable excursion out on the clear blue waters off the coast of Key West can now book the full-day Key West scuba diving excursion called the Dive-in-a-Day. This course is intended as an introduction to Key West scuba diving for people who are not yet scuba certified.
Guests who are as young as 10 years and old and capable of swimming properly can join the expert team of Key West dive instructors for the Dive-in-a-Day instruction course in the morning followed by a 2-tank guided Key West diving trip in the afternoon. The trip includes dive instruction, dive gear, and a 3.5-hour excursion out to two different spots along the coral reef system a couple miles off the coast of Key West Florida.
Groups who reserve spots on the Dive-in-a-Day course (also called the Resort Course) meet with an expert dive instructor in the morning at the pool of one Key West's best resorts. In this pool setting, guests learn the ins and outs of using scuba gear and effectively breathing underwater. The instruction course can take anywhere from 1 hour to 2 hours.
After the pool session and instruction course, divers and instructors take a break and meet back up at the main dive shop at 1PM. By 1:30PM, all divers are on the dive boat and heading out to one of the many excellent spots along the diverse Key West coral reef system. Divers go on two dives in two different areas of the coral reef system, spending about 45 minutes to an hour diving in waters ranging in depth from 30 to 45 feet.
"Anyone who is at least 10 years old and comfortable swimming in deeper waters can go scuba diving," explains one Key West Dive Center's reservations agent, Leslie Abreu. "Many people think they need to get their Open Water certification before going diving, but this is not true. The Resort Course we offer is an excellent, safe and exciting way for non-certified Key West visitors to experience an actual Key West scuba diving excursion."
The Key West Dive Center is the leading center for reservations and information on a variety of Key West diving and Key West snorkeling excursions. In addition to the Dive-in-a-Day course, the center offers morning wreck-and-reef dives for certified divers, snuba diving excursions, and several Key West snorkeling trips including snorkel/dolphin encounters.
