Your instructor will first explain a few key concepts about diving safety. You'll use standard scuba diving equipment. Your instructor will help you gear up and go over the equipment with you so you'll know what is what. You will then take your first breaths underwater and swim around under the instructor's watchful eye.
We usually run our introductory programs in a swimming pool. The pool we use is Chi Fu Fa Yuen swimming pool in Pok Fu Lam, Hong Kong island. It is a heated indoor pool that offers a shallow part for easy gearing up and your first breaths underwater.
If you prefer a half a day or so outdoors, there are a few dive sites where the program can be run safely in an open water setting. These are usually shore dives from a beach.
When and How long?
The program takes about two (2) hours when run in the swimming pool and can be run in the evenings after work hours. If day time works better for you we can certainly arrange.
