The dives and test dives can be booked flexibly on board. The only thing we need to know in advance are your wishes when it comes to diving!
On request, we offer test dives, so you can find out if diving is interesting and attractive for you. The diving instructor explains the most important things about diving in theory and practice and then he accompanies you alone or in small groups into the shallow water on an exploratory tour.
Our individual test dive has been relaxing, individual, comfortable and popular for many years. The first dive remains an unforgettable experience. The feeling of being weightless in the infinite vastness of the sea, enjoying the meditative peace under water, the play of light and actively experiencing the colors of the underwater world remain unforgettable adventures. Curious now? Then give it a try on board with us. Pure fascination and an incredible event in terms of body awareness and experience.

Diving is done with complete diving equipment. You will be supervised by one of our experienced diving instructors above and under water. He will explain the basic techniques and give you an introduction to the equipment and the training system. Afterwards you will dive for half an hour under the direct, personal supervision of the diving instructor. He will do some very simple basic exercises with you and together you will enjoy the underwater world.
