COMMON QUESTIONS

Q: IS IT SAFE?

A: YES, WE HAVE A PERFECT SAFETY RECORD AND LICENSED, INSURED PROFESSIONAL DIVEMASTER/ INSTRUCTOR GUIDES.

Q: WHAT WILL I SEE?

WE ALWAYS SEE MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF FISH, SOMETIMES TURTLES AND EELS, INCREDIBLE UNDERWATER LANDSCAPES. UNDER WATER CAVERNS. IT DEPENDS ON WHERE WE ARE DIVING.

Q: WHERE DO WE DIVE?

WE DIVE IN THE OCEAN OFF THE BEACH WHEN THE CONDITIONS ARE GOOD AND AT THE FRESHWATER SPRINGS/ CAVERNS EVERYDAY. WE BASE OUR DECISIONS REGARDING WHERE TO DIVE ON TIDES, WATER CONDITIONS, LOGISTICS AND THE SWIMMING ABILITY OF THE PARTICIPANTS. FOR NEW DIVERS, WE DIVE IN THE SPRINGS.

Q: WHAT ARE THE FRESHWATER CAVES/ SPRINGS AND ARE THEY AS GOOD AS THE OCEAN? WHY DO YOU DIVE THERE?

THE SPRINGS ARE UNDERWATER LIMESTONE CAVES PRODUCING 30 MILLION+ GALLONS OF WATER PER DAY WELLING UP FROM DEEP WITHIN THE EARTH. THE ECOSYSTEM HERE IS UNIQUELY BEAUTIFUL. THE SPRINGS ARE ACTUALLY BETTER THAN THE OCEAN MOST OF THE TIME BECAUSE THE WATER IS ALWAYS CRYSTAL CLEAR, CALM AND FULL OF FRIENDLY FISH. PEOPLE HAVE A HARD TIME UNDERSTANDING THIS. SOMETIMES THE OCEAN ISN'T CLEAR OR THE WATER IS ROUGH/ RIPCURRENT AND PEOPLE GET CAN REALLY FREAKED OUT AND HAVE A BAD TIME THE SPRINGS ARE ALWAYS A BETTER OPTION FOR NEW DIVERS.

Q: IS THIS A REAL DIVE?

YES. EACH DIVER GETS THEIR OWN SET OF SCUBA GEAR AND PERSONALIZED INSTRUCTION ON HOW TO USE IT. YOU WILL DIVE UNDER THE DIRECT SUPERVISION OF A DIVEMASTER OR SCUBA INSTTRUCTOR .

Q: HOW DEEP DO WE GO? HOW LONG IS THE DIVE?

WE DIVE TO 15 FEET IN THE OCEAN AND 40 FEET IN THE SPRINGS. BUT HONESTLY IT'S NOT ABOUT HOW DEEP YOU GO. DIVES USUALLY LAST ANYWHERE FROM 30 MIN TO 1 HOUR DEPENDING ON HOW HEAVY YOU BREATHE. WE GIVE YOU A STANDARD FULL SIZE TANK, FILLED TO 3000 PSI.

Q: WHAT ABOUT SHARKS?

WE HAVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH SHARKS. SHARK WEEK IS NOT REAL, PERIOD. IF YOU ARE REALLY SCARED JUST DIVE IN THE SPRINGS. NO SHARKS.

Q: WHAT IF ITS RAINING?

WELCOME TO FLORIDA! ITS ALWAYS RAINING DURING THE SUMMER AND YES WE DIVE IN THE RAIN. THE ONLY TIME WE CANCEL IS A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM AND WE MAKE THE CALL.

Q: IM A CERTIFIED DIVER INTRODUCING MY FRIENDS/ FAMILY TO DIVING. WILL I STILL HAVE FUN?

YES! THESE DIVE SITES ARE AWESOME AND EVERYONE ENJOYS THEM. IF YOU ARE A CERTIFIED DIVER BE SURE AND TALK TO US ABOUTNITROX AND THE SCUBA REFRESHER COURSE. THESE COURSES CAN BE DONE AT THE SAME TIME AS THE "TRY SCUBA" DIVES.

Q: ANOTHER COMPANY IS CHEAPER, WHY SHOULD I GO WITH YOU?

YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR .THESE ARE REAL DIVES, NOT JUST SHALLOW SNORKELING ON SCUBA IN 5 FEET OF WATER. READ OUR REVIEWS. AT THE TIME OF THIS WRITING THERE ARE 29 FIVE STAR REVIEWS ON TRIP ADVISOR. THE OTHER GUYS CAN'T SAY THAT. WE TAKE THE TIME TO EDUCATE YOU AND WILL WORK PERSONALLY WORK WITH YOU, EVEN IF YOU ARE NERVOUS OR SCARED. IF YOU WANT YOUR FIRST SCUBA EXPERIENCE TO BE A GOOD ONE, CHOOSE US. WE WANT YOU TO LOVE IT SO MUCH THAT YOU WILL WANT TO BECOME A DIVER FOR LIFE!
