What is all excitement all about?
We think you got here because you heard about the greatness of the easy diving experience that is SNUBA and you need a little more information. So let us inform you what the fuzz is all about.
What does SNUBA mean exactly?
SNUBA is a professionally guided, shallow water diving program available to snorkelers and novice divers of all ages – and it requires no formal training or certifications. The activity is safe, easy and an appealing introduction to the underwater world. It is fun and entertaining; but this sparks wonderment in guests, increasing marine awareness and environmental conservancy.
How long has it been around?
In 1988 the founders of SNUBA International, INC. developed a unique dive system aimed to bridge the gap between SNorkeling and scUBA diving- SNUBA. As an acronym SNUBA means “Surface Nexus Underwater Breathing Apparatus”. Nexus is defined as “linked or connected to”. The diving system employs the use of an inflatable raft on the surface that links the divers below to the air supply above.
What is the goal of SNUBA?
The primary goal of SNUBA International is to provide a safe, easy and appealing activity to the snorkeler and novice diver. The tagline ” Go beyond snorkeling” best describes the promise and opportunity of the easy diving that is SNUBA. The equipment and program allow guests to explore underwater using a 20ft airline. We offer participants a chance to have an underwater adventure with three dimensional mobility in a near-zero gravity environment. This is the ultimate ” soft adventure” allowing guests to conveniently get close to nature and a rewarding, memorable experience, while feeling safe and secure.
What makes this activity so great?
There are a couple of reasons this particular diving system beats all other underwater activities when it comes to safety. Before explaining why this is the case, let us tell you that in over 30 years of operation, there has been no single accident. That is an incredible record! Why is SNUBA so safe? We think the main two reasons are:
Standard, your group is no bigger than 4 persons per raft and guide. Often even less. You are all connected to that raft with 20ft airlines. This obviously results in the fact that it is impossible to get separated from the other divers. As a result, nobody has ever gotten left behind. And although scuba diving is also considered pretty safe. One simply cannot say that about regular Scuba Diving.
You are diving to a maximum of 20ft/6m. This is, compared to scuba diving, reasonably shallow. Therefore you do not really have to worry about scary things like decompression sickness (the bends), even if you come up a little too fast. As long as you just breath normally, you’ll be under water for close to 30 minutes easily and you’re going to be safe at all times.
