1. How soon can I board a flight after a dive?
After a dive, you can only board a flight after 24 hours.
2. What does this expedition entails?
Before you do scuba diving in the sea, you will be trained by experts for an hour. It will start with a short briefing (theory) related to diving, after which you will be taken for a swim in a pool for you to familiarise with the conditions you will find underwater. Thereafter, lessons on basic skills to do this activity will be imparted. You will also get some time to get used to the diving gear.
After training, you will get the chance to scuba dive for the first time in your life. This will be quite an experience as salty seawater will lash your tongue while your eyes will feast on the beauty of marine plants and animals. During the expedition, you have nothing to worry about as an experienced diver will be supervising you. The timings of the scuba dive session are from 7.30 am to 3 pm.
