What You Can Expect

Paraty Scuba Diving Beginner's Course

Learn to scuba dive in Paraty!

Following pickup at your hotel in Paraty, transfer to the dive center to meet your professional PADI-certified instructor and small group of other students. No prior certification or experience is necessary to participate in this activity. 

Go through a fun and easy safety course on dry land. Learn scuba diving techniques and theory, as well as underwater communication. Once you feel comfortable with the basics of diving and have gotten to know your equipment, it's time for your first open water dive. Paraty is one of Brazil's top dive destinations and is known for its rich marine life and high underwater visibility. The warm, clear waters make it a great place for a beginner dive. 

Experience a 30-minute dive on the nearby reefs, descending to 10-20 feet (3-6 meters). Watch as your instructor-guide points out tropical fish, colorful sea urchins, sea cucumbers and maybe even an octopus. Use the time to get comfortable in the water and practice some of your newfound skills.

Return to shore, where you'll transfer back to your Paraty hotel for drop-off.
