Scuba Diving in Placencia Belize
Our Scuba departures are all Private Departures, but very affordable.
What better way to Scuba than on a private boat with your own guide, and a captain with diving skills- catered especially for you? Are you a novice wanting to hone your skills? We will instruct you while showing you the sights. Maybe you're experienced but don't want to be held back by large dive groups? We can assist you. Want to dive deeper? We can do that as well. Do you want to learn to dive but feel intimidated to be on a dive boat or in a class with others? We can help with that also. Whatever your pleasure in diving is, we can accommodate it.
No Certification Diving
Quite a few people want to experience Scuba Diving but don't want to be certified. Some travelers to Placencia don't have extra time, and some simply won't have the use for it in the future. Whatever the reason, we can assist you in enjoying the underwater world with Scuba. The procedures include a short introduction to scuba diving, a short Q&A, some quick lessons in shallow water and "VIOLA"- you're Scuba diving down to 40 feet led by your PADI Dive Instructor. Nice and easy! Let's enjoy the undersea world at your pace- no hassle, no worries. After the first day, you can join all the diving trips until your vacation ends. We usually do 2 dives per day for this type of expedition. Our first day is at Laughing Bird Caye, which is designed especially for these types of activities. The water is crystal clear- perfect for practicing, discovering colorful corals and swimming with a large variety of fishes and other sea creatures.
Certified Scuba Diving
Whether you're a newbie or have a lot of experience, you may want to get off the beaten path and enjoy diving on your own instead of following a big dive group. Many people want to practice their skills and learn new ones, some want to dive deeper and some longer. Whatever your pleasure, Placencia Wildside Adventures can accommodate you (within PADI limits of course). Choose One, two or three dives for the day. Begin early and do a dawn dive, or start late and do a dusk or night dive. We're always up for it. Just let us know!
Do you want to be a certified Scuba Diver? We would like to offer you: your own dive boat, a captain, and a dive instructor. Over the years of teaching our friends, we noticed that some people are intimidated when learning to dive along with certified divers. Without hesitating, we decided to offer private lessons for almost the same price. You can now learn to dive in your own atmosphere, at your own comfort. Placencia Wildside Adventures offer Open Water Certification, Advanced Open Water, Rescue Diver and Divemaster Certifications. All done at your own pace with no hassle or headache. Let us know what you need!
Certified? Would you like to do something different while helping the reef? Let’s go hunt lionfish! They are an invasive, aggressive species of fish that was accidentally set loose in the Caribbean. They breed fast and feed voraciously, and we need to control their population. Choose one, two or three dives for the day, head out to some of the less traffic dive sites and hunt! Let's see if we can beat the record for "the most catch of the day". Help the reef while enjoying a great dive. Our dive guides will show you how to use our spears, and take the fishes off so you won't have to worry about getting poked with the spines, which are very painful. All you gotta do is spear em!!!
