Those who want to try diving for the first time can take part in the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program, which is an introduction to diving conducted by a professional instructor. The experience is carried out during the morning and afternoon excursions. It includes a theoretical lesson, and an acclimatization dive in protected shallow waters, starting from the beach. The experience begins with carrying out the basic exercises necessary to become familiar with the equipment and the underwater environment and ends with an exploration of the surrounding seabed. At the end of the test, participants have the opportunity to integrate the program with a second dive always guided by the same instructor: a real dive to the maximum depth of 12 meters to visit the flora and fauna submerged in the protected marine area of Punta Bell
