A sea of questions!
In many years of activity, they asked us many questions, each one different from the other.
Answering is always a pleasure! There is no diver who can't wait to tell you about their adventures under the sea, but for you who are reading for the first time, for those who have the desire to start this sport but have never had the courage for lack of answers, we have collected the most common ones, but certainly as many to do, for this we Instructors are always available!
Our advice is to contact an Instructor of the Diving School, it is important to rely on a competent person to get correct answers to your questions and dispel your doubts.
Learning to dive is much easier than you think, even if you are not good at swimming. Every year we patent dozens of people from 12 to the over 65 years!
All aspiring divers before starting the practical part of the course, must present a NON-COMPETITIVE medical certificate.
In the certificate, the doctor will have to specify the type of sport, in this case, "Underwater Activities"
It depends. Our school respects the internationally recognized teaching programs.
Obtaining the first patent is subject to the acquisition of specific theoretical and practical knowledge. The theory can be understood and studied relatively quickly, while the time frame required to acquire the technique in water is subjective and depends on personal predisposition and aquatic skills.
The most dangerous living being at sea is man. Fish, even the biggest ones, they usually get scared and stay away from humans.
Man therefore, in their eyes it does not appear as an interesting prey, rather, sometimes, they are attracted to it, as intrigued.
There are some dangerous marine animals, who do not attack if they do not feel threatened. Usually divers just observe them and take some pictures, respecting the marine environment. When you dive, you are fascinated by the wonder of the underwater world, which is left intact, without therefore causing nuisance to the fish and other living beings that are there. It follows that there will be no dangers arising from the attack on any animal.
The water pressure is felt by our eardrums, but during the first course our instructors will teach you compensation in a few minutes, in order to counterbalance this pressure and no longer have any discomfort, nor pain during the dive.
Starting from 8 years, it is possible for children to try diving (with adequate diving equipment). It is possible to obtain a “diving certificate” starting from 10 years of age. However, even after obtaining certification, children have a limit in relation to the maximum depth to which they can dive, resulting from their age, however, they must always be accompanied by an instructor.
Compared to other sports and outdoor activities, learning to dive is not particularly expensive, compared to some sports, for example: Surfing, Climbing, kayak, golf, water ski, etc.
Learning to dive is of great value when you consider that you do it under the guidance and attention of your ITC Master Instructor.
