Scuba Diving at Aqualand

Scuba Diving

Explore the underwater world with Southern Cross Scuba. This short introduction to SCUBA diving is designed for people who have never tried this exiting and fulfilling sport.

The program starts at the swimming pool with an informative and concise briefing with a qualified and experienced Instructor, after which you will take your first breaths underwater! Your pool training session will last about 45 minutes during which time you will be taught the basic skills of SCUBA diving, as well as gain confidence, essential to your first real dive in the Indian Ocean.

Shortly afterwards you will board one of our diving boats and head out to explore the shallow and safe waters of our house reef at Kinondo. Diving as a buddy team, your instructor will guide you through coral gardens and shoals of fish, pointing out highlights and marine life as you experience your first real SCUBA dive in the Indian Ocean. The dive can last up to 1 hour but this will vary according to individual breathing rates; after surfacing from your first dive you will re-join your captain and dive boat who will return you to the gleaming white sands of Kinondo beach. A thrilling MUST... for anyone with an urge to explore the underwater wonders of the Indian Ocean.

The SCUBA diving in this area is fantastic; this is no news to the repeat guests diving at AQUALAND, who consistently experience top quality diving, which includes regular sightings of large pelagic species (Whale Shark, Dolphin & Manta Rays) that frequent this area. Aqualand has recently purchased special, KIDS SCUBA equipment, these tiny sets are fantastic fun and can be used by kids as young as seven years old. As well as the special kids programs, SCUBA diving is organized on a daily basis, with beginner PADI & SSI courses running throughout the week. Also on offer is Aqualand's Robinson Trip, designed to "take people away from people", the tour has been running at Pinewood Village now for the last five years. The Robinson Trip provides visitors with a chance to snorkel and dive some of the nicest areas of the South Coast including Chale Island and the Kaya Kinondo reserve, whilst lunch is prepared for them "Robinson" style at a secluded sandy bay, by their own chef, in the heart of the Kinondo Kaya.

Go Snorkelling

This 2 hour Seafari will bring you to the fantastic white sandbank off the main reef which lies exposed during the low tide. After a 20min cruise on one of our specialized boats you will arrive in calm and clear waters. An abundance of tropical fish and coral make this the ideal location for kids and adults alike to explore the underwater world. An experienced guide will both instruct and lead your snorkeling tour, whilst pointing out highlights of the underwater world and explaining the importance of environmental conservation. After spending around 1 and a half hours on this pristine reef your Captain and guide will return you to base for a cool fresh shower and a dip in the pool! A great value tour for the whole family.
