How deep will I go at initially?
Usually, first time divers go from about 12 feet of sea water to 30 feet. In real time analogy, a one to three story building. The beauty of Scuba Diving in South Florida is the diverse marine life from very shallow to the more intermediate depths for experienced recreational divers. Sometimes, it depends on the person themselves as far as their experience in and around the ocean and skill level of swimming in the water.
How long does a tank of air last?
Generally a tank of air, in a shallow water dive consisting of no more than 15 to 30 feet of sea water can last up to 60 minutes. Much depends on the person using the tank and if they are swimming slowly or covering a lot of territory. Just like different cars use different amounts of gas and depending on speed, will consume variable amounts depending on conditions.
How old do I have to be to dive?
The minimum age to participate in Snorkeling is 4 years old. The minimum age to scuba dive is 10 years old. (8 and 9 year old kids can do scuba in pool only, no ocean)
Children must be 10 years old to become scuba certified or just taking the introductory Scuba Diving course. There is no maximum age limit and it has been known that many people in their 80's continue to dive, conservatively. Every participant must sign a medical release waiver acknowledging any and all medical conditions.
