Learning to dive on the Island

Learning to dive in Ibiza might seem strange as the Island is known as the party Island and of course drinking the night before and then trying to dive is very dangerous. Ibiza is also known as one of the best chill-out islands in Europe and that brings some good spirit to anybody who wants to learn. Ibiza also has something that makes learning to scuba dive even more attractive and that is the warm clear blue waters and the excellent sea conditions during the summer months, which are from May to September. So warm waters and excellent conditions along with the holiday experience to keep you in a relaxed mood. Learning to scuba dive starts with a good instructor who introduces you to the world and rules of scuba diving, and most importantly learning how to breathe underwater and doing all this safely. The basics behind an instructor are for him/her to teach you the working physics and physiology of diving and also the knowledge of any unexpected situations that could possibly happen underwater. All the dive instructors are PADI certified and professional. Some of the things that you will learn are buoyancy skills to be comfortable with descents and ascents and breathing underwater. Keeping warm underwater, improving your swimming skills and buddy diving. You will also be taught about the diving environment and the aquatic life that you may come across. More training comes with the introduction to boat diving.

Where to learn scuba diving

Ibiza has plenty of great dive centers all over the Island that all follow PADI methods of training. Punta Dive, Sea Horse Diving, Arenal Diving Ibiza and Ibiza Diving College are some of the biggest on the Island. Arenal Diving are a 5 star dive center based in San Antonio who work very close with Ibiza Diving College.Ibiza diving college is the place to start your dive lessons, they have an experienced team of divers and they have a massive amount of experience in teaching new people to scuba dive.

Most resorts have a dive centre and depending where you stay on the Island and what kind of diving sites you want to see is your choice.

What part of the Island should you stay?

If you are coming to Ibiza for holiday then you might want to be around the San Antonio area either main San Antonio or San Antonio Bay which is further around the coast from the main town of San Antonio. San Antonio is the largest resort of the Island and has been popular throughout the past three decades for tourism. San Antonio has something for everyone, which also includes some of the hot spots for watching the sunset in places like Café Del Mar, Mamba and Khumharas café. San Antonio is also the home of Ibiza Rocks Hotel among many more popular hotels. The reason we say stay in this area it's because San Antonio is within ten minutes boat ride from some of the best dive spots on Ibiza.
