SNUBA – AN UNDERWATER ADVENTURE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
Snuba is a step between snorkeling and scuba diving. No dive license or certification is required to participate in Snuba. The minimum age for Snuba is 5 years old. It’s a fun and safe way to experience breathing underwater without having to wear all the equipment.
This tour has a standard scuba diving air tank that is placed in a small, floating raft. Attached to the air tank is a 20 feet pressurized air-hose. At the end of the air-hose is a regulator, or a mouth piece that supplies the air. The client is connected to the regulator with a chest harness, which is what prevents the diver from going deeper than the maximum depth of 20 feet or 6 meters. Basically, you are scuba diving on a leash. The average time underwater varies from 30-50 minutes per Snuba submersion.
This amount of time is determined by the amount of air used by the participant. As this varies from person to person, it is not possible to give an exact time. Two people generally share one air tank, and if both participants use slow, deep breathes, this will allow for a longer time underwater than when using quick or rapid breaths.
We offer Snuba tours everyday and we leave at 7:00am from Tamarindo marina and take you on a 20 minute boat drive to Flamingo where Snuba begins.
