A typical day at the El Coral Reef Dive Center
09.00 am – Breakfast at the Blue Rock Resort. Chose from a wide variety of different food and drinks! We suggest you to bring some food on the boat in case you’re planning to do three dives. Most of our divers usually bring a club-sandwich or other types of snacks! We always provide both drinking water and coffee.
09.45 am – Check all dive gear before boarding the boat. We will provide whatever gear you don’t have, wetsuit, mask, booties, fins, weights, BCD and underwater camera if requested.
10.00 am – The boat leaves heading towards the days first dive site. This trip usually takes about 10-15 minutes depending on where in the bay we will be diving. Most dive sites are pretty near to the Dive Center. Once on the boat we will prepare your gear and make a last check before reaching the site. Tanks are fitted and air pressure checked.
11.00 am – First dive!
11.45 am – Surface! A dive usually takes between 30-60 minutes depending on depth etc. Once back on the boat we would start moving towards the second dive site. The surface interval is normally about 1 hour (depending on the type of dive conducted). Great for a chat with other divers, coffee and a snack!
01.00 pm – Second dive!
01.45 pm – Surface! This time you’re probably a bit hungry. Use the time before the next dive to finish your lunch.
03:00 pm – Third dive, last dive for the day!
03.45 pm – Back on the surface!
04.30 pm – Back at the dive center. Plenty of time for a shower and a bit of rest before dinner!
