Take a Key West SNUBA diving trip to see the beauty that lies beyond the beach. SNUBA lets you go underwater to fully experience the wonder of tropical coral and colorful fish in the safest and easiest way possible. Amazing SNUBA gear makes it easy to breathe underwater with no need for heavy, restrictive SCUBA diving equipment. Training is quick and easy with our professional instructors, and no dive certification is required!

Key West is a scenic tropical paradise, with blue skies, turquoise water, exotic foliage, and an interesting urban and human landscape to catch the eye at every turn. But don’t overlook the fact that Key West is a tiny island surrounded by a lot of water, with far more scenery below the surface than above. Key West SNUBA diving makes it easy to take advantage of this fact by letting almost anyone go below the surface on a sightseeing tour of America’s only tropical coral seascape. SNUBA is simple to learn, no prior diving or snorkeling experience is required, and with kids as young as 8 years old welcome, a Key West SNUBA diving tour is the perfect family adventure.

SNUBA is a hybrid of snorkeling and SCUBA diving. While snorkeling mainly involves floating face down on the surface, breathing through the snorkel and viewing the sights below through a dive mask, SNUBA gear lets the underwater explorer actually descend and remain a few feet beneath the surface for an exciting, close-up view of the marine environment. As with SCUBA diving, a dive mask and fins are worn, while a minimal set of soft weights provides the neutral buoyancy needed to easily dive and move underwater. A small surface raft supports a scuba tank, air is delivered to the SNUBA diver through a long hose attached to a lightweight harness, and breaths are taken through a regulator that is held in the mouth. The hose acts as a safety line to control depth, and the surface raft has grab lines around it should the diver want to go topside for a rest.

Far less complicated and gear-intense than SCUBA, the SNUBA experience is great for those who would like to try breathing underwater, or who are considering taking SCUBA certification courses. A SNUBA trip includes the orientation and simple training needed to let you comfortably descend and breathe underwater. You will learn how to compensate for pressure in the ears and get familiar with using a dive mask at depth. After 15-20 minutes of instruction during the sail out to the dive site, your professionally trained SNUBA guide will personally take you on an underwater tour of the beautiful marine environment. It takes no time at all to be gliding effortlessly along under the surface, exploring incredible coral formations and watching schools of tropical fish with your guide close at hand.
