Advices
  • It is necessary to have previous experience and a diving license that credits this experience (dive LOG, PADI titles, FEDAS …).
  • It is highly recomended that if you have special sensitivity to sea sickness, take pills for sea sickness at least half an hour before boarding. The “Jacaré Uno” is a very stable and comfortable boat but there are people with high sensitivity. Do not let anything spoil your experience.
  • Sun protection is highly recommended.
