"Try scuba diving" il tuo Battesimo del mare ad Acitrezza
Inizieremo la nostra fantastica esperienza con le presentazioni e la consegna delle attrezzature SCUBA. un breve ma dettagliato briefing sulle attrezzature e su cosa faremo sott'acqua ti toglierà ogni dubbio, una volta giunti sul luogo d'immersione da terra o in barca (DIPENDE DALLE CONDIZIONI METEO E DALLA ORGANIZAZIONE DELLA GIORNATA) ripasseremo cosa fare, non appena TU ti sentirai pronto e a tuo aggio inizieremo l'avventura (anche per mano se lo vorrai) con un istruttore a te personalmente dedicato e con tutta la calma che ci vuole, una volta entrerai in acqua proverai a fare i primi respiri in superficie, a pinneggiare e poi, pian piano scenderemo a pochissimi centimetri, poi a qualche metro, tranquillo, sarai sempre affiancato alla tua guida esperta, che ti darà sicurezza e ti farà ammirare gli splendidi fondali lavici, la flora e fauna che li caratterizzano. La sensazione di poter respirare tranquillamente sott'acqua ti darà sicurezze e spensieratezza e ti farà rilassare a tal punto di non voler più tornare in superficie, e come disse JACQUE COUSTEAU "Dopo l'istante magico in cui i miei occhi si sono aperti nel mare, non mi è stato più possibile vedere, pensare, vivere come prima." Durante l'immersione (se lo vorrai e se sarà possibile) ti saranno scattate delle foto che ti saranno consegnate gratuitamente a fine giornata.
