"The best way to observe a fish is to become a fish."

SCUBA diving is sensual. To breathe underwater is one of the most fascinating and peculiar sensations imaginable. Breathing becomes a rhythmic melody of inhalations and exhalations. The cracks and pops of fish and crustaceans harmonize with the rhythmic chiming of the bubbles as you exhale. Soon, lungs act as bellows, controlling your buoyancy as you achieve weightlessness. And, as in your dreams, you are flying. Combine these otherworldly stimuli and you surrender completely to the sanctuary of the underwater world.

"Dive not to escape life, but for life not to escape us"

  • Team building workshops drive individuals from corporates to switch gears. It facilitates individuals to consider other peoples perspectives and think out of the box. We at West Coast will help you to do just that but with a twist- Underwater!
  • Scuba Diving is also open to children. Kids 8 years and upwards can experience scuba diving but are limited to depth and location. Their adventure can begin at the XLR8 pool. We have designed Bubble Adventures so that children can experience scuba diving at an early age. Our program not only introduces them to breathing under water, but provides them with a fun learning experience where they learn about the aquatic life in the ocean.
