Scuba diving initiation for stag dos

Now that organising different and non-traditional stag dos is the trend, adventure sports have become part of many plans. When someone announces they’re getting married, daring ideas start to emerge for that final party. One of the most innovative options in this regard, among the list of water activities for stag dos, is scuba diving initiation. Don’t know what it is? No problem, that’s why we’re here.

What is a scuba diving initiation?

A scuba diving initiation is a first dive underwater. The initial step to becoming an amateur diver. It can be done in a swimming pool, as long as there’s enough depth, although the ideal is to do it in the open sea, as a complement to the boat parties or in activities near the beach, as you can also initiate by entering from there, walking along the seabed.
Before diving in, you receive instructions on how to use the oxygen tank, positioning the suit, etc. Then you dive and you may even get a certificate recalling the day you dived for the first time.

If you’ve never tried this sport, a stag do can be a perfect excuse to give it a go.

Where and how to organise it

It’s not complicated to organise a scuba diving initiation. Anywhere that organises adventure activities for stag dos will surely be able to handle it. Just ask for this option and you’ll see they have everything ready for your dive.
You don’t need to live in a beach area to organise a scuba diving initiation for a stag do. Many diving clubs train in swimming pools in large cities, sports centres, lakes and rivers. You just need to ensure there is someone experienced behind you to guide you in each case.

Evidently, cities with access to the sea have even more possibilities to organise this activity. Some stag dos in Barcelona are starting to ask if it’s possible to organise a scuba diving initiation for the party.

Also for couples and mixed stag dos

If your friend is the classic clingy one who wants both guys and girls to come to the stag do, a scuba diving initiation can be a fantastic idea, because they can even jump into the water together and enjoy this exciting activity. It’s not uncommon, especially because many honeymoons include diving trips to visit reefs, particularly if you go to the Caribbean. This way the couple has some experience and might even enjoy the dive more.
If you like water and adventure, instead of just settling for booking kayaks for stag dos to traverse the sea, take it a step further and seize the opportunity to explore the world of diving. Surely more than one asks to repeat, although if they have to get married they might think twice. Don’t tell them they can do it without a stag do, let’s see what they do…
