To be honest, I was scared to do this. I have messed up ears so I knew I could not Scuba, but my hubby thought I should be able to Snuba since you only go down 20 feet max.
We had a loooong horrible bus ride from La Toc to the Grande - but that had nothing to do with the Snuba people. There just aren't any straight roads in St. Lucia.
When we got there they had us fill out forms and stuff. One of the guides talked to me about my ears and advised me on what to do. Then we got our masks and flippers and some instruction. This seemed to take for ever to me, but my hubby said it wasn't that long.
We got in the water and hooked up to our air tanks. I was kind of freaking out a bit so it took me some time to get my breathing under control and to get used to the equipment. But once I was calm, it was great.
We explored the bottom of the ocean in groups of four with a guide. She was great about pointing things out to us and showing us where certain creatures hide. Make sure you have an underwater camera with you! And 27 photo's was not enough! I ran out before finding the sea horse. :( I enjoyed exploring so much that I did not follow the advise given to me about my ears, so I was a bit uncomfortable for a day or so after - but that s my own fault. I knew not to go deeper, but did anyway. We were only in the water for about 20 minutes, but for me that was enough. My ears hurt and I was tired of breathing canned air.
BTW, they have underwater camera's for sale, and they are cheaper then they were in the gift shop.
