Dianemarie,
I know of no Snuba in Belize, I had an operation on another island and the Snuba was some what sucessful with cruise ship passengers. I would think it may work here but the divers that come here take their diving to heart. It is a goog introduction tool to scuba if done right. May be a good idea to follow up on.

Also, I thought Protech said they had snuba available?


A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

This post replaces the one I deleted. I am informed (I am currently out of the country) that we do in fact have "snuba" as well as the "sasy" that I mentioned in a PM to Dianemarie. It's new and I hadn't seen it.

Snuba is a very restrictive form of scuba where you are connected via. a long hose to a compressor floating around on the surface. It doesn't have a good safety record because non-SCUBA trained people have done it without proper instruction because it looks so easy.

I would guarantee that Protech would run everything correctly -what I do not understand is why people would prefer this to Scuba which is IMO easier and allows more freedom underwater.

It might be better for people with dietary problems who do not consider 70+lbs overweight - they consider themselves "cute and cuddly" - because with SNUBA they don't have that heavy tank on their back when they're getting out of the water.

Have you tried it? Curiosity makes me think you had some trial and error in doing this.

It's not for real depth, so it reads. It looks rather easy.

I'd still like to try it and I bet others would too. I don't think dietary reasons are necessarily part of this. Odd you mention things like this confused
It confuses the person asking or those wanting to give it a try should Protech offer to the tourists.
Not everyone is slight built like anorexic appearing people smile
