There are 2 ways to do it! Via the tourist guide, they will give first a short lesson in the pool of the Hotel. Afterwards you get to know the tricks in half a day and you will do 1 or 2 dives into the deep for real! I did not do it, as my ears still hurt from the plain trip.
2) You must hire a local guy which brings you to the best and most beautiful places there are!
I heard both people who did one and told me it was fantastic, National Graphic Channel for real!
Equipment: None, they will provide you
While you are on the catamaran trip, they will stop to let people see the underwater world of Isla Margarita. I must confess it is more or less a tourist trap, as the spot they stopped (in 2002) there was not much to see. Anyway, I heard that there are other ways to scuba dive as well. You must hire a local guy which brings you to the best and most beautiful places there are! The main goal of that catamaran is to chill on the boat and beach…
Equipment: None, they have it on the boot
You will sail all day, and making a break at noon while on a small island. They stop for a hour of scuba diving as well in the middle of the trip mean wile keep your eyes open for dolphins and wails!
Equipment: Sea leggs, sun oil and towl
There are few places where you can jet ski. You can ask that tourist guy in your hotel to know the best spots. I did my run during a sealing trip. We paused on a small island and you could hire your jet ski here. The sea was very calm, so perfect for some fast runs :-)
They got horses for every one. I never rode a horse, so they gave me one of these old auto-pilot horse, hehe, which was already cool for me but they got horses that makes you imitate western movies riding in desert places. Somewhere in the middle the trip the group will split into 2 parts, with those who can and cannot ride horses, so everyone gets there fun! They who can ride horses will do the beach in full gallop and stuff… I was glad I did not felt off my horse! Yeeha!
Equipment: Order your horse riding with one of the Travel agents that will be available at your hotel.
