I agree with dandj. Try the resort course. All the dive folks are awesome. Something like that is bulky and very likely to destroy the coral when an unwitting "driver" bumps into it. If you are freaked out about the dive gear, I would definitely suggest the SNUBA before the scuba-doo. However, nothing compares with the freedom of actual SCUBA...hubby and I got certified in Negril...best money we ever spent!
