Yes, that is normal. Culebra Divers typically goes to Punta Soldado, and conducts the lesson in shallow water where you could stand up -- prior to actually descending and doing the 30 foot dive. The going rule is one atmosphere (30 feet) can be safely ascended (quickly if necessary). No experienced dive shop (that wants to hang on to its license) will take you down more than 30 feet without your having the necessary training.
