PADI Discover Scuba® Diving Experience
See for yourself what scuba diving is all about! Try a Discover Scuba Diving experience. Have you ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater. If you want to find out but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving will let you try scuba to see if you like it. We offer this program, either in a pool or in confined water. You might try it with us while you’re on vacation.
While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world. Having conducted DSD program with us qualifies you to dive with us during your holiday. It is a limited certification, limited to us and this holiday.
The Fun Part
There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to –after all, human beings weren’t designed to do that – but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realize how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge instructors have with the Discover Scuba Diving program is not coaxing participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the program is over. The fun part? It’s all fun!
- Plus, you can get credit! If your Discover Scuba Diving program includes an actual scuba dive in open water, your experience may counts toward PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver certification, putting you a step ahead of the game when you decide to go for it.
What You Learn
You learn the basics you need to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. One thing you’ll learn is that you really can breathe underwater and whether you like doing that or not.
- Find out what it’s like to breathe underwater and learn whether you can be comfortable there
- See some marine life
- Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course when you take the next step
The Scuba Gear You Use
All the equipment you will need is included in your Discover Scuba Diving experience. You’ll use all the basic scuba gear including a mask and fins, a buoyancy compensating jacket (BCD) that also carries your scuba tank, a scuba regulator to breathe from and instrumentation to monitor your air supply. You might also wear a scuba wetsuit and a weight system depending on when you do your Discover Scuba Diving program with us.
