Discover Scuba Diving

The first step into SCUBA. Learn the basics in the pool, then take an optional open water dive at a real dive site.

Who should try this?

Ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, but want to try using SCUBA, Discover Scuba Diving is for you. We offer a DSD in a pool, with a further option of diving on a real dive site. You can come to us for your pool session, or if you have your own pool, we can come to you! Discover Scuba Diving is a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

 

To sign up for a PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience, you must be at least 10 years old. No prior experience with scuba diving is necessary, but you need to be in reasonable physical health.

 

What's involved?

 

  • You learn the basic safety guidelines and skills needed to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. If you choose to make the open water dive, you’ll practice a few more skills in shallow water to prepare for your adventure.
  • Find out about the scuba equipment you use to dive and how easy it is to move around underwater with your gear.
  • Feel what it’s like to breathe underwater.
  • Learn key skills that you’ll use during every scuba dive.
  • Have fun swimming around and exploring.
