When you discover scuba diving with PADI, you discover excitement and adventure, freedom and serenity. Nothing compares to the "weightless" exhilarating thrill of breathing and swimming underwater. Only a diver knows that feeling!
The PADI Discover Scuba Diving programme lets you experience the wonder of diving under the supervision of a PADI Instructor in ideal conditions, such as those found at a resort. During your adventure, you'll master some basic concepts, safety guidelines and scuba skills, either in a pool or in shallow and confined sea water, before heading off on an open water dive. You’ll likely use a full set of scuba gear, including a mask, snorkel, fins, wetsuit, regulator, buoyancy control device (BCD), dive gauges and a tank. Your open water dive takes you as deep as 12 metres under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional.
Discover Scuba Diving is a great experience if you’re not quite ready to take a full certification course, and it’s also a great way to get a head start on the PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver certification. That's because the skills you complete during this adventure, such as mask clearing, regulator recovery and sharing air, may credit these certification levels, so you can continue where you left off.
To enrol in the PADI Discover Scuba Diving programme, you must be at least 10 years old. No prior experience of scuba diving or swimming ability is necessary.
