PADI Discover Scuba Diving

PADI Discover Scuba Diving

Have you always wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you want to try scuba diving, but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is for you. We offer this program either off the beach and from our dive boat. While not a scuba certification course, this training program 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.

You learn the basic safety guidelines and skills needed to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. If you make an open water dive, you’ll practice a few more skills in shallow water to prepare for your adventure. Get ready to:

  • Go over the scuba equipment you use to dive and how easy it is to move around underwater with your gear.
  • Find out what it’s like to breathe underwater.
  • Learn key skills that you’ll use during every scuba dive.
  • Have fun swimming around and exploring.
  • Hear about becoming a certified diver through the PADI Open Water Diver course.

The PADI Discover Scuba Diving Program consists of:

  1. Knowledge Development
    In a brief theory lesson our instructors will explain all necessary basics for a safe and fun diving experience.
  2. Confined Water Dive
    You will train some basic skills in shallow water and enjoy a dive to a maximum depth of 6 meters from the beach.
  3. Optional Open Water Dive(s)
    You can extend your Discover Scuba Diving experience with 1 or 2 additional dives from our dive-boat to a maximum depth of 12 meters, under the supervision of your instructor, to explore the Portofino Marine Reserve and the Christ of the Abyss.

The Discover Scuba Diving program is a half-day or full-day experience, depending on how many dives you choose to do.
