Courses: Discover Scuba Diving

DISCOVER SCUBA DIVING

Minimal age requested: 10 years
Maximum deep: 8 mt
Course duration: 1 day

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. Most PADI dive shops offer a version of this program, either in a pool or other body of water. You might try it close to home or 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. 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! All the equipment you will need is typically included in a Discover Scuba Diving experience. You'll use all the basic scuba gear including a mask , snorkel and fins, a buoyancy compensating jacket that also carries your scuba tank, a scuba regulator to breathe from and instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply. You might also wear a scuba wetsuit or a weight system depending on where you do your Discover Scuba Diving program.

Ask the dive shop where you plan to take your Discover Scuba Diving program about the scuba equipment you'll use.
