Introduction into 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 ideal for you. PADI dive shops offer this program either in a pool, off a beach or from a dive boat. You can try scuba diving close to home or while you’re on vacation at a dive destination.

While not a scuba certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

Why it is fun

There is nothing like breathing underwater for the first time. It takes some time to adapt - after all, humans are not made to do this - however after a few minutes of breath-taking wonder, most participants realize how easy diving really is. The biggest challenge instructors face is not encouraging participants to go overboard, but to persuade them to leave when the program has finished. The fun part? Everything is fun!

Experience diving under close supervision. If you're like most people you'll be hooked after your first breath underwater.
