Discover Scuba Diving

PADI Discover Scuba Diver Course.

It's not unusual to feel awestruck while watching a clip of a diver breathing under water. But did you know how easy it is to actually become that diver? You can learn how to breathe under water and explore a part of this world that most only get to see on television.

That's not to say that scuba diving doesn't take skill. It certainly does. But in this course, you can learn basics that will lay a solid foundation for any underwater path you decide to follow; figuratively speaking, of course. If your Discover Scuba Diving program includes an actual scuba dive in open water, and many do, your experience may count toward a PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver certification later on, should you decide to take that path.

The Discover Scuba Diving experience is not an actual certification program, but you will learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick-and-easy introduction to exploring the underwater world.

Diving is FUN!

There's really nothing like the experience of breathing underwater for the first time. It's not something you can put in words. You have to feel it for yourself. As you can imagine, it does take some getting used to – after all, it's not what we were designed for – but once you get into the swing of it, there's no turning back. You're hooked.

Instructors don't have nearly as much trouble coaxing new divers into the water as they have coaxing them out!
