A quick and easy introduction into what it takes to explore the underwater world. Although this is not a scuba certification course, you'll learn all the steps it takes to be a PADI certified diver.
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. Learn the basics of scuba close to home in a safe and fun environment.
This course is the first module of the five in the Open Water course. You'll spend a day with one of our instructors, going over scuba principles in the classroom, and learning basic skills in the pool. You'll have lots of time to swim around and find out what it's like to breathe underwater.
You can easily upgrade to the Open Water Course after completing your Discover Scuba Diving course, and we will credit you $50 toward the course price!
