Discover Scuba Diving

Your scuba instructor will spend a little time with you to explain the basic principles of scuba diving and give you an overview of your scuba equipment which is supplied by us. Once you feel comfortable, your instructor will take you to confined water to help you learn basic scuba skills. Then, if you like, you can go with your instructor for a short discovery dive. The skills you learn during your Discover Scuba Diving experience may be credited toward the full PADI Open Water Diver certification.
