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. Here at OCEANADDICTS we can get you started. Our experienced instructors will look after you all the way. When you arrive on board Embarr, we will get you fitted with a dive suit and organize your equipment. Your instructor will go through the equipment with you and show you how to use it. They will also go through some safety procedures and some basic skills you will need to dive safely, like how to equalize you ears for example. You will learn basic hand signals so you can communicate with your instructor while underwater.
When you are ready you will travel to the dive site by RIB (speed boat) where your instructor will help you into your equipment and take you for your dive.
It feels strange at first but relax you are in the safe hands of experienced instructors who will be looking after your safety at all times. They will also ensure that you will enjoy your experience, pointing out marine life and helping you with your bouyancy control. They will be at your side at all times.
Who knows after that first breath underwater you might find that you are hooked on Scuba Diving, and it has become your new passion. So get in touch to dive right in.
There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realise how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge for OCEANADDICTS is coaxing Discover Scuba Diving participants out of the water when the program is over. The fun part? It's all fun! Plus, you can get credit! If your Discover Scuba Diving program includes an actual scuba dive in open water, your experience may count toward PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver certification, putting you a step ahead of the game when you decide to go for it.
You learn the basics you need to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. One thing you'll learn is that you really can breathe underwater and whether you like doing that or not. You will:
All the equipment you will need is included in a Discover Scuba Diving experience. You'll use all the basic scuba gear including a mask and snorkel, fins, a wetsuit, a buoyancy compensating jacket (BCD) that carries your weights and scuba tank, a scuba regulator to breathe from and instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply.
Just your willingness and undivided attention.
To take participate in the Discover Scuba Diving program you must be at least 12 years old.
