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.
While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.
The Fun Part
There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to –after all, human beings weren’t designed to do that – but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realize how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge instructors have with the Discover Scuba Diving program is not coaxing participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the program is over. The fun part? It’s all fun!
Experience scuba diving under close supervision. If you’re like most people, you will be hooked after your first breath underwater.
Plus, you can get credit! Your Discover Scuba Diving program 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.
What You Learn
You learn the basics needed 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:
Take the plunge and learn what wearing scuba equipment feels like and how easy it is to move around underwater while wearing it.
Find out what it’s like to breathe underwater and learn how comfortable it really is.
Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course when and if you decide to take the next step.

You’ll use all the basic scuba gear including a mask , snorkel and fins, a buoyancy compensating device that also carries your scuba tank, a scuba regulator to breathe from and instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply.
