Discover Scuba Diving-
PADI Discover Scuba Experience

Have you ever wondered what itís like to breathe underwater? If you want to find out but arenít quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving will let you try scuba to see if you like it. We offer this program in a pool for your first time underwater. You might try it close to home or while youíre on vacation.

While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving experience youíll 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? Itís all fun!
There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to Ė after all, human beings werenít designed to do that Ė 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.

Experience scuba diving under close supervision. If youíre like most people, you will be hooked after your first breath underwater
