If you are short on time or you just want to check out what all the fuss is about then this is the option for you. When you try diving for the first time, you discover the excitement and mystery & the freedom and serenity. Nothing compares to the “weightless” exhilaration of flying underwater and only a diver knows that feeling. Discover Scuba Diving & feel it for yourself. Or become an astronaut.
After meeting with your instructor, who will go over the fundamentals of scuba diving to enjoy your dive safely, you’ll enter the water ready for your scuba adventure. We’ll practise the initial skills in shallow water and then get ready for your first open water dive under the supervision of your Instructor. To a maximum depth of 12 meters/40 feet, this experience will be the first step in your new hobby that might just change your life.

Typical Diary of your day.
8.00am- meet with your Instructor & fill out necessary paperwork, talk about some of the skills you will be required to do & why you need to know them & then try on some equipment.
9.00am- You will find yourself standing in shallow water, and when you don’t remember what to do your instructor will explain again the actions required to perform that skill. Once you get relaxed on your knees while breathing underwater you’ll watch your instructor perform a skill and then get you to repeat the same action. You will get to repeat these skills untill you feel comfortable. By now you will find yourself flying across field of corals, swimming with fishes and seeing nudibranches while thinking what is that?! Your only limits will be a maximum depth of 12 meters and your air usage.
10.45am- On the boat again trying to explain with your hands and faces to your instructor what did you see.
11.00am- Log your first underwater experience. We will award you an A4 certificate of successfully completing Discover Scuba Diving course.
You can continue to Scuba Diver course or the Open Water Diver course and be credited for the skills you made and your first dive. If you choose so, you do not need to pay for your Discover Scuba Diving course.
