PADI DISCOVER SCUBA
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to breathe underwater, to float weightless like an astronaut and move in a 3 dimensional world? Are you going on a holiday or honeymoon to an exotic destination with amazing marine life and you want to check out Scuba before you go? Or maybe you have been inpsired by awesome nature programs like the Blue Planet or Oceans & you want to get closer to the action?
The PADI Discover Scuba session allows you to experience the thrill of breathing underwater in a fun & exciting Scuba adventure. The program is designed for complete beginners to give you a taste of the exciting and weightless aquatic environment.
You'll learn the basic techniques for using Scuba equipment & quickly see how easy it is to Scuba dive. Our friendly team of PADI Professionals will be on hand to ensure you have a memorable experience and to answer any questions you may have.
If you're not sure whether Scuba is for you, come and get your fins wet, blow some bubbles and find out! Things will never be the same again…
Prior to taking the plunge there are a few important things you should know about Scuba Diving. These are explained during a brief, fun & informative presentation, which will answer any questions you may have.
Your underwater adventure will begin by a PADI Instructor or PADI Divemaster introducing you to the Scuba equipment you'll be using during your adventure.
You'll then be given time to adjust to the exhilarating feeling of breathing underwater & before you know it you'll be totally immersed, gliding through the water with ease, experiencing flips, turns & somersaults in this 3 dimensional weightless world.
You may even practice some fun & exciting scuba skills after a demonstration by your PADI Instructor. This will give you an insight into what is involved in the PADI Open Water Diver course.
