A PADI Professional will fit you with scuba gear and explain how to use it. In a pool or calm water environment. You’ll practice basic diving skills followed by free time to play underwater or go on a guided open water dive.


There are two parts to the Discover Scuba.

The first ocean dive after completing the pool session must be with an instructor. Subsequent dives can be with a Divemaster. Under no conditions is a Discover Scuba graduate allowed to dive without being in the immediate presence of, and under the complete control of, an Instructor or Divemaster who is active and in teaching status.

Minors under the age of 18 must have parental authorization to participate in this course and a parent or legal guardian must be present with the minor during all training and diving.
