PADI Discover Scuba Diving Experience

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 try to scuba to see if you like it. Most PADI dive shops offer a version of this program, either in a pool or other body of water. You might try it close to home or while you’re on vacation. While not an actual scuba certification, during Discover Scuba Diving experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallower water and get a quick and easy introductiom 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 ┬ábut after a few minutes of awstruck 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!

Plus you can get credit! If your Discover Scuba Diving program includes an actual scuba dive in open water, your experience 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.
