This is the perfect experience for anyone who just wants to ‘try it’. A professional guide stays right with you all the way, and you get all the fun, with a minimum of commitment. You know that you’ve always wanted to! Go ahead a take the plunge now! Discover scuba diving is your first step into the amazing underwater realm. Nothing compares to the “weightless” exhilaration of breathing underwater. Only a diver knows the feeling!
This course is conducted over 1 day and its a total of 2 scuba dives. After getting on the boat we have a briefing which goes over the things you need to know about diving with an instructor. We have a quick knowledge review and you have to answer some questions about what has been explained to you, once you have completed that. We go over your gear, and what its used for, the entry and exit techniques and what you can expect to see and feel underwater. After we complete the 2 dives you are then given a PADI certificate. The great thing is that these 2 dives count towards your PADI Open Water Certification should you choose to do this at a later time.
