PADI Discover Scuba

A fun way to try scuba diving before taking a certification course


Newcomers to scuba diving may not want to start with a certification course. Finding out whether you enjoy the experience and just having some fun and a chance to explore is often a great place to begin. PADI Discover Scuba Diving is the perfect place to start if you’re looking to give diving a go and explore the possibilities that come afterwards.

PADI Discover Scuba Diving is available at PADI shops around the world and can be taken in a pool, off a beach or even from a dive boat. You may decide to give scuba a go at home in preparation for a holiday or enjoy your first Discover Scuba experience while away.

Who can sign up for a PADI Discover Scuba experience?

PADI Discover Scuba Experiences are for people aged 10 or above. You do not need prior scuba diving experience but a reasonable level of physical health is necessary. It is a perfect experience for complete novices and those who may have researched a little about scuba diving but want to try it in real life before committing to a certification course.

What does Discover Scuba teach you?

A PADI Discover Scuba experience will teach you the basic safety guidelines and initial skills you need to dive. You are under the direct supervision of a PADI professional at all times and you may make an open water dive, after practicing in shallower waters first. The experience will give you the chance to go over scuba equipment necessary for diving and learn the key skills you’ll need every time you dive. You’ll get to experience breathing underwater and have the chance to swim and explore while fully geared up. The experience will also give you the chance to hear about certification and consider becoming a certified diver through the range of open water diving courses offered by PADI.

The next step after PADI Discover Scuba is becoming PADI certified as an open water diver.
