You will meet with your PADI instructor who will explain the basics of scuba diving and show you how the equipment works. Then they will take you into either the swimming pool or off the beach in the shallow water (you will be able to stand up) and you will practice using all the gear and go for a short swim to get you comfortable and feeling confident underwater. After this, you’ll join our half-day boat trip and go for two real dives! The instructor will be with you all the time, leaving you worry-free and able to concentrate on all the amazing marine life surrounding you. You’ll see thousands of colorful fish and if you’re lucky also spot some sea turtles. Anybody aged 10 years or over may join the program. You don’t have to be a strong swimmer, just in reasonably good health and eager to give it a try!
Not 10 yet? If your child is aged 8 or 9 years old, we can take them on a similar diving program called the PADI Bubblemaker. It includes a swimming pool try out session and then 2 tank dives to a maximum depth of 2 meters.

Who should try Diving?
Have you always wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you want to try scuba diving, but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is for you. PADI dive shops offer this program either in a pool, off a beach or from a dive boat. You can try scuba close to home or while you’re on vacation at a dive destination. While not a scuba certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.
To sign up for a PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience, you must be at least 10 years old. No prior experience with scuba diving is necessary, but you need to be in reasonable physical health.
What knowledge you will gain from the DSD?
You learn the basic safety guidelines and skills needed to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. If you make an open water dive, you’ll practice a few more skills in shallow water to prepare for your adventure. Get ready to:
- Go over the scuba equipment you use to dive and how easy it is to move around underwater with your gear.
- Find out what it’s like to breathe underwater.
- Learn key skills that you’ll use during every scuba dive.
- Have fun swimming around and exploring.
- Hear about becoming a certified diver through the PADI Open Water Diver course.
