PADI Discover Scuba Diving

PADI DISCOVER SCUBA DIVING

Have you ever wondered what it's like to breath underwater? If you want to find out but aren't quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving will let you try scuba to see if you like it. While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving experience you'll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world while under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional.

The Fun Part

The fun part? It's all fun! There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to - after all, we weren't designed to do that - but after a few minutes of awestruck 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.

 

PADI Open Water Diver

PADI OPEN WATER DIVER

The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world’s most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle.

What You Learn

The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge Development (online, home study or in a classroom) to understand basic principles of scuba diving

  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills

  • Open Water Dives to review your skills and explore!

If you’ve tried diving through a Discover Scuba Diving experience or resort course, the skills you learned may be credited towards a portion of the full PADI Open Water Diver course certification.

The PADI Open Water Diver course is incredibly flexible and performance based, which means that as a PADI shop, Blue Wilderness Dive Adventures can offer a wide variety of schedules, paced according to your schedule and how fast you progress.
