PADI Discover Scuba Diving
This is similar to a try dive, yes it’s still a first time dive suitable for complete beginners but with a few differences. Mainly it’s the first module of the PADI Open Water Diver Course, the most popular diving course in the world. Once completed you receive credit towards your next step and if you don’t have time for the next step now you can join in on some more dives with us to a depth of 12m. Unlike a Try Dive, on the Discover Scuba Diving program you have two sessions in the water and learn some of the skills that you will use as a qualified diver. This allows us to take you a little deeper on the second dive, 12m to be exact providing conditions are suitable and we fell you are confident enough.

Maximum Depth 12m – 2 Dives
This is just as it sounds, it’s a Try and you will use all the equipment that you would use as a qualified diver. Try Dives take just a half day, morning or afternoon and we run these every day of the week. If you’ve always fancied scuba diving, or only just thought about it, it’s a great way to find out if it’s for you. Our Try Dives are really popular if you are short on time and just want to have a go. However, if you are thinking you may like to continue and become a qualified diver we highly recommend you take the PADI Discover Scuba Diving option.
