PADI Discover Scuba Diving Experience

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. Our PADI dive shop offer this program either in a pool or off a beach for the lesson and from a dive boat for the actual dive. You can try scuba while you’re on vacation here in Bermuda. While not a scuba certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

There is nothing quite like breathing underwater for the very first time. Due to humans not being designed to breathe underwater it takes a little getting used to but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realize how easy and fun scuba diving really is. Due to the amazing nature of the experience the biggest challenge you will face is not getting into the water but getting out of it at the end of the dive as you will wish to stay underwater for longer.

To sign up for a PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience, you must be at least 13 years old. No prior experience with scuba diving is necessary, but you need to be in reasonable physical health, please see the Medical Questionnaire.

What will you learn?

You learn the basic safety guidelines and skills needed to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. You’ll practice a few skills in shallow water to prepare for your adventure out on the dive boat. You will be explained how 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.

What scuba gear will you use?

Your PADI Pro will likely provide all the basic scuba gear you’ll use including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device, dive gauges, and a tank.

You must be able to swim and feel comfortable in the water to register for this course.

Contact us to sign up for a Discover Scuba Diving program and upon check-in you will receive a Discover Scuba Diving Participant Guide. Your Participant Guide explains the experience and lets you study the safety rules and skill techniques your dive professional will review with you. You’ll also learn about opportunities to become part of the scuba community after you complete your underwater experience.
