Discover Scuba

Have you always wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? How it feels to be weightless like an astronaut?  If you want to try scuba diving but aren’t quite ready to plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba is for you.

Discover Scuba makes a great present - click here if you'd like to purchase a gift certificate.

In your 90 minute experience, you’ll learn the basic safety guidelines and skills needed to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional.  Following a short briefing you’ll spend an hour in the pool using scuba gear and picking up the basics of swimming and breathing underwater.

You’ll have fun swimming around and exploring. Discover Scuba is also a great way to find out about becoming a certified diver through the PADI Open Water Diver course.

Can I do it?
To complete Discover Scuba you need to be at least ten years old, although a PADI Bubblemaker is a very similar experience for 8-9 year olds and can be arranged in the same session for siblings or family groups.

No experience with scuba diving is necessary but you do need to be comfortable in the water.
All equipment is supplied and you’ll take away a booklet about the basics of diving together with a certificate to celebrate your achievement.

You will need a swimsuit or swimming shorts, a t-shirt you don't mind getting wet, and a towel to take part.
