DISCOVER SCUBA Discover life underwater.

The PADI Discover Scuba® Diving Experience

Have you ever wondered what it's like to breathe underwater? If you want to find out but aren't quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) will expand your knowledge and can see if it is something that truly piques your interest.

We offer a version of this program, either in a pool or other body of water. You might try it close to home or even if you are on vacation in Mozambique. While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) 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.

The Fun Part

The fun part? It's all fun! Plus, you can get credit! If your Discover Scuba Diving program includes an actual scuba dive in open water, your experience may count toward the PADI Scuba Diver or the PADI Open Water Diver certification, putting you a step ahead of the game when you decide to pursue the alure that the underwater world has on everyone.

There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It may take a little getting used to but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realize how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge for us as your instructor is coaxing Discover Scuba Diving participants out of the water when the program is over.

What You Learn

You will learn the basics in regards of skills and gear you need to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. One thing you'll learn is that you really can breathe underwater.

You will also learn the following:

  • Learn what wearing scuba equipment feels like and how easy it is to move around underwater while wearing it
  • Experience weightlessness and swim with ease being free from the restraints of the surface
  • Find out what it's like to breathe underwater and learn whether you can be comfortable
  • Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course when you take the next step to a whole new world

The Scuba Gear You Use

All the equipment you will need is included in a Discover Scuba Diving experience.

You'll use all the basic scuba gear including:

  • A mask & snorkel to see underwater and help you with breathing at the surface
  • A pair fins to help propel you underwater
  • A wetsuit for thermal insulation and exposure protection
  • A Buoyancy Compensating Device (BCD) to help you float at the surface and assist you with neutral buoyancy underwater for effortless swimming and exploring
  • A weight belt to help you descend underwater
  • A scuba regulator to enable you to breathe underwater
  • A Submersible Pressure Gauge to help you monitor your depth underwater and remaining air supply

Learning materials you will need

Just your willingness and undivided attention to ensure your safety, understanding of the gear, skills that we will be practicing and ultimate excitement and fun.


To take part in the Discover Scuba Diving program you must be at least 10 years old.

If you are 8 years old, you are still eligible for the PADI Seal Team Course or the PADI Bubblemaker Course.

Your Next Adventure

Once you complete a Discover Scuba Diving program, you can sign up for the PADI Scuba Diver Course or the PADI Open Water Diver Course and enter the aquatic world filled with wonders that only few people will experience. With the PADI Open Water Diver certification you will be able to rent gear for future dive excursions and dive at any other diving operation around the world.
