Get ready to be amazed
There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to – after all, human beings weren't designed to do that – but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realise how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge instructors have with the Discover Scuba Diving programme is not coaxing participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the experience is over. Once you've mastered the breathing bit then it's time to feel weightless while you swim around the deep end of the pool.
What You Learn on your Trial Dive
You learn the basics you need to dive under the direct supervision of one of our PADI Professionals. One thing you'll learn is that you really can breathe underwater and whether you wish to go on to do the Open Water Course.
Learn what wearing scuba equipment feels like and how easy it is to glide around underwater while wearing it.
Find out what it's like to breathe underwater and learn whether you can be comfortable there.
