Class Description:

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 will let you try scuba to see if you like it. While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving 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 (scroll down for availability)


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 realize how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge we normally have with the Discover Scuba Diving program is not coaxing participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the program is over.


What You Learn You Learn:

The basics you need to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. One thing you’ll learn is that you really can breathe underwater and whether you like doing that or not. You will:

  • Learn what wearing scuba equipment feels like and how easy it is to move around underwater while wearing it.

  • Find out what it’s like to breathe underwater and learn whether you can be comfortable there.

  • Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course when you take the next step.

Just your willingness and undivided attention for 1.5 hours.
