Try Scuba Today!

Have you ever wondered what it's like to breathe underwater? Then here is your chance to give scuba a try in a fun, no-pressure setting. In the PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience, we will let you try scuba to see if you like it without a big commitment of time or money. Then, if you like it, you can move on to Beginning Scuba, our full certification course.

What You Learn

There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to but after a few minutes, you will realize how easy scuba diving really is.

In our Discover Scuba Diving course, you will:

  • Experience 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 whether you can be comfortable there
  • Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course

Most classes spend about one hour in the pool. Once some fundamentals are learned, you will get the chance to play some games like underwater Frisbee®.

When It's Offered

Our Discover Scuba Diving courses run at least once a month throughout the year. This is an economical and fun way to see if scuba is right for you.

If you have a group interested in trying scuba, you may want to consider throwing a scuba party. For more details, see Scuba Parties.
