Introductory Program - Discover SCUBA Diving

The Discover SCUBA Diving program is an easy introduction into the world of diving. It combines a brief review of diving theory, equipment set-up and function, and basic diving skills so that you can safely and comfortably take your first breaths underwater. Although not a certification, it will be credited towards your open water certification if you like diving and continue on to the Open Water course.

This program is divided into two sections. The first is a review of the necessary information including basic diving theory, equipment use, hand signals and diving skills. The second section is the in-water practice, typically performed in a pool, although it can also be performed in very shallow, clear and calm water of a lake or ocean if available.

This program is perfect for anyone interested in trying SCUBA diving for the first time. Remember, this is not a certification course, so if you'd like to get certified, the Open Water course is for you.
