A perfect introduction to the world of scuba diving.
Learning how to scuba dive is a ticket to a lifetime of underwater adventure and this experience is a perfect introduction to the sport. You'll get expert instruction on safety and underwater mobility techniques, then you'll learn how to breathe underwater and achieve weightlessness while getting used to the equipment.
The course takes place in a swimming pool under controlled conditions - and while it might seem a long way from diving in a tropical ocean, it's the perfect way to get a basic grounding in diving and find out whether you like it. It's also ideal for anyone considering taking a PADI Open Water Diving Course.
- Liability releases and medical histories must be completed before the experience
- Divers must be 10 years of age or older
- Instruction from 5 star PADI Instructor Dive Center

"We thought this would be a rather generic and brief intro to scuba diving. We were pleasantly surprised that we had plenty if time in the pool to get a good trial and had plenty of time to really get comfortable with it. We were in the pool for 2 hours and really enjoyed it! Tim was our instructor and he was competent, knowledgeable, and clearly passionate about diving and teaching it. The booking was easy and quick. We are definitely going back for more and will offer the experience to friends too. This was a great gift! Thanks to my brothers!"
