Discover Scuba Diving

Discover Scuba Diving

Have you always wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you want to try scuba diving, but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is for you.

PADI dive shops offer this program either in a pool, off a beach or from a dive boat. You can try scuba close to home or while you’re on vacation at a dive destination. While not a scuba certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

To sign up for a PADI Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) experience, you must be at least 10 years old. No prior experience with scuba diving is necessary, but you need to be in reasonable physical health.

You can choose from two different options. The DSD Program to 6 Meters is guided by a Divemaster and you only receive basic informations about diving. The DSD Program to 12 Meters Depth will teach by an instructor and you will get further information about diving and develop certain skills underwater. There is also the possibility to do a second dive after your first DSD-Experience.

Course content

To breathe underwater for the first time - what a feeling! This is simply incomparable! You have to get used to it at first. After all, people are not made ​​for it normally. After a few minutes of quiet breathing under water, most participants realize how easy diving can be. To stay calm and to follow the instructions of your PADI Instructor are the first prerequisites to complete the first diving exercises of your life. If that works after a few minutes, most of the participants are really enthusiastic and never forget that first impression under water.

What you learn with DSD to 12 Meters
