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, our Try Scuba Diving and PADI Discover Scuba Diving is for you.
What to expect:
While not a scuba certification course, Try Scuba Diving and PADI Discover Scuba Diving is a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.
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.
You learn the basic safety guidelines and skills needed to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. If you make an open water dive, you’ll practice a few more skills in shallow water to prepare for your adventure. Get ready to:
- Learn about the basic scuba equipment and how to use it underwater
- Find out what it’s like to breathe underwater
- Learn key skills that you’ll use during every scuba dive
- Have fun swimming around and exploring
- Hear about becoming a certified diver through the PADI Open Water Diver course
