Course Description

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you want to find out but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving will let you try scuba to see if you like it.

While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving experience, you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

The Fun Part:

There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to – after all, human beings weren’t designed to do that – but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realize how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge instructors have with the Discover Scuba Diving program is not coaxing participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the program is over. The fun part? It’s all fun!

Plus, you can get credit! If your Discover Scuba Diving program includes an actual scuba dive in open water, your experience may count towards you're Open Water Diver certification, putting you a step ahead of the game when you decide to go for it.

What You Learn:

You learn the basics you need to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. One thing you’ll learn is that you really can breathe underwater and whether you like doing that or not. You will:

-Find out what it’s like to breathe underwater and learn whether you can be comfortable there.
-Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course when you take the next step.

The Scuba Gear You Use:

All the equipment you will need is typically included in a Discover Scuba Diving experience. You’ll use all the basic scuba gear including a mask, snorkel and fins, a buoyancy compensating jacket that also carries your scuba tank, a scuba regulator to breathe from and instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply. You might also wear a scuba wetsuit or a weight system depending on where you do your Discover Scuba Diving program.

The Learning Materials You Need:

-Just your willingness and undivided attention
-1 classroom and pool session

Prerequisites:

To take Discover Scuba Diving, you must be:
-At least 10 years old

Your Next Adventure:

Once you complete a Discover Scuba Diving program, you’ll want to check out the Open Water Diver certification course.

After you're experience diving in the safety of the pool, take it to the next level and dive in Okanagan Lake with Serpent Aquatics for $75.00.
