Experience the thrill of breathing underwater while having fun with your family and friends!
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!
There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realise how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge for The SCUBA Shack is coaxing Discover Scuba Diving participants out of the water when the program is over. The fun part? It's all fun!
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:
All the equipment you will need is included in a Discover Scuba Diving experience. You'll use all the basic scuba gear including a mask and snorkel, fins, a wetsuit, a buoyancy compensating jacket (BCD) that carries your weights and scuba tank, a scuba regulator to breathe from and instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply.
Just yourself, a bathing suit, a towel, and good attitude!
To take participate in the Discover Scuba Diving program you must be at least 10 years old.
Once you complete a Discover Scuba Diving program, you'll want to check out the Open Water Diver certification course.
