We’re beyond excited to potentially guide you through your first splash into the world of diving. If you’ve been toying with the idea of scuba diving but aren’t quite ready to commit, our PADI Discover Scuba Diving course is the perfect way for you to dip your toes in the water—literally!

Itinerary

  1. Warm Welcome & Safety Briefing: Your day starts with a friendly orientation to get you acquainted with the basics of safety in scuba diving.
