Who should try this experience?
Have you always wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you’d like to try scuba diving, but aren’t quite ready for a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) is for you. Bocas Dive Center offers DSD from one of our dive boats. Although it is not a scuba certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is a quick and easy introduction to the underwater world.
To sign up for a PADI Discover Scuba Diving 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.
What will you learn?
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:
- Go over the scuba equipment you use to dive and how easy it is to move around underwater with your gear.
- 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.
