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, Discover Scuba Diving is for you. PADI dive shops offer this program either in a pool, off a beach or from a dive boat. You can try scuba close to home or while you’re on vacation at a dive destination. While not a scuba certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore 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. Are you ready to try it out? Use the event locator to find and schedule a Discover Scuba Diving experience near you.


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.

The Instructor will go through, and prepare your equipment with you.


We meet at Dawn Dive Centre at 8 AM.  You should be back at the dive school at approx. 2PM and complete your paperwork with your Instructor.  


The Dives

Before you go diving you will complete DSD forms with a medical questionnaire* and watch a short video. The video gives you information about diving, it shows you what exercises (skills) you will practice in the Confined Water Session.    You will then drive to the dive site with your Instructor.The first dive (the confined water dive) is to 6 meters where you will complete some simple skills like clearing your mask under water and recovering the regulator. After a short surface interval, the second dive is to a maximum depth of 12 meters with no more skill to perform.


The price is €80 each including kit rental, transport from the dive centre to the dive site and return, and also a Padi booklet and certificate of completion. This is not a Scuba Certification Course it only allows you to dive under direct supervision of the PADI Professional Instructor, HOWEVER the ocean dive does get credited towards the PADI Open Water Diver course if you proceed within one year.
