PADI Discover Scuba Diving - Pool Session Only - £45
The PADI Discover Scuba program lets you experience the thrill of diving under the supervision of a PADI professional and in the safe confines of a swimming pool. During your session you will :
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
This session costs £45 and includes your instruction fees, all of your scuba diving equipment for the session and registration with PADI as a DSD Participant - all you need is your swimming costume and towel!
We run our pool sessions on most Wednesday evenings, and can accommodate your Discover Scuba Diving Session most times. No previous experience is required, but divers should be in reasonably good health (please request the PADI DSD medical form if you are unsure)
The session consists of an introduction to diving by the pool as the instructor sets up your equipment. Then you have the chance to try scuba diving, first on the surface, then in the shallow end. If you are feeling brave you may also venture into the deep end under your PADI professional diver's supervision. This gives you the perfect chance to experience the adventure of diving under safe and controlled guidance.
Please contact SCUBA DIVING SCOTLAND or click on the link to reserve your space in the pool now!
Please Note: Costs are non-refundable but you may reschedule, without additional cost, if you provide a minimum of 48 hours notice.
Who should try this experience?
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.
