PADI Discover Scuba Diving Program

Discover Scuba Diving Program

Is one of the Most Enjoyable Ways of Discovering If Scuba Diving Is for you? During Your PADI Discover Scuba Diving Experience you will have the opportunity to explore 2 shallow reefs dive sites. During your adventure, you will become an aquanaut experiencing weightless as if you where in outer space. You will also get up close and personal with the local marine life. After your adventure you may never be the same on dry land again. So spend a day with us and let's go exploring.

What can I expect to see?

Our local coral reefs are teeming with marine life.  More varieties of fish than we could possibly list. If you're lucky, you might even see some dolphins, turtles or majestic eagle rays. Snorkeling is great, but there is nothing like scuba diving.
