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, our Try Scuba Diving and PADI Discover Scuba Diving is for you. While not a scuba certification course, Try Scuba Diving and PADI Discover Scuba Diving is a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.
To breathe underwater for the first time – what a feeling! This is simply incomparable! You have to get used to it at first. After all, people are not made for it normally. After a few minutes of quiet breathing under water, most participants realize how easy diving can be. To stay calm and to follow the instructions of your PADI Instructor are the first prerequisites to complete the first diving exercises of your life. If that works after a few minutes, most of the participants are really enthusiastic and never forget that first impression under water.
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:
Learn about the basic scuba equipment and how to use it underwater
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.
After the experience you’ll get a Certificate of Recognition (not a scuba certification) and we register you in the PADI system. This certificate recognizes that you have attended and satisfactorily completed a PADI Discover Scuba Diving program. Because of the high demand on fun dives in the morning we decided to usually start Discover Scuba Diving in the afternoon (in some cases, in the off-season, there is also the possibility to start in the morning). You can start in the afternoon, at 13:15. Please contact us AT LEAST one day before, so that we can organize the course groups and reserve a spot for you.
Arrival (8:15 | 13:15)
Upon your arrival at the base, you will be welcomed by one of our local and international Divemasters and Instructors. You fill out the necessary paperwork, medical statement.
First you start in the classroom with theoretical part which includes PADI video and a short quiz.
Then you are sized up for your equipment, we give you fins, mask and wetsuit. Once Instructor set up all the equipment, you learn basics about scuba diving.
Then you have a comprehensive but compact dive and boat briefing with your group. This consists of important information about the dive sites, safety procedures, and attractions of the dive site, marine life, signs & signals.
Departure (9:00 | 14:00)
Finally, we cast off! Once the equipment is loaded on the boats with the help of our staff, we take off to our dives sites, of which most can be reached within 10 minutes.
Time passes quickly underwater as you are surrounded by all the fish. You will enjoy spectacular marine life and first time breathing underwater. One dive usually takes a maximum of 35 to 45 minutes depending on your breathing and air consumption.
If you loved your first experience, you could also do a second dive and get even more comfortable. And if you have more time to spare and cannot resist getting into the water, you could continue on to doing the PADI Open Water Course.
Return (11:00 | 16:00)
After your return to the diving school, our Divemaster helps you to identify different species that you witnessed during your dives.
Diving helps create a bond between people, all coming from different parts of the world, but all sharing the same love for the ocean, and we provide a platform for just that.
