Discover Scuba

Have you ever wondered what itís like to breathe underwater. If you want to find out but arenít quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving will let you try scuba to see if you like it. 
While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving experience youíll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction of what it takes to explore the underwater world.

What You Learn

You learn the basics you need to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. One thing youíll learn is that you really can breathe underwater and you can decide whether you like doing that or not. 

You will:

  • Learn what wearing scuba equipment feels like and how easy it is to move around underwater while wearing it
  • Find out what itís like to breathe underwater and learn whether you can be comfortable there
  • Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course when you take the next step


Prerequisites are basic comfort in and around water.

Course Cost is $75 and includes all materials, the class time (simple safety brief), the pool dive, and all of your equipment.

The overall experience takes about two hours give or take.


You'll need to bring your swim suit, "shorty" wetsuit if you have one, or "underarmor" style shirt and bicycle shorts work well too. Remember the pool is 85degF, and you're 98.6degF....since the pool won't get warmer, you'll get cold.

A towel is always good, and a pen for signing forms.

You will be required to fill out a medical questionnaire prior to "in-water" activities, so if you have ANY medical conditions it's good to look into that ahead of time. Just ask us if you're not sure.
