Diving – Discovery dive

$ 99
A discovery dive is an ideal way to get introduced to diving in a relaxed way. Some basic theory and then with personal guidance you’ll go into the water, as far and deep as you like.

To start right away with a PADI diving course of several days may also be too much of a good thing. At a discovery dive, you will first get the explanation of the basics including how to use your diving equipment, how to communicate underwater, etc. Then you will enter the water in a quiet spot and can go as deep as you feel comfortable with.

A discovery dive is possible every day

What does a discovery dive look like?

Most people who are introduced to scuba diving via a discovery dive find it a bit exciting, and we do understand that. A discovery dive always takes place in a relaxed atmosphere, small groups and with professional instructors who take all the time for you.
It starts with a theoretical part, which includes learning how to breathe calmly underwater with the scuba tank on your back. It explains how to communicate with your diving instructor underwater via universal scuba diving gestures. And the instructor will talk a bit about how to behave underwater (e.g., don’t touch coral, etc.).

First dive in pool or sea

Once the instructor has explained all the information, and is assured everyone understands it and there are no more questions, it is time to gradually start putting the theory into practice. First you are going to make sure, under supervision of course, that your diving equipment is complete and correct. After that, you will enter the water. Your first scuba diving experience will be in very calm water anyway. This could be a swimming pool, but if weather conditions allow, a quiet beach where there is little to no wave action at the shoreline will soon be sought. After all, a (trial) dive in the sea is just a little more fun and “real” than in a pool, right?

Once everyone is in the water (with their heads still above the water), the instructor will, again, step-by-step talk you through what to do, after which you will go underwater at your own pace. Some will snorkel right away and go deeper unnoticed, while others are still nervous and are a bit afraid to move their heads underwater. No problem, you decide how far you go and of course an instructor will stay near you for tips.

Ultimately, you decide how much you enjoy scuba diving and whether you really want to take a PADI scuba diving course.
