About Your Experience

The ‘Discover Scuba Diving’ is a one hour introduction to diving. You’ll receive a safety briefing from one of our professional PADI instructors. You’ll then start in the shallow end where you will learn how to use the scuba equipment, take your first breaths underwater and do a few simple safety skills. From here it’s time to explore the deep end and experience weightlessness, just like an astronaut!

While not an official scuba certification, the discover scuba trial dive is a great way to get used to being in the water before you take the plunge and sign up for the PADI Open Water Diver Course.

  • You should be in relatively good health and fitness and you will need to make sure that you can answer ‘no’ to all the questions on the medical questionnaire, if not you will need medical clearance from a doctor.
Experience Medical Requirements

Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health and fitness. Chronic health conditions, certain medications and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a physician before diving.

Avoid disappointment, download and review the Diver Medical form to ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course. Instructors, divemasters and dive shop staff are not physicians and should not be asked for medical advice; only medical professionals can give medical clearance to dive.

If you (or your physician) have questions about medical fitness to dive, contact the experts at Divers Alert Network (DAN).

Frequently Asked Questions

Do You Need To Be Able To Swim?

While this scuba diving course does not require a swimming test, it is helpful if you have some basic watermanship skills. If not, you may find yourself uncomfortable in the water. If you want to be prepared, maybe take some time to brush up on your swimming skills so that you can have peace of mind that you’ll be comfortable in the water as possible.
