PADI Discover Scuba Diver (DSD)

Join a world of discovery, fun and adventure with PADI DSD ...

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater. If you want to find out but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving will let you try scuba to see if you like it.

Join us in the big 'dive tank' in front of our dive centre or in one of the tidal pools or in winter we use a HEATED POOL.

While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving you will learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.


The Fun Part

There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to – after all, human beings 'weren’t designed to do that' – but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realize how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge Instructors have with the Discover Scuba Diving program is not coaxing participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the program is over. The fun part? It is all fun!

What You Learn

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

The Scuba Gear You Use

All the equipment you will need to use is included in the Discover Scuba Diving experience. Just bring a 'cozzie', towel and sunblock.

The Learning Materials You Need

Just your willingness and undivided attention.


  • You must be at least 10 years old.
