Never Dived Before? Are you wondering what it’s really like to Start Scuba Diving?
You’ve seen divers on television exploring the underwater world, you’d love to try it…..
If you want to find out if you like scuba diving (you’ll love it!), then the PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience is the perfect choice for you. During the Discover Scuba Diving experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water, get a comfortable and easy introduction to a few Scuba skills before diving in open water, all under the watchful eye of a PADI Instructor.
This is a great way for youngsters to experience Scuba diving, to a maximum depth of 2 metres. This programme may be conducted in a swimming pool or the sea. Since we are fortunate enough to have crystal clear, calm waters, the famous Blue Lagoon is our preferred location. Bubblemaker participants will dive with many colourful fish and will explore the underwater world for crabs, octopus and eels. While the Bubblemakers are enjoying the diving, family members may snorkel above (or sign up to dive) making this programme one for all the family.

Here’s what a few divers had to say about their Discover Scuba Diving experience and first breaths underwater.
“Scuba diving can be one of the most thrilling moments of your life. It felt so natural. I was always warned by people that the scariest thing is trusting your equipment and taking your first breath underwater, but that wasn’t the case for me at all. I couldn’t believe how natural it felt. Feeling so comfortable also helped me concentrate on the skills being learned and they were no problem at all. I will always remember that experience, it was one of the most thrilling moments of my life, and also a moment when I discovered my passion for diving.”
– Katrina, 20, Canada “Breathing underwater is an amazing feeling. The water was lovely and warm! We got all suited up and the time had come to breathe underwater for the very first time! What an amazing yet surreal feeling. Suddenly, as I went under the world became so quiet with only the sound of many little bubbles escaping from my regulator. And so we sat on the bottom,fishes all around us, all just looking at each other. I just had to giggle watching everyone’s face as they adjusted to their new surroundings. It reminded me of the way fish look when you take them out of water…trying to figure out where the air was coming from.”
– Mandy, 31, Canada “Once you try scuba diving, you will feel like a member of a secret society. The emotion that you feel after a dive is indescribable. Thus, you will be sharing something precious with other people from all over the world – the same astonishing experience, one to be treasured. When I dive, I can’t stop smiling afterwards and I know that only other divers can fully understand this feeling”.
