PADI Discover Scuba Diving Experience

  • Chris

    Have you ever wondered what it's like to breathe underwater?

    A PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience is a great way to find out what scuba diving is really like before you take the full scuba certification course.

    Before entering the pool, you will go over some of the theory behind breathing under water and the effect of water pressure on your body including why you need to equalize your air spaces.

    Once we have gone over this, you will be kitted out and into the pool to go over the equipment you are wearing, learn a few basic skills before the fun part of heading to the deep end of our pool to swim around weightless, breathing underwater for the first time!
