What will my Discover Scuba Dive Include?

At Scubadive West, we conduct all our scuba dive training in our sheltered cove. Our PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors)Discover Scuba Diving programme is a half-day (one dive) or full-day (two dives) offering people the opportunity to experience scuba diving before committing to a full certification course.

The programme begins with a brief classroom session where your instructor will explain basic diving principles and techniques. Step two is a skill practice session in shallow water. Your PADI Instructor will teach you basic diving skills including how to clear water from a mask, how to recover a regulator, how to ascend from a dive and how to communicate underwater using hand signals. Finally, you will move out into slightly deeper water with your PADI Instructor where you will experience a real open water dive.

What Age Do I need to Be?

Scubadive West welcomes anyone from the age of 11 years and above for scuba diving. There is no upper age limit. If you have a child younger than 11 years, we are happy to undertake our Discover Snorkelling programme with them.
