Want to try SCUBA diving?

If you answered yes then come an experience the underwater world with us.

PADI Discover Scuba

PacificWatersports.comDiscover Scuba is a chance to experience for the first time the pleasures of Scuba Diving in the weightless Underwater World. SCUBA stands for Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus.

What do we do?

Everything is kept simple.  You are first given an introduction to breathing underwater, equipment and signals.  Next in the pool we go through a few simple fundamentals of diving, then it's playtime.  You will find yourself gliding through the water effortlessly and feeling like a fish.  An staff member will be with you at all times so you will enjoy the experience.

What about my ears?

Lots of people think their ears will be a problem. This usually comes from the past experiences of trying to swim to the bottom of the swimming pool without knowing how to properly equalize.  Equalization is not difficult, we will teach you how and it's much easier to do using Scuba than with snorkel equipment.
