The PADI Discover Scuba Diving Course is designed to introduce non-divers to the thrilling world of SCUBA (Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus) with only a limited amount of theory and in-water training needed.
This experience is a great way for non-certified divers to to dive the crystal clear waters of Grand Cayman or to find out what scuba diving is really like before you take the full certification course.
The Discover Scuba Diving experience is easy, fun and above all – safe!
In the morning there will be a short theory session in which you will learn the important basic rules for scuba diving (dealing with water pressure, breathing on scuba, etc.), followed by being shown the equipment and how it works before going into the swimming pool. You will then practice some easy skills to help familiarize yourself with breathing underwater and using the scuba equipment, so by the end of the morning session, which is approximately 2 hours in length (10am to 12pm), you’ll be ready to go for a real dive!
The afternoon dive boat will then take you to a beautiful shallow coral reef, suitable for both divers and snorkelers. Your instructor will be with you at all times on your 30 minute dive to 40 feet, where you will be shown all the treasures the underwater world has to offer. The boat departs at 2pm and will return at approximately 4.30pm.
After seeing what the amazing underwater world has to offer we’re sure you will want to dive again! We offer a Repeat Resort Course, which means you can dive as many times as you wish during your stay on Cayman without repeating the morning pool and theory session again. You have the option to dive on the West Side, the Kittiwake Wreck or at Stingray City. All dives must be made with an instructor, are limited to 40 feet and are subject to instructor availability.
All instruction, equipment and boat dive is included.
