Discover Scuba Diving

If you want to find out what it’s like to scuba but not quite ready for a certification course or you have a busy schedule and just don’t have the time to do a full course, Discover Scuba Diving will let you try scuba diving to see if you like it.

While not an full scuba certification, during the DSD experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water (down to 12 mts/40 ft) and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional.

Get a feel of how easy it is to move around underwater while wearing scuba equipment and learn basic skills & safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course when you take the next step.

And the most exiting part of all, experience how it feels to breathe underwater and be comfortable.

Want your children +8 to join the fun and start getting to know scuba diving? They can sign up for PADI Bubble Maker, an hour course at 2 mts / 6 feet max. depth with special kid sized scuba gear to experience what scuba diving is like under the direct care and supervision of PADI Instructors and take their first breath underwater.

“Had the most amazing first dive experience thanks to our killer DM, Brooklyn Tate. I was a bundle of nerves when I walked through the doors at UDC, but that immediately changed when Dani paired me with Brooklyn. I did a discover dive with another friend of mine and we were both ridiculously impressed with her attentiveness to our every move…”
