Discover Scuba

pool class

The Discover Scuba Diving program lets you experience the thrill of diving under the supervision of a Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) professional in the pool. During your adventure, you will master some basic concepts and scuba skills and have a great time too.

HAVE A GROUP OR CLUB THAT WANTS TO TRY IT? We can help you arrange a “splash party” for the entire group to learn. Contact us for more details.

What will I do?

When you participate in a Discover Scuba Diving program, you discover excitement and adventure, freedom, and serenity. Nothing compares to the “weightless” exhilaration of breathing underwater. Only a diver knows the feeling!

How long will it take?

The whole experience lasts a couple of hours.  During that time, we will review some dive basics and then get you into scuba gear and underwater.

When can I start?

Check out the schedule or if something does not fit your plans, just send us an email to find out when we can get you into the pool. If you have a group (4 or more), we can set up a special session.


    • Minimum age: 10


    • Bathing suit and towel (we provide everything else!)


    • PADI Discover Scuba Diving Participant Guide


    • $80 per person (if you go on to take the Open Water Diver certification with us, you can apply the $80 toward the cost of your course)
