The PADI Discover Scuba Dive is for those who have always wondered what it is like Scuba Dive but aren’t quite ready yet to take the certification course. This is the perfect way to determine if Scuba Diving is for you!
Our Discover Scuba Dive begins with a short 45 min familiarization course with one of our experienced PADI dive instructors who will explain the basics of your gear, safety rules, a description of the dive site and the fun you are going to have! Once your briefing is finished you will gear-up and jump in the shallow water off the end of our dock. The water is typically calm and clear and approximately 4 ft deep – a perfect setting to learn some skills underwater prior to heading off on your dive! From here you will go on a one hour scuba dive!
The dive site here is called The Wreck of the Cali which was originally a four masted schooner that had been converted to a cargo ship in the early 1900’s. In the 1940’s she sunk and was scuttled in the George Town Harbour and now lays in approximately 30 ft of water. The makes for an ideal site for first time divers as the wreck is home to plenty of tropical fish and a resident school of Tarpon.
Please note that this is NOT a Scuba certification, it is an introduction to scuba diving. Groups are kept to PADI standards of 4 students or less per instructor. Certified divers are welcome to join friends or family on this beginner dive. This course is available to those students who are a minimum of 10 years old, medically fit to dive and are comfortable in the water.
