About the event
The PADI Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) is a short try-diving experience for adults and children aged 10+. This course introduces you to the basics of scuba diving without certifying you as a diver. The DSD program is a single-day activity, so is ideal for those interested in trying scuba, but lacking spare time.
The PADI DSD program typically involves a detailed briefing on the effects of water pressure, underwater communication, equipment use, and diving safety. Then, you’re ready to go!
The first session involves confined water practice in a swimming pool or pool-like area. During this time, candidates get to grips with breathing through a regulator and swimming efficiently in diving gear. You’ll also be shown a few simple skills from the Open Water Diver course.
When you’re ready, the second session involves an open water dive. This will take place at an easy, shallow ocean dive site – this is what it’s all about, after all!
During the DSD program, you will become familiar with the use of basic scuba gear including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device (BCD), dive gauges, and a scuba tank. You will also receive information about how to become part of the PADI community upon completion of the program. Most importantly, you will build the self-confidence required to fully immerse yourself in the diving world through the PADI Open Water Diver Course
Please note you will also need to purchase a DSD experience from our shop to be able to partake in the event.£0.00
