A PADI Instructor conducts a brief orientation and video session, followed by your first underwater experience in either a swimming pool or shallow water where you’ll learn the basic skills of breathing under water. You’ll continue under the careful supervision of your experienced PADI instructor, to make two actual Scuba Dives in shallow water where you safely experience the same sense of wonder and excitement shared every day by Scuba Divers throughout the world.

What will I Learn in the PADI Discover Scuba Diving Course?

PADI Discover Scuba Diving Student DiverThe PADI Discover Scuba Diving course is designed to encourage you to explore the underwater world and try scuba diving in a safe and relaxed environment. After watching a 30 min video, you’ll learn some basic skills in Baan Laanta’s swimming pool and have time to get comfortable with the equipment. Once you’re happy in the pool, we’ll take you for a day out on the dive boat to complete two open water dives. You’ll dive to a maximum depth of 12 metres on each dive and be accompanied by a PADI Instructor at all times.
