Discover Scuba Diving

When you discover scuba diving, you discover excitement and adventure – freedom and serenity. Nothing compares to the weightless exhilaration of breathing underwater. Only a diver knows the feeling!

A PADI Discover Scuba Diving program with Global Aquatic lets you experience the thrill of diving under the supervision of one of our PADI Instructors in ideal conditions. During your adventure, you’ll master some basic concepts and scuba skills before heading off on an open water dive.

Your open water dive takes you as deep as 12 meters/40 feet! The Discover Scuba Diving experience is a great way to get a head start on your PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver certification.

The PADI Scuba Diver program is a pre-entry level certification that is perfect for holiday divers or people who only plan to dive a couple times a year.
