PADI Discover Scuba Diving

Scuba diving is exciting, fun – and often once you try it, very addictive! We offer an introductory PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience aimed at keeping it short and sweet. Over an hour or two in our pool, you’ll get to experience scuba for the first time and learn some basic skills.

1. Course overview

There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time, it’s simply amazing! After the first few minutes of awestruck wonder, most people realise how easy scuba diving really is.

The biggest challenge our instructors have with the Discover Scuba Diving experience is not coaxing participants into the water, but coaxing them out when it’s over! It is literally like discovering a whole new world.

The full session is carried out in our swimming pool, in Lincoln. To participate, you must be at least 10 years old. Check out our PADI Bubblemaker and PADI Seal Team programmes if you’re under 10.

2. What you'll learn

You learn the absolute basics of what you need to dive, under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional.

One thing you’ll learn is that you really can breathe underwater, easily and safely. You learn how wearing scuba equipment feels, and how easy it is to move around underwater while wearing it.

You’ll also learn some basic scuba skills, scuba etiquette, and safety rules that will carry over to your full PADI Open Water certification course, if you choose to take the next step.

3. Equipment

We’ll provide everything you need for the Discover Scuba Diving experience.

You’ll use a mask, snorkel, fins, buoyancy compensating jacket (BCD), scuba regulator to breathe, and the instrumentation to monitor your depth and air supply. Your BCD will also carry a scuba cylinder for your air supply.

Even though we’re diving in a pool, you’re welcome to hire one of our wetsuits to get a feel for these too. Alternatively just bring a swimsuit and t-shirt.

4. Learning materials

We will send you a email with our contact form & a web link so you can register on the PADI eLearning portal. Once you have created an account with PADI and filled in our e-Form you will be able to access your PADI Discover Scuba Diving e-Learning materials and the PADI web forms.
