The Programme

The PADI Discover Scuba Diving programme offers you the ideal way to experience scuba diving without having to enroll on the PADI Open Water course. If you don’t have time for the full diver training or would just like to see what diving is all about then this fun day out is perfect for you. Your personal instructor will teach you basic scuba diving theory and familiarize you with your equipment before accompanying you on 2 or 3 exciting dives at protected dive sites to a depth limit of 12 metres. During this daytrip adventure you will be under the supervision of your experienced and patient instructor at all times. The full day programme consists of:

Performing basic scuba diving skills underwater

Experiencing thrilling scuba diving with tropical fish, colourful corals and marine animals The course does not give you a scuba diving qualification but you will receive a certificate at the end of your day’s experience. This certificate can be used towards your PADI Open Water Courseat a later date.


Your day out begins in the morning between 7:30-8:00am when you will be collected from your hotel and transferred by minibus to Chalong pier. There you will be met by Andy or one of his expert instructors and escorted to the large, comfortable 2-deck dive boat After a cooked breakfast, your instructor will use scuba gear and lesson materials to teach you all about your equipment and scuba diving theory. You’ll learn the important rules of scuba diving and master some basic scuba concepts. Then you will arrive at the first dive site and your instructor will spend some time giving you a detailed briefing about your first training session. In shallow water you will be shown underwater a detailed demonstration of all the necessary scuba skills. You will then have time to practice and master these skills under your instructor’s direct supervision.
