If you are not sure if diving is for you or if you just want a fun day out, try our PADI Discover Scuba programme. It lets you experience the thrill of diving under the care and close supervision of a PADI Instructor, and a great way to get a head start on your PADI Open Water certification. That’s because the skills you complete during this adventure, such as mask clearing, regulator recovery and sharing air, may credit these certification levels, so you can continue where you left off.
Do I need to attend the Discover Scuba program before registering for the Open Water Diver course?
Nope, the Discover Scuba programme is an optional program for those who want a pool session try-out before taking their Open Water Diver certification.
Will I be awarded a certification upon completion of the Discover Scuba experience?
DiveDegree will award a certification for the Kids 4-Week Programme but not for the Adult one. Discover Scuba for Adults is only meant to provide a preliminary diving experience. If you wish to obtain a certification, kindly consider our Open Water Diver course or simply register here.
Do I need to know how to swim for the Discover Scuba programme?
Although we will not assess swimming skills and the entire programme will be conducted in the shallow end of the pool, we do recommend participants have basic swimming skills.
Can I dive if I wear prescription glasses?
Sure you can. For power higher than 350 degrees, you will either need to wear contact lenses or procure a dive mask with customised prescription lenses. We can help you with that! Anything lower than 350 degrees, you can dive with regular mask.
Do I need to be physically fit to scuba dive?
You need to be generally healthy, and certain physical impairments do not prevent you from passing the course and getting certified. Upon registration, a brief medical questionnaire will help you assess if you are suitable to dive.
