Discover Scuba Diving

Meet at Reston Pool – 9:00am

Pool side briefing and quick quiz – 9:15am – 10:15am

In the pool breathing underwater 10:30am – 12:30pm

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater. If you want to find out but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into the full certification course, the PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience is perfect for you!

While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

Class Overview

The first part of the class is conducted Poolside. The instructor will review the PADI Discover Scuba Diving flip chart and introduce participants to the equipment and basic skills they’ll be using in the water. The next 60-90 minutes are spent in the shallow end of the pool where participants can safely put their new skills to use!

There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to –after all, human beings weren’t designed to do that – but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realize how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge instructors have with the Discover Scuba Diving program is not coaxing participants into the water, but getting them out when the program is over.
