The PADI Discover SCUBA Diving program lets you experience the thrill of diving under the supervision of a PADI Professional in pool or pool-like conditions. During your adventure, you'll master some basic concepts and SCUBA skills and might even head off to experience an open water adventure. As soon as you Discover SCUBA Diving, you're on your way to an internationally recognized certification.

When you participate in a Discover SCUBA Diving program, you discover excitement and adventure - freedom and serenity. Nothing compares to the "weightless" exhilaration of breathing underwater. Only a diver knows the feeling!

With a PADI Discover SCUBA Diving Experience, you can try SCUBA at our in-store pools. A PADI Discover SCUBA Diving experience is a great way to find out what SCUBA diving is really like before you take the full SCUBA certification course.

How the course works: Your SCUBA instructor will spend a little time with you to explain the basic principles of SCUBA diving and give you an overview of your SCUBA gear, which is supplied by Sport Chalet. Once you feel comfortable, your instructor will take you in the pool to help you learn basic SCUBA skills.

Bring your bathing suit and towel. Participants must be at least 10 years old.
