PADI Discover Scuba Diving – Try diving for the first time!
If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to scuba, but aren’t sure that it’s for you, this is the perfect introduction! Our experienced team will help you every step of the way. Our Discover Scuba Diving is usually done on either the south or west side of Oahu and we offer complimentary pick-up and drop-off for Waikiki hotels. Clients may also choose to meet us at the Dive Center so they can depart immediately following the boat’s return.
The Discover Scuba Diving experience is a full day, from 9 AM until 3:30-5 PM*. You start with an academic briefing and video, followed by a two tank afternoon boat charter where you’ll enjoy two scuba dives with one our skilled PADI instructors in no deeper than 40 ft of water. Snacks, such as chips and cookies, and fresh water are provided on the dive boat. All you will need to bring are a bathing suit, sunscreen, and a towel. We suggest you bring a small bag with those items and anything else you would like for a day out on the water. There’s usually not a lot of room on dive boats, so please keep that in mind. If you get sea sick, we recommend you take one dramamine the night before and then two hours before you get on the boat. And, the best part? If you decide to become certified, your dives can count toward your PADI Open Water Diver certification.
