DISCOVER SCUBA Discover life underwater.

PADI Discover Scuba® Diving Experience

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 a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving will let you try scuba to see if you like it.

AMERICAN DIVERS INTERNATIONAL offers this program, FOR FREE for Brevard residents, in our heated pool. 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 & free introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

Discover Scuba

What You Learn

You learn the basics you need to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. 

 You will:

  • Learn what wearing scuba equipment feels like and how easy it is to move around underwater while wearing it
  • Find out what it's like to breathe underwater and learn whether you can be comfortable there
  • Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course when you take the next step


The Scuba Gear You Use

All the equipment you will need is included in a Discover Scuba Diving experience. You'll use all the basic scuba gear including a mask and snorkel, fins, a wetsuit, a buoyancy compensating jacket (BCD) that carries your weights and scuba tank, a scuba regulator to breathe from and instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply.
