More about Discover Scuba Diving

Have you always wondered what it is like to breathe underwater? The PADI Discover Scuba Diving Course is the perfect quick and easy introduction to the fun and adventure of scuba diving & it ONLY takes 1 day! (4 hours).

After a brief lecture on the basic safety rules and skill techniques required for scuba diving, you will head straight to the pool, where you will find out what it is like to breathe underwater for the first time! Once you have mastered key skills in the swimming pool and discovered how easy it is to move around underwater with your gear. It is off to the ocean for a sea dive & discover the underwater world.

If you would like to continue exploring the spectacular reefs and marine life you can purchase a diving package which will allow you to enjoy numerous shore dives, shallow boat dives & the popular seal dive during your stay in Plettenberg Bay. (This qualification is valid for a duration of 1 year).

Plus, you can get credit! Your ocean dive and skills that you will have mastered in the pool during this program will count towards the PADI Open Water Diver certification
