Discover Scuba Adventure
If you want to try Scuba diving, but you're not quite ready for the certification course, Discover Scuba Diving will let you try it out to see if you like it. While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba 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.
While breathing underwater takes a little getting used to, 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 coaxing them out when the program is over.
Since your Discover Scuba Diving program includes an actual dive in open water, your experience will count toward PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver certification, putting you a step ahead of the game when you decide to go for it.
You can Discover Scuba with us during 2 days of your Molokai vacation.
