Discover Scuba Diving

The PADI Discover Scuba Diving session will give you a taste of what breathing and swimming underwater is really like. This will be a great experience and a thrill that you will never forget and will want to repeat again as soon as possible.

Course Outline

This introduction session will start off with a briefing where you will be prepared for the pool session which will follow. You will learn about the equipment that you will be using and a few tips to make the experience comfortable and enjoyable.

Once you enter the large heated swimming pool at Macclesfield Leisure Centre, your PADI Instructor will ensure all your equipment fits and help you into it. Following some shallow water practice, and when you feel confident, your Instructor will take you into deeper water to experience the thrill of being weightless underwater. You may also get the opportunity to try a few simple underwater skills!!

When you really start to feel comfortable with the feeling of weightlessness, your instructor may ask you to complete a few optional extra skills – these may even count towards the PADI Open Water Diver qualification! Finally, your Instructor will also explain to you how you can continue your scuba diving adventures after this evening.
