This program aims to familiarize you with the captivating underwater realm, granting you a glimpse into the exhilarating diving experience.

What equipment will I be using on this course?

Rest assured, you will have everything you need to fully enjoy your underwater exploration.

Where will I dive during this PADI course?

We always carefully select optimal training locations based on current availability and ocean conditions. When you sign up for PADI Discover Scuba Diving, you will receive a detailed schedule with detailed arrangements. However, if you have any questions or need additional information, please contact our office. This experience is being conducted in the Marino Ballena National Park. If you would like to have a similar experience on Isla del Cano then feel free to contact us.

Do I need to know how to swim?

You may be surprised to learn that swimming skills are not required for scuba diving. When you dive underwater, you rely on scuba gear such as a buoyancy vest to control depth and prevent sinking. Swimming skills can be beneficial, but are not mandatory. It is worth noting that people with disabilities who cannot swim can still participate in scuba diving. Being underwater offers an extraordinary experience for everyone, regardless of swimming skills.

What is the duration of the course?

The PADI Discover Scuba Diving in Marino Ballena starts at 7 AM from our dive center. The return time is scheduled for 1-2 PM, depending on the ocean conditions.

Do I need to bring my own diving equipment?

You can rest assured that there’s no need to bring your own equipment as we will supply everything necessary. However, if you have your own diving gear and prefer to use it during the course, you are welcome to do so. Our primary objective is to ensure your comfort and convenience throughout the training.

Can you breathe with the mask on?

The diving mask is a vital component of diving gear. It is designed to be worn over the face, providing protection to the eyes and covering the nose. When wearing the mask, breathing through the nose is not possible; however, you can effortlessly breathe through your mouth using the diving regulator. The regulator is a specialized device that delivers air from the cylinder directly to your mouth. Breathing through the regulator is similar to breathing on the surface and does not present any challenges.

What kind of certification will I get?

Upon successfully completing the PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience, you will be awarded a certificate of recognition. This certificate serves as proof of your participation in the program and signifies your introduction to the world of scuba diving. It is important to note that this certificate does not grant you a scuba diving certification. However, if you choose to continue your diving journey and enroll in the PADI Open Water Diver certification, your participation in the Discover Scuba Diving program will be credited towards it. The certificate represents a significant milestone in your diving adventure and can serve as a cherished memento of your first foray into the underwater realm.
