The PADI Discover Scuba Diving program is designed for individuals who have little or no previous scuba diving experience but are interested in trying it out.
The Discover Scuba Diving course at Coiba Dive Center typically includes a combination of theory, confined water training, and open water diving. Here is a general overview of what you can expect from the course:
Theory: You will receive a brief introduction to the basic principles of scuba diving, including the equipment used, safety guidelines, and basic diving techniques. This will provide you with a fundamental understanding of scuba diving concepts.
Confined Water Training: In a controlled environment such as a swimming pool or shallow water, you will have the opportunity to practice essential scuba diving skills under the guidance of a certified instructor. This may involve learning how to use the equipment, clearing your mask, equalizing your ears, and basic underwater communication.
Open Water Dives: Once you have gained confidence and familiarity with the equipment and basic skills, you'll have the chance to apply what you've learned during open water dives. These dives will typically take place in the beautiful marine environment around Coiba Island. You will be accompanied by your instructor, who will guide you throughout the experience and help you explore the underwater world.
It is important to note that the Discover Scuba Diving course is not a full certification course. It provides an introductory experience to scuba diving and allows you to discover if you enjoy the activity before committing to a full certification course. If you decide to pursue scuba diving further, Coiba Dive Center and other dive centers typically offer additional courses, such as the PADI Open Water Diver certification, which will provide you with the necessary skills and knowledge to dive independently.
