Discover Scuba Diving
Discover Scuba Diving, or DSD in short is the best way to get acquainted with SCUBA diving, as it’s the shortest type of course, in which you’ll experience real scuba diving in the ocean. If you’ve never dived before and you’re considering to learn scuba diving, but still have some concerns, we suggest that you’ll try Discover Scuba Diving first, and then you’ll know for certain whether you want to proceed in your SCUBA adventure, or call it quits. After all, scuba diving is not for everyone (though we believe that with the right guidance anyone can become an Open Water Diver and enjoy it).
While doing a DSD one of our professional instructors will escort you in every step of the way. You’ll start with a pool session, in which you’ll learn the very basic necessary skills for SCUBA Diving: Breathing through the regulator, inflating and dilating your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device), finding your regulator underwater, clearing your mask underwater, etc. Once you’ve preformed the skills to a sufficient level, you’ll then have a short break and proceed with our instructor to the ocean for an open water dive.
You’ll dive to 12 meters deep (an Open Water diver can dive to 18 meters), and dive in one of the amazing local diving sites we have in Panglao. We usually do our DSDs in Doljo or Danao, where you’ll see very health corals, and other marine life like jack fish, lion fish, frog fish, sea snakes, moray eels, and even turtles if you’re lucky! This will conclude your Discover Scuba Diving experience.
However, you also have an option to do another open water dive afterwards. We usually suggest it to our divers, as people tend to be more relaxed and proficient with their diving equipment after the first dive, and then are able to enjoy the second dive much more. Also, doing two dives will keep you busy for about half a day, making it a great attraction while on your vacation. You’ll have half a day of diving in the morning, and half a free day to enjoy the beach, your resort, and Panglao.
