Discover Diving with PADI’s Discover Scuba Diving Course
The underwater world exerts a mysterious attraction on many of us. The beautiful coral reefs, colorful fish and the depth of the ocean arouse curiosity and wonder. If you’ve always dreamed of exploring the sea floor, the PADI Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) course is the perfect way to get started. This course offers beginners the chance to learn the basics of diving and have their first breathtaking underwater experience.
PADI, or the Professional Association of Diving Instructors, is the world’s leading diving organization. They offer a wide range of diving courses, from beginner levels to advanced technical diving courses. PADI instructors around the world are trained to ensure safety and diving skills, and the PADI DSD course is no exception.
What is the PADI Discover Scuba Diving Course?
The PADI Discover Scuba Diving course is designed for people who are not certified divers but want a taste of the underwater world. It is an approachable and safe way to discover if diving is for you, without the obligation of a full diving course.
The Course Sequence
The DSD course usually consists of three main phases:
1. Theory lesson and Introduction to Diving Equipment.
The course usually begins with a brief theoretical explanation of the basics of diving. In this class you will learn about underwater pressure changes, breathing techniques and safety precautions. You will also be introduced to scuba equipment, including goggles, snorkel, fins, regulator and diving vest.
2. Confined Water Training
After theory, you will go to a pool or shallow water where you will practice basic diving skills under the supervision of a PADI instructor. This includes:
- Getting your equipment on and off.
- Checking your regulator and buoyancy.
- Performing basic diving skills, such as ear clearing and removing and putting on your mask underwater.
- Swim and float underwater to become familiar with the feeling of weightlessness.
This stage is designed to familiarize you with the equipment and make you feel comfortable underwater before moving to open water.
3. Open Water Diving
The highlight of the DSD course are the open water dives. This involves actually diving in the sea under the guidance of your instructor at a maximum depth of 12 meters. During this dive, you will have the chance to truly experience the underwater world surrounded by colorful fish and beautiful marine life.
Your instructor will guide you as you explore the dive site and point out interesting things to see. The main goal is to make you feel comfortable and safe underwater while enjoying this unforgettable experience.
- The PADI Discover Scuba Diving course is not a diving certification in itself. It is an introductory course that does not give you full diving privileges. If you decide to continue diving after the course, you might consider taking the PADI Open Water Diver course, which does earn you a diving certificate.
- It is critical to be medically fit for diving. Before you begin the course, you must fill out a medical certificate and possibly consult a doctor to make sure there are no health problems that could impede diving.
- Safety always comes first in diving. PADI instructors are trained to ensure that all dives are safe. Always follow your instructor’s instructions and never take unnecessary risks underwater.
