Kids – bring your parents diving! For young adventurers like you, the bubblemaker program is an introduction to the thrill of breathing underwater. If you’re eight or nine years of age, now is your chance to take the plunge with a PADI Instructor and go pool diving. Whether it’s a glass of milk, bubble gum or submerged beneath the surface – you can’t help blowing bubbles! So try blowing bubbles our way.

If you’ve always wanted to try scuba diving – then jump in! Here’s your chance to breathe underwater in a fun, convenient session conducted in a pool, or any pool-like body of water.

Whether you watch the short PADI Discover Scuba video, or are briefed with the Discover Scuba Diving Flip Chart, you’ll enter the water ready for your scuba adventure. After you and your instructor strap on your scuba gear, you’ll have the chance to dive down to 6 metres/20 feet.

As soon as you Discover Scuba, you’re on your way to an internationally recognized certification. That’s because you may learn skills from the PADI Open Water Diver course during your Discover Scuba adventure. If you and your instructor elect to practice these skills, they may be credited to the PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver certifications.

What does all that mean? Go diving, practice some skills with your instructor, get a head start on your PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver certification!

To go on your Discover Scuba adventure, you must at least be 10 years or older and complete the Discover Scuba Statement (which includes a medical questionnaire).

When you discover scuba diving, you discover excitement and adventure – freedom and serenity. Nothing compares to the "weightless" exhilaration of breathing underwater. Only a diver knows the feeling!

The PADI Discover Scuba Diving program lets you experience the thrill of diving under the supervision of a PADI Instructor in ideal conditions, such as those found at a resort. During your adventure, you’ll master some basic concepts and scuba skills before heading off on an open water dive.

Your open water dive takes you as deep as 12 metres/40 feet! (Of course this depends on where you dive.) The Discover Scuba Diving experience is a great way to get a head start on your PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver certification. That’s because the skills you complete during your adventure may credit these certification levels. All you have to do is complete a Student Diver Record and Referral Form, which documents your achievement, and bring it to any PADI Dive Center or Resort to continue where you left off.

To participate in the Discover Scuba Diving experience, you must be at least 10 years old and complete the Discover Scuba Statement (which includes a medical questionnaire).
