For those of you who would just like to try diving out, perhaps as a test before getting your certification, then the PADI Discover Scuba Diving Experience is for you. After a short briefing and pool session when you are introduced to the basic diving skills, you embark on 2 ocean dives up to 12m deep under the direct supervision of an Ocean Tribe PADI Instructor. The dives from your PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience can also then be credited towards the PADI Scuba Diver or PADI Open Water Diver courses, meaning you have already got a head start on your certification.
The experience can be as short as 1½ hours if you opt for the single lagoon dive or 5 hours if you want to visit the main reef and complete two dives under the supervision of a PADI Instructor.

Before you go in the water there is a short eLearning section for you to complete. This covers the knowledge briefing and gives you a quick introduction to scuba diving and safety concepts. This will be elaborated on by your PADI Instructor during the try diving experience.
Before we take you into the ocean we want to teach you a few basic scuba skills to safely be able to use the scuba equipment. This is done in a pool environment where you can stand up if you have any problems and there are no other factors such as surge or currents to distract you.
Your Ocean Tribe PADI Instructor will demonstrate the skills to you and then get you to do the skill until you are comfortable with it. Once you are comfortable using the scuba then its time to go on a real dive.
Once you have done the basic skills in the pool your PADI Instructor will take you on a short boat ride to a sheltered local reef. You will then go on one or two underwater tour dives where you can experience the magic of the underwater world whilst breathing from scuba.
If you enjoy the experience and wish to continue then the PADI Discover Scuba Diving can be used as credit towards the PADI Scuba Diver and PADI Open Water Diver certification.
Where Will I Dive?
Depending on which option you have selected your PADI Discover Scuba Diving try dive experience will take place either on a single dive inside the Diani lagoon. Or for those who want to experience the main coral reefs of Diani then there is the 2 dive option which is done outside of the lagoon on the selected dive sites of the day.
