What are the age limits for PADI Discover Scuba?

Minimum 10 years old. There is no maximum age for scuba diving as long as you are of reasonable health and fitness.

Do I need to be able to swim?

No you don’t, but you do need to feel comfortable (not afraid) in the water.

How many dives will I do?

Two dives.

The first dive will be in the swimming pool (your Instructor may finish this dive in the ocean if you make good progress in the pool). The second dive will be in the ocean.

How deep will I dive?

Your maximum depth will be 12 meters (40 ft).

What will I see?

The great thing about taking Discover Scuba in Bali is that there is so much marine life. You will see many different kinds of colourful fish and corals. The fish will be almost close enough to touch.

If you choose to take your Discover Scuba dive in Tulamben you will dive at a World War Two wreck. What an amazing experience! Your friends will hardly believe it.

Whichever dive site you choose you will see incredible marine life when you take Discover Scuba here in Bali.

Who will I be diving with?

For safety reasons we limit the maximum number of Discover Scuba participants to 3 students with each Instructor. If you come with a friend or family member you can dive together in one group with your Instructor. If you come alone we will try to join you with another one or two divers. It’s much more fun to dive with buddies. On all Discover Scuba programs at Bali Scuba you can be assured that one of our experienced PADI Instructors will be beside you at all times.

Can I book Discover Scuba for just one person?

No problem.

What days do you run the Discover Scuba program?

Every day.

Will I receive a certificate after completion?

You will receive a PADI Discover Scuba certificate of completion. You can share it with family and friends to show them what an awesome experience you had.

Will I be a certified scuba diver?

No you won’t. This PADI Discover Scuba program gives you a chance to try diving for fun. To become a fully certified scuba diver you will need to get your PADI licence by taking the 3-4 day PADI Open Water Diver course
