PADI Discover Scuba Diving

Have you always wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater?  If you want to try scuba diving, but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, PADI's 1-day Discover Scuba Diving course is for you!  We also arrange these days upon request, so if you don't see any upcoming courses listed, simply give us a call to book your Discover Scuba Diving Experience Day!



We take you diving! If you're short on time and/or just want to try diving before committing to a full Open Water Course, Discover Scuba Diving is an introductory experience that allows you to see what diving is all about! 



  • An introduction and explanation of the basic principles and theory behind diving
  • Dive briefing and skill development session with your PADI instructor
  • Two instructor-led guided dives in real open water (not a swimming pool)
  • Discover Scuba Diving certificate


The Discover Scuba Diving day costs $225 and includes one day tuition, two guided dives, full equipment rental and PADI DSD certificate.



Discover Scuba Diving is a one-day experience day.  Generally we will start these days at 8am or 9am and finish around 2pm to 3pm.  We recommend bringing something to eat and plenty of water to drink in between dives.  You'll also need your swimmers/bathing suit and a towel.  Sunscreen and other forms of sun protection (hat, clothes) are also recommended.



The knowledge development portion of the course is conducted at the Dive Centre. We'll then head off to one of the following dive sites: Clovelly pool, Camp Cove or Gordons Bay.  A description of all the dive sites can be found at our diving in Sydney page.
