Our snorkel trips and PADI scuba diving certification courses are open to all ages, starting at age 10. We require everyone be of average fitness and health.

PADI (the Professional Association of Diving Instructors), is the largest diver organization in the world and PADI diver certifications are recognized worldwide.
PADI courses are set apart from their competitors by their superb diver education techniques and well designed course materials which make learning to dive easy, safe and fun.
We take no short cuts with our training, and you will be trained to the highest standards by our experienced staff, all of whom are experienced PADI instructors passionate about the sport of diving and about your safety and enjoyment.
We progress at your own pace with flexible scheduling to make the best use of your precious vacation time.
Class sizes are small, often with just one or two people (you and your buddy!) at no extra cost to you. Family groups are especially welcome at Discovery and private trips can easily be arranged.
All of the rental equipment required is included in the price of the course. There are no hidden costs at Discovery.
We give you the best available skills, knowledge, experience and time. Many people mistakenly believe that learning to scuba dive means spending hours in a classroom while everybody else is enjoying their vacation and having fun. This is simply not true! At Discovery we fully support PADI’s “Dive Today” philosophy which puts diving first.
After attending an equipment familiarization and safety briefing with your PADI Instructor, we take you diving. It’s as simple as that! You can be in the water DIVING for real under the watchful supervision of a PADI Instructor, in less than a couple of hours from the start. This is made possible by the enormous flexibility built into PADI diving courses. After all, diving is supposed to be about having fun and exploring the fascinating colorful and peaceful beauty of the underwater world, and you can’t do that in a classroom!
