Have you ever wondered what it's like to breathe underwater? If you want to find out but aren't quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Scuba Discovery Diving will let you try scuba to see if you like it. REMOTE AREA DIVE offer a version of this program, either in a pool or other body of water. You might try it close to home or even if you are on vacation in Townsville. While not an actual scuba certification, during the Scuba DiscoveryDiving experience you'll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.
There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realise how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge for REMOTE AREA DIVE is coaxing Scuba Discovery Diving participants out of the water when the program is over. The fun part? It's all fun! Plus, you can get credit! If your Scuba Discovery Scuba Diving program includes an actual scuba dive in open water, your experience may count toward an Open Water Diver certification, putting you a step ahead of the game when you decide to go for it.
You learn the basics you need to dive under the direct supervision of a dive Professional. One thing you'll learn is that you really can breathe underwater and whether you like doing that or not. You will:
Learn what wearing scuba equipment feels like and how easy it is to move around underwater while wearing it
Find out what it's like to breathe underwater and learn whether you can be comfortable there
Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course when you take the next step
All the equipment you will need is included in a Scuba Discovery Diving experience. You'll use all the basic scuba gear including a mask and snorkel, fins, a wetsuit, a buoyancy compensating jacket (BCD) that carries your weights and scuba tank, a scuba regulator to breathe from and instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply.
