Course information:

The PADI Discover Scuba Diving program introduces people to scuba diving in a highly supervised and relaxed manner. It dispels common misconceptions about scuba by letting individuals try it for themselves. Under the guidance of a PADI professional, new divers learn basic safety concepts, put on equipment and swim around underwater in a closely supervised environment. The PADI Discover Scuba Diving program can take place in a swimming pool, protected confined open water and at an open water dive site such as Swanage Pier.


After trying scuba, many new divers may decide to repeat the experience, if not immediately, then on other occasions or in different locations. Others may choose to pursue certification by enrolling in a PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver course.
If all course requirements are met during your Discover Scuba Diving experience, credit can be carried forward to your PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver course. Please ask us for details.

VERY IMPORTANT: MEDICAL CLEARANCE FOR DIVING.

Please click here to review and download the PADI Medical Statement
Required for all PADI in water courses. You will be required to sign this. Any 'YES' answer would also require a doctors signature before any in water training can start. For this reason if you do require a doctors signature it is best to download the form and get this signed before arriving to start your course. We suggest you start with your own GP and if they are not happy to sign it, then a diving medical by a qualified diving doctor may be required. If you do require help or more information regarding this please do not hesitate to contact me. FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY, NO IN WATER ACTIVITIES CAN TAKE PLACE UNTIL THESE REQUIREMENTS ARE COMPLETED.
It is rarely the case that diving is not possible.
