Mini Course Description

The PADI Discover Scuba Diving is a short course for non-certified divers. It is ideal for those who have tried scuba diving or for the first time. It’s a short course to establish the basic skills in the swimming pool and knowledge in the classroom for a dive to a maximum depth of 12 meters (40 feet) with the supervision of the Ankla Azul diving instructor. The program starts at 8 am with a 25 minutes video to follow up with a short underwater physics and equipment class. At approximately 10:30 am, we start with our swimming pool for required skills; at approximately 11:30 am, we had to do our pacific ocean dive. This course does not gain you any certifications. Nevertheless, it prepares you for the upcoming open water diver course program.
