The PADI Discover Scuba Diving program gives you a quick and easy tryout to become a diver for a day and see how much you like it.
Swimming proficiency is not required for this limited try-dive. You can learn to dive in a swimming pool or at the Pattaya Islands.
You will learn how to wear and use the scuba equipment and get a short concise introduction to the basic safe diving skills.
When you are comfortable and confident in a shallow depth underwater, your instructor will lead you to deeper water for the first time to explore the tropical fishes swimming around the underwater reefs.
The maximum depth allowed for this PADI DSD Pattaya program is 12 meters. Our PADI scuba school can credit the one day instructor supervised discover program towards your full international certification open water license.
There are no specific qualifying requirements for participants to try the PADI DSD experiment.
From the age of 10 years, anyone in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the open water can take part in the lessons and enjoy this one day scuba experience program.
Your level of comfort underwater, along with the discretion of your instructor guide, determines how deep you go down. However the maximum depth you can go during this tryout for novices is twelve meters. We must also point out that there are a few other limitations to the introductory course.

The resort course begins by completing the mandatory registration form and participant statement. The participant brochure is a manual booklet required for the experience but is not a license to dive independently of instruction.
PADI paperwork provides valuable information about your medical suitability to participate in the discovery program. You are given a brief knowledge and safety review flip chart or cue card session and then learn how to scuba.
After the discover scuba diving briefing you practice the basic lessons for beginners in a shallow body of water. When you are relaxed and breathing comfortably it is time to go diving directly supervised by your qualified instructor.
What is surprising and unbelievable for most first time divers in the PADI discover program is that you learn how easy it is to breathe while submerged underwater using modern scuba equipment. You get the opportunity to determine whether you really enjoy it without plunging into for the full course.
If you have limited time we can also conduct the half day discovery experience in a swimming pool. The DSD program of two dives in open water from the dive boat takes one full day to complete.
The dive shop provides you with all the appropriate diver equipment that you need for the course. You learn how to use basic dive gear including a mask and snorkel, your buoyancy controller, the air tank and regulator, instrumentation gauges, wet suit, and weight system.
There is no need to panic - your dive leader oversees the gear operation while you are submerged underwater.
