What is a DSD?

A DSD is a single dive experience for novices without any experience of scuba diving, also known as a try dive. After learning some basic scuba theory, equalisation techniques to keep ears comfortable, signals for communication and equipment use on
land/boat. You will begin your DSD in very shallow water (deep enough to to stand up) close to the sandy beach to practice a few safety drills with your PADI instructor before then heading off for a shallow dive exploring the local reef.

You will be amazed by the beautiful and abundant marine life we can find in shallow water.

The DSD is a fast way to discovering whether or not you wish to carry on toward gaining your scuba certification and to find and photograph marine fish and reef.

Who does Discover scuba dive?

Divers on boat give turtle signal after seeing one on their diveFor those travellers who do not have so much time to devote three or four days for diving or training a DSD can be conducted in one dive trip, roughly half day on our boat from 12:00 until 17:00.

Or for those on a financial budget  as a DSD costs about a quarter of the cost to get certified open water diver.

A memorable experience to share with friends and family one afternoon.

We can take upto 4 divers with our experienced instructors. We can easily accommodate larger groups with more of our staff in attendance.
