About Discover Scuba Diving
The Discover Scuba Diving program is for those who are not certified but would like to try out scuba diving. It does not certify you but it will allow you to dive with our instructors on a shallow dive after which you will receive a resort diver card. The first part which is in the pool starts at 12:30pm on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. You will meet with our instructor and they will go over basic information with you about scuba diving.
You will get into UNEXSO's swimming pool where they will teach you how to use the diving equipment and you will also learn skills that you will need for your shallow water dive. After a 10 minute break you then take a short boat ride to the dive site where you will experience your first dive in 20 - 40 ft of water with your instructor. An instructor will be on-hand to film your experience and the DVD will be available for purchase after your course is complete.
