Discover Scuba Diving

The PADI Discover Scuba Diving course is an experience program which allows you to try scuba diving without having to commit to a full length course. It is especially good for individuals who are unsure if they will like scuba diving, or on vacation and do not have the time to enroll in a course.  It enables you to dive up to a depth of 12 meters / 40 feet under the direct supervision of a PADI Divemaster, Assistant Instructor or Instructor.


Prerequisites

In order to enroll in the PADI Discover Scuba Diving course, you need to be at least 10 years old and be comfortable in water.


Course Structure

The PADI Discover Scuba Diving course is made up of three sections – knowledge development, confined water training and an optional open water dive.

During the knowledge development section of the course, you will participate in a discussion with your instructor, and will become familiarized with the equipment, techniques and hand signals you will use during your course.

The confined water training will take part in a swimming pool or confined open water environment. You will be required to have your own mask, fins and snorkel for this. During the confined water training, you will be introduced to various skills that you need to use during your experience.

If you opt to undergo the optional open water dive, you will go out scuba diving in the sea with your instructor. In addition to completing the same skills you learned during your confined water training, you will also tour the dive site and become more familiar with some of Qatar’s aquatic creatures. You’re going to love it!

And, if you decide you would like to continue your scuba diving adventures, you can use your Discover Scuba Diving experience to credit towards your PADI Open Water Diver Course! 


Required Equipment

You will be required to have your own mask, fins and snorkel for the duration of the course. If you will be diving in the sea we would also recommend that you have a suitable exposure suit – a wetsuit during the winter months to protect your body from the cold and a lycra, or skin suit for the summer months to protect your body from jellyfish stings and scrapes.
