Discover Scuba

The PADI Discover Scuba Diving program lets you experience the thrill of diving under the supervision of a PADI Professional in pool or pool-like conditions. During your adventure, you'll master some basic concepts and scuba skills

What do I need to start?
* Minimum age: 10
* A completed and signed Discover Scuba Diving brochure

What will I do?
When you participate in a Discover Scuba Diving program, you discover excitement and adventure - freedom and serenity. Nothing compares to the "weightless" exhilaration of breathing underwater. Only a diver knows the feeling!

How long will it take?
The experience will take about 2 1/2 hours.  First you're briefed with the Discover Scuba Diving Flip Charts and then you'll be in the water and enjoying your scuba adventure.

What will I need?
A sense of adventure.

How Much Does it Cost?
A Discover Scuba Diving Experience costs $20 per diver but the $20 will be discounted from your Confined Water Class fee when you sign up to get certified.  In addition, the Erie Community Center charges their normal day use fee.  If you have an annual pass or a punch card - they work too.

Where can I go from here?
As soon as you Discover Scuba Diving, you're on your way to an internationally recognized certification. That's because you may learn skills used in the PADI Open Water Diver course during your Discover Scuba Diving adventure. If you and your instructor elect to practice these skills, they may be credited toward the PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver certifications.

When Can I Start?
Erie Scuba does Discover Scuba Diving every other Tuesday evening in the Erie Community Center Pool.  Check out the dates here of contact Erie Scuba for the next date.
