Awesome Josh started his diving adventure, starting with a Discover Scuba Divers Course!! 😍

The Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) course is an introductory program designed for individuals who want to experience scuba diving for the first time before committing to a full certification course. It's often referred to as a "try dive" or "resort course" and is an excellent way to get a taste of the underwater world without having to complete the full Open Water Diver certification.

During a Discover Scuba Diving experience, participants typically receive a brief orientation to scuba equipment and basic diving principles. This usually includes an overview of how to use scuba gear, basic underwater communication signals, and safety guidelines.

After the orientation, participants are taken into shallow water, such as a pool or confined area in the ocean, under the close supervision of a certified scuba instructor. Here, they have the opportunity to practice basic scuba skills, such as breathing underwater, clearing a regulator (the mouthpiece you breathe from), and equalizing pressure in the ears.

Once participants are comfortable and confident in the water, the instructor may lead them on a short guided dive in a controlled environment, such as a shallow reef or dive site with calm conditions. This allows participants to experience the thrill of diving and observe marine life firsthand under the guidance of an experienced instructor.

The Discover Scuba Diving course is not a certification course, so participants do not receive a certification upon completion. However, it can serve as a stepping stone for those who wish to pursue further scuba training and certification in the future.

It's essential to note that the Discover Scuba Diving experience does not provide participants with the same level of knowledge and skills as a full scuba certification course like the Open Water Diver course. If you decide to pursue scuba diving further after the Discover Scuba Diving experience, you will typically need to complete the full Open Water Diver certification course to dive independently.
