What to expect in your Discover Scuba Dive experience

Orientation & Knowledge Development

Your instructor will introduce you to the basic concepts including the effects of pressure and how to equalize your ears, the importance of correct breathing techniques and why you should never hold your breath.

The Instructor led knowledge development session along with the paperwork will take approximately 45mins to complete.

Shallow & Confined Water training

Once introducing you to the scuba equipment, we will start in water that is deep enough for you to stand in with your head out of the water. To begin with, we will ask you to simply breathe through the regulator and when you are ready we will ask you to kneel down under the water. At this time, we can start to practice equalizing your ears.

Your Instructor will demonstrate each skill, then you will copy and perfect the skills.

The other skills you will be mastering will be:

  • Regulator clearing

  • Regulator recovery

  • Mask clearing

  • Inflate and deflate the BCD at the surface (Buoyancy Control Device)

Open Water Dive

After satisfactorily completing your dive skills with the instructor you should be feeling more comfortable breathing underwater and are ready for the next part of your experience. 
Starting from the shallow water we will slowly guide you around the Coral reef, allowing you to get comfortable with your new found skill whilst enjoying the underwater life koh Tao has to offer.
