Have you ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you want to find out but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving will let you try scuba to see if you like it.

Reef Divers offer a version of this program, either in a pool or other body of water. You might try it close to home or even if you are on vacation in South Australia. While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.

There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realise how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge for Reef Divers is coaxing Discover Scuba Diving participants out of the water when the program is over. The fun part? It’s all fun! Plus, you can get credit! What You Learn:
You learn the basics you need to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. One thing you’ll learn is that you really can breathe underwater and whether you like doing that or not.

You will:
Learn what wearing scuba equipment feels like and how easy it is to move around underwater while wearing it
Find out what it’s like to breathe underwater and learn whether you can be comfortable there
Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course when you take the next step

The Scuba Gear You Use:
All the equipment you will need is included in a Discover Scuba Diving experience. You’ll use all the basic scuba gear including a mask and snorkel, fins, a wetsuit, a buoyancy compensating jacket (BCD) that carries your weights and scuba tank, a scuba regulator to breathe from and instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply.
The Learning Materials You Need To Bring:
Just your willingness and undivided attention.

Prerequisites:
To take participate in the Discover Scuba Diving program you must be at least 12 years old.
Your Next Adventure:
Once you complete a Discover Scuba Diving program, you’ll want to check out: Scuba Diver and Open Water Diver certification courses.

The PADI Skin Diver Course with REEF DIVERS:
Learn to snorkel and skin dive!
Explore the underwater world from the surface.
The PADI Skin Diver certification helps you get – and keep – your fins wet. While snorkeling is limited to peering down from the surface, skin divers generally venture further than snorkelers, making frequent surface dives to interact with aquatic life, up close and personal.

What You Learn:
The course provides basic information on skin diving equipment, dive science, the environment, problem management and safe skin diving practices.
Inwater training includes various techniques for donning and adjusting equipment, entering the water, checking buoyancy, surface swimming, clearing water from your snorkel and performing effortless surface dives.

Prerequisites:
To enroll in the PADI Skin Diver course, you must be:
at least twelve years old,
comfortable in the water.

The Fun Part:
The best part is learning to use your mask, fins and snorkel so you don’t miss a moment of underwater action. Whether you’re looking at your local freshwater lake or the big blue ocean, you’ll have a new perspective on just about every body of water. You can use your new aquatic skills to explore a brand new world during an optional open water dive. And, when you’ve finished the course, you’ll get a PADI Skin Diver certification card for your efforts and be ready for your next adventure.

The Gear You Use:
The PADI Skin Diver course teaches you to use basic snorkeling equipment including a mask, snorkel, fins, buoyancy control device (BCD), exposure protection like a wet suit and dive weights as needed.
Ask us what equipment you’ll use in the course. We have everything you need at REEF DIVERS.

The Learning Materials You Need:
Before your PADI Skin Diver course you will be supplied with the PADI Discover Snorkeling guide. The guide illustrates various techniques and background knowledge that will be put into action during your course.

The PADI Scuba Diver Course with REEF DIVERS:
Short on time and have the urge to become a certified diver? The PADI Scuba Diver certification might just be for you. This course requires less time than the PADI Open Water Diver course, covering only the first three of five sections of knowledge development, the first three of five pool sessions, and the first two of four open water training dives, resulting in a limited certification. Particularly if you expect to go scuba diving primarily in the company of a dive guide or if you have limited time to devote to scuba certification, consider becoming a PADI Scuba Diver. This certification allows for dive experience and is a good warm-up for the Open Water Diver course, if that’s your ultimate goal.

PADI Scuba Divers are qualified to:
Dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Divemaster, Assistant Instructor or Instructor to a maximum depth of 12 metres / 40 feet
Obtain air fills, rent or purchase scuba equipment and participate in other diving activities as long as they have the required supervision
Continue their dive training and complete PADI Open Water Diver certification and other courses such as Project AWARE and equipment specialty courses

The Fun Part:
The Scuba Diver certification opens the door on the underwater world for anyone who’s thought that a course would take too long or be too difficult. Upgrade to Open Water Diver whenever you want! With less time than the Scuba Diver course takes, you can make the jump to Open Water Diver certification and start scuba diving independently whenever time allows or you’re up for more. This course is perfect for the person that has no time and is about to head away on a holiday where the dive will be guided by a Divemaster.

What You Learn:
All the basics of scuba diving through knowledge development, a set of scuba skills in the pool that you’ll use again during open water dives, and an appreciation for the underwater world that will keep you coming back for more bottom time every chance you get! During the course you’ll cover material and practice skills related to topics such as:
Buoyancy skills including comfortable ascents and descents, and breathing underwater.
Staying warm underwater, streamlining your swimming skills and buddy diving techniques.
Diving environments and aquatic life you’re likely to encounter.
Preventing common problems underwater.

The Scuba Gear You Use:
You’ll use all the basic scuba gear and some of it may be included with your course. You may want to invest in your own mask, snorkel and fins since these personal items are a lot more fun to use when they fit properly. A buoyancy compensating jacket that holds your scuba tank, a scuba regulator that delivers air, a weight system and instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply will also be used. You will wear a scuba wetsuit to enhance the comfort and relaxation during the PADI Scuba Diver Course.

The Learning Materials You Need:
PADI offers a variety of home-study materials for the Scuba Diver – book and video on DVD package or a multimedia DVD. PADI’s Scuba Diver materials provide a comprehensive overview of basic scuba diving skills, terminology and safety procedures. For each concept you’ll read a description and watch a video demonstration. Once you’re a certified diver, use the course materials as a reference guide for future diving adventures.
For all your learning materials and equipment, contact REEF DIVERS.

Prerequisites:
To take this course, you must be:
15 years old (or 12 years old for Junior Scuba Diver certification).
