Discover Scuba Diving – Ocean Experience

First-time (non-certified) divers will experience the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program, which covers the fundamental rules and guidelines of safe scuba diving. This experience can also be applied toward your PADI Open Water Certification.

Divers will enjoy an interesting site and marine biology orientation. Dive Kauai’s detailed site briefings include an explanation of all aspects of the dive such as depth, topography, marine life and safety procedures. Their marine biology briefings include fish identification along with interesting facts about endemic and rare species that may be encountered at each site.

After a detailed, hands-on orientation, divers will enter shallow water and practice four basic scuba-related skills. These skills are designed to build confidence and to show you just how easy scuba diving really is. After satisfactorily completing the skills portion of your lesson, you are qualified to dive to a maximum depth of 40 feet under the direct supervision of our PADI instructors.

The entire process for the Discover Scuba Dive – Ocean Experience from arrival to departure is approximately 2.5-3 hours.  The actual time spent diving will be on average from 20-40 min depending on how quickly you breathe through the air.
