DISCOVER SCUBA DIVING Discover life underwater.

The PADI Discover Scuba Diving Experience with DIVE WIMBLEDON

The PADI Discover Scuba Diving course is a 2 hour 'taster' try dive. This is a good option for those who are undecided about learning to dive as it gives your child the opportunity to experience breathing underwater in very shallow depths without committing to a full PADI Open Water certification course. If you know your child would like to learn to dive there is no need to complete the PADI Discover Scuba Diving course and they can go straight on to the PADI Junior Open Water Referral course which will save them days in the classroom on your holiday or the full PADI Junior Open Water Diver course.

Your Next Adventure

Alternatively they can skip the Discover Scuba Diving course and go straight to either of these courses if they prefer.
