Discover Scuba Diving Key Largo

The Discover Scuba Diving course is one of our favorites. It’s a pretty cool moment watching someone take their first breathe underwater. As certified divers we have all completed this course. Many of us have the same story… Did a Discover Scuba course in the Florida Keys and I’ve been hooked ever since. Or in our case, completed the course and it changed our path in life!

Course Description

The Discover Scuba Diving course enables you to try out scuba diving for a day. There is a portion of classroom knowledge reviews, pool session, and then open water dives on the reef. This course is real scuba diving. After completing the knowledge and pool session you will go out on the boat for an afternoon dive charter and dive the reef with the certified divers. If you have always wanted to try scuba diving this will probably be the highlight of your vacation.

Your day starts in the morning with a knowledge review. Your instructor will explain the core fundamentals of scuba diving. Safety guidelines, scuba diving gear, and basic techniques will be discussed. You will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions and discuss any concerns you may have. Class sizes are small and it is a very laid back super fun experience.

Once in the pool you will get to put on a set of scuba gear that we provide. Then you will be given a chance to underwater in the pool and take your first couple of breathes. A series of required skills will be demonstrated and practiced. You need to be able to clear your mask in case water gets inside. Regulator recovery will also be practiced. The gauges on your equipment will be explained, you will do some swimming in the pool, and then its off to the boat.
