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, Scuba Try It will let you try scuba to see if you like it. Try-it is usually about an hour, and a dive professional will be with you the entire time, helping you, making sure you’re comfortable and answering any questions you have. While not an actual scuba certification, during the Scuba Try It 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.
Then a Scuba Try-It is for you! Great idea for those kids interested in Scuba Camp, but want to try it first!
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:
All the equipment you will need is included in a Scuba Try It experience. You'll use all the basic scuba gear including a mask and snorkel, fins, 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.
To participate in the Scuba Try It program you must be at least 10 years old.
