The briefing is always given at the dive center by instructors or Discover Scuba leaders and the same dive professional(s) will join you for the dive activity.

Your professional dive guides will then show you how to get used to breathing using the scuba gear. Once in the water, there will be a few small exercises to make sure you are comfortable.

Went scuba diving for the first time and I felt really safe. The first hour consists of filling out paperwork and watching videos and trying on equipment. They gave us a water bottle as well which was really nice! I would say I’m more on the anxious side but I dived with Wata who was really nice. When I asked if we could go up we went up with no issues. If you feel too anxious to continue then they will let you sit in the car for the remainder of the trip while the rest go scuba diving. I recommend you try it though! It was really nice to see everything. I had a few issues but as long as you communicate you can resolve anything. We saw a few octopi and loads of fish which was amazing! I would probably do another discovery dive to get more comfortable with it but Wata and the rest of the team were really accommodating.

Very good first experience!! The instructor is very nice, she accompanied us from start to finish, explained everything to us from A to Z and was always there to reassure us. We took the 10€ option for photos and videos and we had about 70 photos and videos sent a few hours later and very qualitative. Great memory ! I recommend !
