Discover Scuba Diving for Beginners

For the complete beginner we offer sufficient tuition to enable you to experience this thrilling sport. We follow recognized training guidelines and you will be under the supervision of a qualified instructor.

We start with a lesson for about 20 minutes explaining the basic essentials of diving and use of scuba equipment. After you have kitted up in full equipment, it is into the water to put theory into practice. Simple exercises such as mask clearing, buoyancy control and demand valve clearing are all practiced. Having mastered these skills we then continue with a dive made in shallow water for your safety, so that you can experience the underwater world and the feeling of being weightless. While on the dive we take photos and video that you have after your dive! You also get the Discover Scuba Diving certificate at the end as a reward for participating.

We have two dive sites for the Discover Scuba Diving and snorkeling. Agia Triada Beach is an easy dive site ideal for your first experience. When you complete the first dive, you can continue your experience with a second open water dive at a Agia Triada Reef diving into an impressive open swim through!

After a briefing dive again into a beautiful area with great rock formations where you will see some different species of marine life. You will reach a maximum depth of 12 meters, and whilst this might sounds a lot deeper, water is so lovely and clear, you will not notice the increase in depth, but you will be thrilled with the views you have of the open sea. Octopus, sea urchin, different kind of bream, scorpion fish, mullets, shells and a lot more, is the marine life you can see while you do the Discover Scuba Diving.
