DISCOVER SCUBA Discover life underwater.

PADI Discover Scuba® Diving Experience

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, Discover Scuba will let you try scuba to see if you like it. At Oceandivers we run Discover Scuba sessions almost every Tuesday evening in the National Aquatic Centre, Blanchardstown.  We meet at 7.00pm and the pool sessions finishes at 10.00pm. Book your place on one of our DISCOVER SCUBA sessions here.

While not an actual scuba certification, during the Discover Scuba Diving experience you'll learn how to use scuba equipment in the shallow pool, go through some basic skills and then you move to the amazing 5 meter diving pool where the real fun begins! Watch our short video and see how much fun you can have:

The Fun Part

There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little getting used to but after a few minutes of awestruck wonder, most participants realise how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge for Oceandivers is coaxing Discover Scuba Diving participants out of the water when the program is over. The fun part? It's all fun! We go at your pace and those first feelings of apprehension quickly drift away into pure joy!

What You Learn

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:

  • Learn what wearing scuba equipment feels like and how easy it is to move around underwater while wearing it
  • Find out what it's like to breathe underwater and learn whether you can be comfortable there
  • Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course when you take the next step

The Scuba Gear You Use

All the equipment you will need is included in a Discover Scuba Diving experience. You'll use all the basic scuba gear including a mask and snorkel, fins, a shorty wetsuit, 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. 

The Learning Materials You Need To Bring

Just your willingness and undivided attention plus your normal togs and towel.


To take participate in the Discover Scuba Diving program you must be at least 11 years old.
