Scuba diving for beginners


Discover Scuba Diving experience is the first and most basic PADI course on offer and is undoubtedly the best way to start your scuba diving adventure. This diving course for beginners is a fun and relaxing way of introducing yourself to the magnificent underwater world and absolutely no prior experience is necessary!


This PADI course consists of 3 elements:


  • Firstly you will take part in a fun 30 minute PADI theory session where your friendly and professional diving instructor will take you through the basic elements of scuba equipment, breathing underwater and underwater communication. Following this you will have to answer a set of 10 questions to ensure you have understood everything you need to know (don’t worry, our professional PADI Instructors are always on hand to help with any queries you have).
  • Once you have mastered the basic PADI theory, you are ready to get your equipment on and jump in the bay, where your instructor will teach you some basic scuba diving skills such as clearing water from your regulator, retrieving a lost regulator and clearing water from your mask.
  • Having completed your skills and theory it is now time to try scuba diving! Board our custom made diving boat (weather permitting) and travel to a nearby reef where you will have a tremendous open water dive around the colourful coastline of Malta. Look out for rays, octopus, silver bream, cuttlefish, moray eels, parrot fish, rainbow wrasse and many more varieties of marine life!

For those who become really hooked and want to take their dive training further, the PADI Scuba Diver course or the PADI Open Water course would be the perfect next step. If you chose to continue your scuba diving training with either one of these two courses, the PADI Discover Scuba Diving course will be given free of charge.


So bring your friends, neighbours, colleagues, children, parents and even adventurous grandparents and discover the best scuba diving for beginners!
