This is the world’s most popular introduction to diving. If you want to give SCUBA diving a go but are unsure about committing to a full certification course, then sign up for a DSD. We will give you a brief orientation to the equipment, set it up for you, teach you basic skills in shallow water and then take you for a closely supervised dive in the swimming pool. This program gives you the chance to experience being and breathing underwater. So sign up for a DSD and experience the sensation of weightlessness that other divers can’t get enough of!

What is the minimum and maximum age to learn scuba diving?
Anyone who is 10 years and older, reasonably fit, comfortable in the water, and has a positive attitude and a willingness to learn can sign up for scuba diving.
Also, age is not a limiting factor for scuba diving as long as the individual is in good physical and mental health. However, some medical conditions associated with lung functions may prevent individuals of any age from diving, either temporarily or permanently. Scuba diving is a sport that can be enjoyed at any age, and many people continue diving well into their 70s and 80s.
Can non-swimmers go scuba diving?
YES! Non-swimmers who want to experience real-life powers like breathing underwater can enroll in a DSD program, where an experienced and qualified dive professional will accompany you
However, to be able to become a certified recreational diver, one must have basic swimming skills, and need not be an expert swimmer since basic swimming is a pre-requisite for the Open Water Diver Course.
How long does it take to become a certified scuba diver?
Becoming a certified Open Water Diver typically takes around 3 to 4 days, although the exact duration of the course depends on how quickly you develop your diving skills, comfort level, and confidence.
The training is skill-based, and your instructor will focus on helping you become a confident and comfortable diver rather than completing the course within a specific time frame. Your progress in developing your diving skills will determine the duration of the course.
Is Scuba Diving safe/dangerous?

What happens if I see a shark while scuba diving?
You'll know you've had a great day of diving if you encounter a shark.
Contrary to their aggressive and man-eating image portrayed by films, sharks are actually pretty cool creatures! As long as we maintain a safe distance while observing, and certain diving etiquettes, an encounter with a shark or sharks is completely safe.
What should I do if I feel panicked underwater?
If you feel panicked underwater, you should signal to your buddy or instructor, breathe slowly and deeply, and make a safe ascent to the surface.
The training provided to you before you submerge yourself is the key to minimising the chances of a panic situation arising, whether you're doing a course or a one-time diving experience (DSD).
How long is a scuba diving certificate valid?
