This educational and fun introductory programme by PADI is recommended to those, who want to try, but aren’t quite ready or are time limited to take a plunge into a full certification course.
Usually, you'll start this experience with the registration and equipment fitting sessions (selecting correct diving equipment for you). Followed by an instructor briefing on the basic elements of scuba equipment and how it works, breathing underwater and underwater signals.
The theory session is followed by a 15-minute training dive in Mellieha Bay (just in front of the premises) where you will have the opportunity to learn and practice some basic scuba diving skills with your Instructor.
Having completed your skills and theory, you'll then (weather permitting) be collected by our own boat and head off to a shallow bay. On entering the water you'll have a tremendous dive around the colorful coastline of Malta!
This is a great experience for the whole family and you can continue straight onto your PADI Open Water Diver Course (talk to our staff). And as an incentive, those who choose this option, will not be charged for PADI Discover Scuba Diving Experience!
All courses at Seashell Dive Centre are conducted by the fully-trained PADI professional Instructors.
The activity will last between 3-4 hours.
Please note that in winter the course is taught from the beach.
Please note you are not allowed to fly for up to 24 hours after your last dive.
