A quick and easy introduction by Diving sports Canada in Vancouver into what it takes to explore the underwater world. Although this is not a scuba certification course, you'll learn all the steps it takes to be a PADI certified diver.
The Discover Scuba is a great opportunity for any potential divers who aren't sure if SCUBA is for them. The Discover Scuba, or DSD, includes an in-person classroom orientation to go over some introductory scuba knowledge and familiarization with the gear we will be using. This is followed by a pool session where we go over some basic scuba skills and practice swimming underwater! We include all the equipment including masks and snorkels for the DSD, although students who wish to proceed to the full open water course will need to purchase their own for the remaining pool and ocean dives. Students who decide to sign up for the full Open Water course within 1 week of their DSD with Diving Sports will receive 10% off the course and 10% off their purchase of mask and snorkel!

Commitment to Safety and Enjoyment
At Diving Sports we believe in making sure all our students receive the highest quality instruction and customer service. We are in the business of training, mentoring, and supporting students to become safe, skillful and confident divers. We begin by scheduling our courses with the number of classes it typically takes most students to master the knowledge and skills, then adapt and tailor our schedule to fit our individual student’s needs. Our instructors are open and honest about your progress during each part of the course. Students may need to schedule additional pool or ocean training dives prior to certification. This ensures our students complete their courses with all the skills and knowledge they need to be safe and enjoy their future dives and courses. When you take a course with Diving Sports, you are welcomed into a passionate and inclusive community of divers eager to support your diving journey well beyond the duration of your class.
