Discover Scuba Diving DSD – Scuba Diving Lessons for Beginners – An ideal day trip from Kota Kinabalu.
It could not be easier to try Scuba Diving and within the same few hours see the beauty of the underwater world in a safe, warm paradise location.
Our Island based PADI 5 Star Dive Centre in the The Tunku Abdul Rahman Park is ideally suited to beginner divers providing shallow, sandy confined water environments which slope to slightly deeper coral reef habitats.
The PADI Discover Scuba Diving program introduces people to scuba diving in a highly supervised and relaxed manner.
It dispels common misconceptions about scuba by letting individuals try it for themselves.
Under the guidance of a PADI professional, new divers learn basic safety concepts, put on equipment and swim around underwater in a closely supervised environment.
After trying scuba, many new divers may decide to repeat the experience. If not immediately, then on other occasions or in different areas. Others will choose to pursue certification by enrolling in a PADI Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver course.
When certain requirements are met, new divers may earn credit toward PADI Scuba Diver and Open Water Diver certification.
Our half day program competes before lunch time so you can spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing on the tropical beaches. Alternatively we can take you on an additional pleasure dive to a maximum depth of 12m with and instructor in the afternoon as part of the full day program.
You don’t have to book the afternoon dive, “try before you buy” if you get the dive bug you can decide on the day.
