PADI Discover Scuba Diving in Belize with Splash’s beginner’s intro dive

The PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience or DSD, is an introductory experience to scuba diving that will initially be conducted in confined water by our experienced Instructors. Once you have mastered the basic motor skills to use scuba and to dive safely, our Instructors will take you on a closely supervised dive to one of the coral reef systems and dive sites at Placencia. Here’s you’ll see some of the healthiest reef systems in Belize, and an abundance of fish and corals.

No prior scuba diving experience is necessary to enroll in this program, you simply sit through an Instructor led presentation that covers basic dive safety and enjoyment tips, then enjoy trying out the equipment and learning a few underwater skills (such as how breathing underwater and how to clear your mask underwater if it leaks a bit)  Once you are comfortable your instructor will lead you into deeper water to do some underwater sightseeing and practicing underwater buoyancy.  After lunch on the caye,  Splash Dive Center will take you to do a dive boat in deeper water.

Discover Scuba Diving is a full day experience conducted out on the Belize cayes and is open to anyone from the ages of 10 years old with no adverse medical conditions. As we take a maximum of 2 participants to one of our Instructors, you can be sure you will get individual attention while enjoying the beauty of Placencia below the water. At Splash Dive Center we pride ourselves on offering personal and custom tuition, so if you desire you could repeat another try dive in your time with us.  In fact many of our DSD participants often want to continue on straight to the PADI Open Water Diver courses

Our guides are registered with the Belizean Tour Operators association, and are knowledgeable with the local reef systems and aquatic life in Placencia, so your ‘Discover Scuba Diving’ experience will not just be fun, but educational as well.
