PADI Discover Scuba Diving on House Reef
The dive is on our House Reef
Diving options for non certified divers @ Maafushi Dive
For non-certified divers we run a PADI Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) program. This program permits someone who has never dived before to try out scuba diving under the direct supervision of a PADI instructor. The DSD session includes a brief theoretical introduction to diving safety and equipment as well as a skill practice session in shallow water after which the participant actually goes on a real scuba dive.
The cost of the DSD program is 55 US$ per person
These programs run in conjunction with our afternoon diving trips. We ask that participants be at the dive centre at 01:30pm to fill out their registration forms, to try on equipment and to participate in the theory segment of the program.
The formal bit - Once we’ve welcomed you at the dive centre we’ll ask you to fill in a Discover Scuba Diving registration form and try on some diving gear for proper fit. Thereafter your instructor will give you a briefing on how to dive safely as well as explain to you how your equipment works and what sort of skill you’ll be learning underwater.
Things start to get better - Soon we’ll be leaving the classroom behind us and heading out by boat to a shallow sandy area of the lagoon. Here in very shallow water we’ll help you to master a few basic skills that everyone participating in scuba diving should be comfortable with. Please try to focus on what your instructor is trying to show you and don’t be too distracted by all the fish!
This is what you’ve been looking for – Finally, after a short trip by boat to a nearby reef, you and your instructor enter the water to enjoy a real dive in the Maldives. It takes a few moments to get familiar with your surroundings but once you’ve settle into a comfortable diving pattern you really start to appreciate how amazing the underwater world is! Relax, breathe deeply and slowly and enjoy the ride. You’ll be surprised how fast the time flies by as you’re “flying underwater”.
