Cebu is a year round diving destination and with warm clear waters has something to offer all levels of experience. Beginners and novices will be thrilled by the shallow reefs and myriad of fish life on offer and more experienced divers will relish the chance to dive on wrecks and see larger fish species during exciting drift dives along the northern walls of the island.
Have you always wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you want to try scuba diving, but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is for you and a holiday on Cebu is the best opportunity to do it!
PADI (Professional Association of Scuba Instructors) are the World’s leading dive training organization and their Cebu dive shops offer this program either off a beach or from a dive boat. While not a scuba certification course, the Discover Scuba Diving Experience is a quick and easy half day introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world and at the same time see an amazing array of marine life.
You learn about the basic safety guidelines, equipment and skills needed to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional Instructor. You will practice these and then, accompanied by Instructors and Assistants, you and your family and friends will get to have fun using newly found techniques to swim around and explore in the sea.
Instruction and teaching materials are available in a range of languages. The Dive Centers have air-conditioned classrooms with both direct beach and boat access.
Each Discover Scuba Diving course comes with personalized certificate as a special souvenir of your first journey in the underwater world.
