A litter bit about Discover Scuba
Commonly referred to as the “Resort Course”, the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program at the Original Akumal Dive Shop introduces people to scuba diving in a highly supervised yet relaxed manner under the experience and professional guidance of its staff instructors. New divers learn the basic safety concepts with a 20 minute audiovisual presentation in our classroom on how to put on their equipment and then swim around underwater in a closely supervised environment. The course is divided into three parts; academics, confined water (in Akumal Bay) and open water. During the academic segment, you learn basic scuba concepts including how to assembly your equipment and equalizing air spaces.
