PADI Discover Scuba Diving


Explore Koh Tao’s underwater world in just one day

If you want to try scuba diving, but aren’t quite ready to take a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is for you. It only takes one day and opens the door for you to explore the other two-thirds of our planet. You do not need any previous experience in diving as your Instructor will be right next to you the whole time, making sure you feel safe and have a great time discovering what scuba diving is all about. If you then wish to do more dives or become a PADI Open Water diver we offer you special discounts!

Discover Scuba Diving Itinerary

A full day of scuba diving

The goal of the one day Discover Scuba Diving program is for you to enjoy the beautiful underwater world to the fullest while feeling safe and relaxed. We dedicate the whole day to this experience to ensure that you know the basics of scuba diving and practised in the pool before we take you to the ocean.

Your day

08:30 to 09:30 | Meet your Instructor for a short theory session. You will learn the basic principles of scuba diving, some hand signals for communication underwater and the most important rules to guarantee your safety.

09:30 to 10:45 | Get your scuba gear ready and head to our diving pool. Take your first breaths underwater and learn a few basic scuba skills. Practice diving and familiarise yourself with the equipment you will be using.

10:45 to 11:55 | Lunch break

11:55 to 17:00 | Join our afternoon dive trip for 2 dives around Koh Tao to a maximum depth of 12m. Your Instructor will be right next to you for the whole time to ensure your safety.



 To participate in the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program you need to be 10 years of age or older. For younger divers have a look at our youth programs.


 Please read through the medical questionnaire carefully. If you have to answer any of the medical conditions with a “yes”, then you need to seek approval by a doctor prior to any in-water activities. As not all conditions can be cleared on Koh Tao we strongly recommend to see an approved doctor for diving medicine prior to your arrival.
