Discover   Scuba Diving   program

While it is not a diving certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is a quick and easy introduction to what is needed to explore the undersea world. To enroll in a Discover Scuba Diving experience, you must be at least 10 years old. No prior experience with diving is necessary, but you must have reasonable physical health. During the dives we do underwater photos and videos that we give you for free. Are you ready to try it? Welcome to quality diving!

Ready to dive?

You’ll learn the basic safety guidelines and skills to dive with the supervision of a BARCELONA-DIVING professional. A Discover Scuba Diving Program follows the following steps:

1- Transfer to the Costa Brava (7 o'clock in the morning). We pick you up at the door of your accommodation and take you to the Costa Brava. At the end of the activity we return you to your accommodation. So you won’t have to take a taxi or public transport to reach a meeting point, much more comfortable for you!

We arrive at the Costa Brava at 08:30h approximately. We invite you to a coffee and something light to eat.

2- Explanation by the instructor of the basic concepts of diving (approximately 30 minutes).

3- Assembly of the equipment and put on the neoprene suit.

4- First dive: It is a shore dive, at a maximum depth of around 5 meters. Basic diving exercises are carried out to have more confidence and safety, and a submarine ride observing typical fauna of the Mediterranean Sea. The duration of the dive is between 40 and 50 minutes. During this dive in shallow waters with your dive instructor you will relax and get confidence to want to continue the program! You start to become a diver!

The shore dives are without a doubt the best options for someone who has never dived and we can even see more marine life than in the boat tours, which we advise against (people get dizzy and the descents to the bottom are very vertical, not helping too much to reduce the ear aches for people with difficulty in performing the maneuver to eliminate them). We recommend 100% shore dives! 

5- We rest 1 hour between dives in the same beach. We drink water and we can eat something light (fruit). 

6- Second dive: It is a shore dive. The depth of the second dive will depend on your feelings and comfort underwater, we adapt to each person! We usually descend between 6-12 meters in this second dive. The time of this second dive will be 40-50 minutes. We will reach an area with a lot of marine life and great bio-diversity. Your diving instructor who will always accompany you will teach you marine life, which you will then comment once the dive ends.

7- We can take a shower and go to eat. 

8- We return to Barcelona. Arrival in Barcelona: 16h approximately.

Our diving instructors will help you at all times and will make you underwater photos and small videos to remember. We will provide them for free.

DON'T YOU KNOW HOW TO SWIM VERY OR DO YOU THINK YOU CAN GET VERY NERVOUS WHEN YOU GO STRAIGHT INTO THE SEA?

We recommend our special activity consisting of a swimming pool dive and then a sea dive, a shore dive. This pac is perfect for you to be more relaxed during your first dive in the sea, practicing earlier in a swimming pool at our facilities on the Costa Brava.

We go out to dive from one person. If you have a companion that wants to come with you but not to dive is possible (check prices of this option).
