Welcome to beautiful Chania, where we offer you the opportunity to do a half-day PADI Scuba Diver trial! Thanks to the fins on your feet, the mask on your face and the tanks on your back, you'll finally discover the unique feeling of swimming freely like a fish, exploring the local underwater fauna and flora, and you'll also learn valuable knowledge during short theory lessons. What are you waiting for? Dive into a new adventure!
Goal of the course
The PADI Discover Scuba Diver programme serves as a short introduction to diving and diving certificate courses. Thanks to this trial course, you'll be able to get an idea of what diving is, if you enjoy it, and what certificate courses look like in case you'd like to become a certified diver. If you enjoyed diving during this course and were also interested in what you were taught during the theory lessons or the things you learned with your PADI Scuba Diver Manual, you'll be ready for the Scuba Diver and Open Water PADI courses that'll allow you to improve your diving skills and become more autonomous.
Meeting & Preparation
We meet at our diving centre, at the scheduled time. As we're integrated into the Christina hotel, you'll see our business sign at the front entrance but don't worry - we're easy to find. We also offer a pick-up service from various places around Chania (if you'd like to use this service, please contact us once your booking is completed).
Once at the centre, you'll be asked to fill out some paperwork for the upcoming activity and you'll receive a PADI Scuba Diver Manual in which you'll find your learning material. After that, you'll be shown a DVD that'll explain the basics of diving such as the handling of your equipment and the most important hand signals used for communicating under water. After a short theoretical lesson, you'll simply have to get changed and put on your diving equipment.
- Theory Lessons
