PADI Discover Scuba Diving Program in the Riviera Maya
USD 129.00
Explore the underwater world of the Riviera Maya on this PADI Discover Scuba Diving course in Playa del Carmen. Learn scuba diving theory, complete a pool session, and do your first dives in the company of an experienced instructor. All equipment and instruction provided, no experience necessary. Hotel pickup and drop-off included.
What to Expect
There is nothing like breathing underwater for the very first time. It takes a little time getting used to it, but after a few minutes, you will realize how easy scuba diving really is. The biggest challenge instructors have with the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program is not getting participants into the water, but coaxing them out when the program is over.

You can head to any of the dive centers in the Riviera Maya and meet your instructor to start the program. First, you will start off with a pool session and then have a guided open water boat dive to one of the amazing local reefs. Discover this sport and the magnificent underwater world.

An incredible experience. Would highly recommend Pro Dive to anyone especially if you want to try diving for the first time. Special thanks to our dive master, Ruben. Ask for him if you go.

OMG, great for first time scrubs divers!

Let me start out by thanking Eli and the crew for every step of the way through this. They were friendly and helpful. Eli was by far the most patient person ever. I was very nervous being that I have never scuba dived before. But...More
