The best choice for the first-timer is an Introductory Dive, also known as a "Discover Dive" - Its a way to get wet, experience the sensation, perhaps see a small amount of marine life, all whilst under very close supervision of an instructor.

An Introductory Dive does not get you a qualification you can use later on. It is a one off experience to see if you enjoy the sensation, or because your time does not allow for anything longer than one day. To do an "Introductory Dive" you still need to be able to perform a few basic skills and go over a few major points. The dive begins with a dry briefing either on board a vessel or beside the pool. Sometimes there is a video to watch and a quick quiz to complete. Afterwards you do a couple of skills in the water followed by a short shallow dive either in safe surrounds of a pool or in a safe shallow section of the reef. Your dive takes you as deep as 12 metres/40 feet. Of course this depends on wether you are in a pool or the ocean. The Instructor is by your side the whole time and will even hold your hand if you feel the need.

Please remember that this certificate is not a qualification and will not allow you any privileges next time you dive - it is simply a memento of one of the best experiences of your life. To get a recognised qualification you will need to complete a Learn to Dive Course.
