Have you ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you want to find out, but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover SCUBA Diving will let you try SCUBA to see if you like it.
The Discover SCUBA Diving experience is geared for everyone 10 years of age and older and includes 2 hours of fun! Our instructional staff will show you a short video and then it’s off to the pool to learn some basic SCUBA techniques.
While not an actual SCUBA certification, during the Discover SCUBA Diving experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water and get a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world!

During our regular pool sessions, either Pan Am or Cindy Klassen, you will be paired up with a divemaster or team of divemasters depending on your class size. Typically we keep these class sizes small but if you are a group we will ensure that we have enough staff for you all to enjoy the experience.
You will have 1 hour of briefing to understand the equipment and skills that you will be practicing. Then you will start in shallow water and work your way to the deep end if you are comfortable.
This is a great first step, before a full certification, if you are unsure if breathing underwater is for you!
Do you have a pool in your backyard.. or know someone that does?
We are able to offer the same experience in the comfort of your own oasis. Working the same as the Discover SCUBA’s at the City Pools, we will have 1 hour of briefing then 1 hour of in water time.
For the more adventurous type, we can also offer a Discover SCUBA at West Hawk Lake.
Though most of the equipment would be the same, you will also be fitted for a 2 piece 7mm wetsuit, hood, gloves and boots. You are responsible for the transportation of the equipment and yourself.
Again, you will have 1 hour of briefing on land and 1 hour in the water. You will start in a shallow, controlled area of West Hawk Lake where you will have a chance to practice some skills and get acquainted with the equipment. If you are comfortable we will be able to dive around the dive site to a maximum depth of 40 feet.
Additional fees will apply.
